Building a workflow with the Instruction-hook

Building a workflow with the Instruction-hook

Create a workflow to ask for approval of an invoice, travel request or declaration.
After the form is filled in, the administration or manager receives a notification to approve the request. The Instruction-hook will automatically send an instruction to the person who has to sign the form.

1.Install the Instruction-hook

To build a workflow you need to have the Instruction-hook. This hook first has to be installed for free from the Marketplace. Go the Marketplace, find the Instruction-hook under Hooks, and Enable it.


2. Create a form

If you want to create a workflow for the approval of a Holiday request for example; first you will need to create this form. After you have this form, you will need to copy the form and add a Signature-widget. In order to copy the form, you have to click on Copy in the Form Overview. Now the copied version of the original form has the exact same data names as the original, MoreApp can fill these fields with the answers given. In the copied form you will need to add an extra Signature-widget.

3. Configuring the hook

The next step is to configure the Instruction-hook. Open the first form in the Form Builder, go to Hooks, and add the Instruction-hook. Select the Folder which contains your second form for the Folder-property. Select your second form for the Form-property. Choose the Recipients of the instruction and add a message if it's necessary. Lastly, click on Save and then on Save & Publish.


4. Test your new workflow

We're done configuring the hook and it's time to test! Open your first form in the app and fill it out. If you're making use of the dynamic recipients, make sure to enter a valid recipient. Upon sending your hook you should see that the recipient(s) of the Instruction-hook receives a new work instruction. Open the work instruction and check if all your data is there. If so, congratulations!

5. Congratulations!

You just made a fully functional workflow! Of course, you're able to chain more than two forms using this method.
