What is a submittal workflow anyway? The Submittal Workflow is the recruiting process your candidate will go through from initial application to hire or declined. There are a few choices you need to make when setting up your submittal workflow.
Standard Workflow or Custom Workflow
Each BrightMove account includes a stand workflow. You can use this one, create your own custom one, or add in additional statuses to the standard one.
Straight Path or Open Field
By default, the BrightMove Submittal workflow is open meaning that a candidate can move from any status to any other status. This is an open workflow. If you prefer you can also lock your workflow and require candidates to go through each different stage. There are pluses and minus to each different method. You can also pick something in the middle and require some important steps, but leave others open. The best part is you can change your mind later and edit your workflow.
