Here is an example of a workflow started when a new employee is added to an Employees contacts list. This workflow starts workflows for each department that has to perform tasks prior to an employee’s start date (which is a field in the Employees list). Notice that each Start Another Workflow has been configured with a custom Display Name to make the workflow easier to follow.
Each of the workflows in the Start Another Workflow widgets is configured with a workflow initialization form variable to gather the Employee ID stored in the Employees contacts list, because this ID is needed in the workflow. The value for this form field is provided in the Start Another Workflow widget, as shown below.
