Engage Partner or Professional Services to add following configurations in the Offer Details template.

To create pre-defined Offer Approval workflow, add an <offer-approvers> section to the end of the Offer Detail XML.

  1.  editable=true/false determines if users can add or delete steps from the predefined workflow
  2.  Define the step id
    1. editable=true/false determines if users can change the default user populated.
    2. edtInvalidUser=true/false means that if the user selects an invalid Offer Detail template for a given requisition (meaning the user does not exist on the requisition) or the default user is inactive, the field will become editable. This setting is applicable for individual steps, rather than the whole workflow.

Example: Below is the example of how the offer approval template will be automatically populated with "Hiring Manager" and "Department Head". Similarly other roles can also be added, for more details refer the the following link from the implementation guide in the See Also section.

 <offer-approvers editable="true" reorder="true">
    <offerApprovalStep id="hiringManager" editable="false" editInvalidUser="true">
     <field-label><![CDATA[Hiring Manager]]></field-label>
     <field-label lang="en_US"><![CDATA[Hiring Manager]]></field-label>
        <default-user type="role"><![CDATA[G]]></default-user>
    <offerApprovalStep id="departmentHead" editable="true" editInvalidUser="true">
     <field-label><![CDATA[Department Head]]></field-label>
     <field-label lang="en_US"><![CDATA[Department Head]]></field-label>

Enabling this pre-defined offer approval workflow prevents the offer approval from being improperly routed. Users can also re-order approvers by clicking the up and down arrow icons next to the “Add Another” option.
