Assignment rules allow you to automate your lead generation and support processes by helping you control the record's assignment.

Assignment is important since the owner of the record is the person that will work on the specific lead or case to move it along in the process. Assignment rules allow you to set rules that will assign a new lead or case to a specific user or queue based on criteria.
