15 DO NOT ADD OFFENDERS FROM OTHER STATES!
16 Adding Offenders DO NOT enter offenders outside of the Transfer Request or Request for Reporting Instructions assistants If the offender is already in ICOTS, select that offender record instead of adding a new record
17 Adding Offenders Each state is loading their active outgoing cases; if an offender is not in the system, DO NOT add them Search ICOTS for your offender. If the offender is not in ICOTS you must proceed with the old paper process.
18 MN Legacy Cases All outgoing cases active as of October 8th were loaded into ICOTS These cases are being assigned to agents in alphabetical order or as requested Cases are assigned to the agent listed in the Interstate database

23 Reassigning Cases In the Users tab, select Manage Case Load, then select a from user based on their role. You may enter the users name or login. You can either search Default Results or search by Offender Name.
24 Select a to user based on their role. Select the cases you would like to transfer to that user by clicking the boxes to the left of the appropriate cases. Once you have selected the cases, click the submit button. Once a case is reassigned, ICOTS will create a case note indicating the change.
25 VACATION Supervisors will have to designate another person with supervisor rights in ICOTS to cover their work while they are gone The designated person will need to monitor the supervisors workload within the Manage Case Load function Only Action Items will be assigned, not cases
26 If there is an Action Item for a case, the Manage Case Load process will reassign only the Action Items, not the case itself.
27 Workflow for Supervisor Vacations Two options for agents workflow: 1. Agents can change workflow to the temporary supervisor for the duration of vacation or 2. The temporary supervisor can contact an agent and have them change their workflow temporarily while they assign the action item. Once that is done the agent would change the workflow back.
28 Workflow for Agents Vacation Supervisors will need to manage agents workloads while agents are on vacation.
