4. Select the additional Criteria that is needed to trigger your Workflow (Note: This step can be skipped, if not required) 

There are three Criteria sections:

Is Associated With: This workflow will trigger for the user who is already affiliated with a Department, Group, Etc. 

Is Added to: The workflow will trigger when users are added to a particular Department, Group, Etc.

Hired Range: The workflow will trigger when users are hired today, 30 days ago, within the last specified days, or a specified amount of days ago.

The Criteria section "Is Added To" will only show as an option when either the Audiences “A User is Updated” and “A User is Created and Updated” is selected beforehand.

For more information on setting up Group Criteria, please see the Group Workflows guide.

5. To Assign content, search for the content and select it. Assigned content will show up as a required assignment for the learner, and can be given Due Dates. 

Note: Any content created within Continu can be assigned from a workflow, including workshops and assessments.

6. To Share content, search for the content and select it. Shared Content will be sent to the learner, but will not be a required assignment and cannot be given a due date. 


7. Create a name for your workflow. This name will appear on the Workflow Admin Page if you need to edit, activate, or deactivate the workflow. 

8. If you've created an assignment, you can set a Due Date by toggling the Set A Due Date Button on. This due date will be from the time the Assignment is created. 
Note: The Due Date cannot be 0. It must be 1 day or higher.


9. If you'd prefer, you can set your due Date based on the learner's Hired Date rather than the assignment Date. To do so, select the Due from Hired Date toggle.
If the Learner does not have a Hired Date on their account, the due date will default to the standard Due Date.


You can choose if you'd like to enable Recompletions or not with the Require Unique Completions Toggle. Enabling this toggle will allow the workflow to assign content that has been previously completed by the user.
