Admin - Application Workflows

Overview

Admin Users can create different applications, or application workflows, so that each job listed on the Job Board has the appropriate questions and requirements available in the application. Different jobs on may require different workflows depending on the type of job, the duration of the job, job location, etc.  Admin users can create different application workflows for these types of scenarios. 

Workflows are created by configuring different workflow sections, which are screens that the applicant will see when applying for a job. All users can apply one of the five workflows to a selected job posting. 

Admin Users can customize up to four application workflows and have access to the standard Quick Apply workflow. With the exception of the Quick Apply workflow, all custom application workflows can be edited in the future.

Any job posting that already exists on the Job Board will use the Quick Apply workflow.

If an applicant has gone through any workflow at any time, including the old applicant portal process, then the talent would not be required to re-apply.

For several workflow sections, the applicant will have access to a Back button. The applicant will not be able to go back further than the Personal info screen to update or change data.

Data generated by an application workflow will populate in the Original Online Application Report in the Avionté core application. For more information, see the Original Online Application Report article. 

 

Note: When creating a workflow, it is possible to lose data when being redirected to create a new account. In the event data may be lost by continuing, click Next or save data on the unfinished page, then create the account.

The short video below walks through the fundamental setup and use of Application Workflows.

Quick Apply Workflow

All Aero users will have the standard Quick Apply workflow. The Quick Apply workflow is automatically set to be the default workflow, but it is possible to make another workflow the default. The Quick Apply workflow cannot be deleted and will always remain as an optional workflow. The order of the workflow is not configurable.

Because the Quick Apply workflow is added by default, it can be applied to a job posting if no other workflows have been created.

The Quick Apply Workflow includes the following workflow sections:
Note: For more information on workflow sections, see the Admin - Application Workflows - Workflow Sections article for more information.

Flow Properties Tab

The Flow Properties tab defines the screens the applicant encounters in an application, and also defines what information they provide when applying to a job posting. To either define or edit the Flow Properties for a workflow, see the steps listed below:

  1. Click the Flow Properties tab. This tab will open by default when a new application workflow is created.

    flowproperties.1.png


  2. On the Flow Properties tab, enter a name for the workflow in the Job application workflow name field. This is a required field.

    workflowname.1.png


  3. If this workflow should become the default workflow, place a checkmark in the Default application workflow check box. This is optional and only one workflow can be considered a default at any given time. This is the workflow that will appear at the top of the Application Workflow drop-down menu in the Posting section. At least one workflow must be set to "Default."
    Note: The default workflow must always be an Active workflow.

  4. Mark the Workflow status as either Active or Inactive by selecting the appropriate radio button. If a workflow has a status of Active, it can be used for all future job posts. All workflows marked as Inactive cannot be applied to future postings. To deactivate a workflow, see the Activate/Deactivate an Existing Workflow section below.

    workflowstatus.png


  5. Select which workflow sections will appear in the application workflow. Each workflow section represents a page that will be visible to the applicant and defines the information collected. By default, all workflow sections are included in every new application workflow. The order of the workflow sections is not configurable. For more information, see the Admin - Application Workflows - Workflow Sections article.

    To remove a workflow section from the workflow, click the greenx.png button next to the item. The item will turn gray, indicating that it will NOT be included in the application workflow.


    To add a workflow section, click the _.png button next to the item. The item will turn light green, indicating that it will be included in the application workflow.


  6. Click a workflow section to view additional configuration properties. An item that has been selected will turn bright green and the additional settings will appear on the right side of the screen. See the Admin - Application Workflows - Workflow Sections article for more information.

  7. Click Save Workflow.

Link Settings Tab

The Link Settings tab defines an optional URL and optional theme for the selected application workflow. Applicants who receive the workflow URL can submit their application directly without going through a job posting. An application workflow theme that includes a logo and defined colors can also be set for any selected workflow. To either edit or set the Link Settings for a workflow, see the steps listed below:

 

  1. Click the Link Settings tab.

    linksettings1.png


  2. The Flow link (URL) address field allows Admin Users to set a URL for the workflow, allowing applicants submit an application without applying to a specific job. Enter a URL in the blank field.

    • A minimum of five characters are required in the Flow Link (URL) address field.

    • To clear or remove a URL, click the grayx__1_.png button next to the URL field and click Save Settings.

    • If a URL is updated, anyone who uses the old URL will be automatically redirected to the new URL.

    • If the workflow is active, the assigned URL will also be active. If the workflow is deactivated, the URL will be deactivated and an error message stating "This URL no longer exists" will display.

    • The URL for the Quick Apply workflow is "quick-apply." This cannot be changed, only removed. If the URL is removed, and needs to be added again, "quick-apply" will auto-fill when the field is clicked. 
      Note: A theme is not required to save changes to the application workflow URL.

  3. Apply a color theme to the workflow by selecting a theme from the Workflow theme drop-down menu.
    • A preview of the theme is visible below the Workflow theme drop-down menu. 

    • If a theme has not been defined, the "Default" theme is displayed in the preview.

    • For more information on creating Themes, see the Admin - Themes article.

    • The theme applied to the workflow is only used when an applicant enters the workflow directly through the URL link. If the applicant enters the workflow from the Job Board, the theme chosen for the Job Board will override theme selected for the workflow.

  4. Click Save settings to save changes.

Deactivated workflows cannot be applied to future postings but will remain active for any current job posting that uses that workflow. If the workflow is active, the assigned URL will also be active. If the workflow is deactivated, the URL will be deactivated and an error stating "This URL no longer exists" will display.

  2. Click Application workflows from the left menu bar.
