By creating a new state dispatched, this extension allows to dispatch an Incident ticket to a Team, without assigning it to particular Person. From the dispatched state the Incident can then be assigned to a Person.

The definition of the TTO (Time To Own) metric is also modified to take into account the “dispatched” state (The Time To Own stops when the ticket is actually assigned to a Person, not only dispatched to a Team).
