e-Recruiting - questionnaire to trigger WF idea verification
we are thinking about how recruiters can be best informed abaout a manager's assessment of a candidate.
Can a questionnaire result be linked to a WF? If so, how would you do it?
Or are there better ideas how to inform the recruiter?
Thanks in advance for your help!

what you wanna do is not a every da requirement but a quite common one. You want to have different processings after the manager completed the questionaire.
For example you have the following process steps in e-recruiting:
- inbox & pre screening
- pre selection
- hiring department
When the manager fills the questionaire in process step "hiring department" the candidate shall be moved into step "selection" by creating activity so it moves to the next tab on the screen. the activity is depending on the managers decision so the recriuter can easily see what to do in the most recent activity field.
You start with the topic a bit different than your description. You do not make 2 different workflows but only one which start on completion of an activity which happens automatically if the questionaire is filled (the careful programmer checks if the questionaire instance is really there and not someone in hr put the activity status manually).
In the workflow you read the questionaire. You can either get the overall result or what i prefere i get the answers and according to the question(s) and given answer(s) i have different branchs in the workflow. Of course you will have to build own functions for this either in a customer BOR object or by calling static class methods in container steps - just what u like.
Only point to take in mind is that questionaires differ from dev to test to production as they are usually not transported. so you better make a type A table where you put in the questionaire, question and answer id depending on the system.
If you have detailed questions just post another message.
