These columns can be sorted so that you can manage requests by scheduled date.

9.8.Reassigning a Request
If you wish to change the assignee, this is done via the Assignee pick list. Requests should NOT be reassigned from the "New" status, only from the "WIP" status.
If you wish to assign a request to a particular user it can be done in one of the following ways:
If you know the user is a primary member of a group, select that group and the user displays on the right hand box;
If you know the user belongs to a group, select that group and drill down to secondary members. The users display on the right hand box;
You can also key in part of the assignees name in the field and those users who match are displayed on the right hand side of the drop down.
When reassigning a request ensure that the Status is not currently set to REASSIGNED. You must change the status to WIP prior to reassigning a request to ensure that an automated email notification is sent to the new assignee.
