Workflow Engine - Workflow Process Overview

Workflow Engine is a process orchestration platform that is the foundation for process management across all Cornerstone talent suites and external integrations. It is built using Amazon Web Services and is highly extensible and scalable.

Workflow Engine is flowchart-based and used to configure and edit workflows.

  3. View or edit user or system workflow activities.
  4. Set Triggers to enroll or edit employees in a workflow.
  5. Publish workflows.
  6. Assign Workflows.
  7. Execute Workflows.
  • To create a new workflow, go to Admin > Tools > Core Functions > Workflow Management > Workflow Library. Then select the Create Workflow button.
  • To edit a workflow, go to Admin > Tools > Core Functions > Workflow Management > Workflow Library and select the workflow you want to edit. Note: You can only edit workflows in Saved as Draft status.
