It sounds like the “starting point” for all most all of these workflows are:
A user goes to a group and goes to the ‘ more actions, should be "Electronic forms" ‘ menu option.
"Join" a group could kick off a workflow too. ( A special “opt-in” type condition.)
I think it would be generally more useful if workflows could be started from other “Events” too.
Folder create, group create, membership add , membership remove , attribute values add/change/remove, etc…
Maybe Hooks could be given a way to kick off a workflow?
Maybe even start a workflow from a workflow?
To allow chaining when the state of the first workflow should start a “response/sub workflow”( maybe to another set of people?)
Which could allow branching between workflows that would return a “value”[ID of sub workflow] to the calling workflow?
Which might also allow the “10 params/input” limit to be “10 at a time/stage”. :)
It is not clear to me how actions/tasks would be implemented. ( AKA: Decide to “allow something” or “block it” and end the workflow. )
How someone would be able to “Send an email when “X” happens in the workflow”. ( or add/remove a membership, etc…)
Again, maybe a new kind of Workflowhook fires on: State change? On params change?
For the simple case of a “one page form” could an “eform” just call to an “eforms class” ( or gsh/jexl script?) for processing?
Think “html form post action target” when the user is done supplying values.
Maybe via a “message listener”?
On completion of the eform/workflow…. Can where the user is returned be controlled from inside the workflow?
On Behalf Of Hyzer, Chris
This is something we have had a lot of requests for and that we would like to start on soon (eforms / workflow / approvals)
We discussed this briefly in the last dev call. This is the current design (not completely fleshed out yet).
Please let me know your thoughts
