Hiring tutorial > Create the user interface >

In this lesson, you enable the hiring manager to return to the editable job requisition form by adding the flows for the two Back buttons.

In the Create Position Request CSHS human service, there are three coaches. When you connected the coaches in the human service flow, their default OK buttons provided the boundary event to move the flow to the next step. As part of creating the user interface in the coaches, you renamed the OK buttons to Next or Submit. The human service diagram depicts this change.
Shows the completed Create Position Request CSHS human service diagram.

When a user clicks Next in the Create position request coach, the flow leaves that coach and enters the decision. The flow then enters one of the other two coaches. The Specify existing position coach contains two buttons. If the user clicks Next, the flow goes to the Confirm position details coach. If the user clicks Back, nothing happens. In this lesson, you create a boundary event that causes this second flow to go back to the Create position request coach.

Procedure

  1. In the Create Position Request CSHS human service, select the Diagram tab.
  2. Make the following connections:
    • The Specify existing position coach to the Create position request coach
    • The Confirm position details coach to the Create position request coach
    • Both coaches have two coach views that fire boundary events: the Next button and the Back button. The Next button already has a binding for its boundary event. The Back button does not have a binding so the Back button is used to create the flow.

      Tip:If the lines going back to the Create position request coach are not correct:

      1. Select a flow line.
      2. In the General properties the End state binding property shows the button that is bound to the flow line. Click Select.
      3. The coach opens. Click the button to which you want to bind the flow line.

    The diagram now has flow lines that return the flow to the Create position request coach when the user clicks Back.
    Shows the completed Create position request client-side human service diagram with the two back sequence flows.

  3. Save your work.

Summary

You have flow lines that return hiring managers to the editable requisition form when they click Back in the coaches.

In the next lesson, you create the GM Approval CSHS client-side human service.
