Shortcut - User Guide

In this article, you will understand step by step how to easily integrate with Shortcut

Integrating with Shortcut will streamline the auditing of the change management process and ensure an accurate and complete list of changes will be received for auditing purposes. A list of all changes is the starting point for the auditor when testing the change management criteria and this integration will make compliance with the change management criteria much more efficient.

This integration will only export and track all change request tickets that are relevant to the audit, only the relevant projects' change request tickets will be extracted.
This extraction process is automated by Scytale.
