Application Workflow Templates

The Application Workflow Templates page enables administrators to view and manage standard and mobile-friendly application workflows. Administrators can create, edit, copy, delete, activate, or deactivate application workflow templates from this page.

An application workflow defines the experience a job applicant has when applying for a job. As a result of creating templates, when configuring a job requisition template or creating a job requisition, the administrator can select from the workflow templates that are created on this page.

To access the Application Workflow Templates page, go to Admin > Tools > Recruitment > Application Workflow Templates.
