Requester Groups for Automation and Approvals

Requester groups need a lot of love.  Their use is extremely limited and lack basic functionality that other more robust systems like Ivanti and ServiceNow have.

With a requester group I should be able to:

  1. Restrict Service Catalog Categories (Only works on individual items)
  2. Automate ticket workflows (For example, set priority or send notification when someone in the VIP group submits a ticket)
  3. Send an approval to a group (For example, a request for Salesforce access requires approval from one of two individuals in the "Salesforce Business Owners" group
Like others have requested, we should be able to manually add users to a requester group.

#3 is a big one for properly managing approvals.  The workaround is to enter individual names into the workflow, but that is a nightmare to maintain.

Agreed, can we please get traction?

Will anyone else be at Refresh next week?  Lets see if we can't discuss this with dev.
