Hello

Employee submits his self assessment to his manager through a custom form(starting workflow process).
Manager receives a notification from employee contains a link to open a custom form.
After opening the form ,manager enters his assessment for his subordinate and press the button to send a notification to employee(resume the previous workflow process)

my question is
how to pause this process till the manager press the button back in the custom form

I need your help please

Thanks

Hi,

I would include a new node in the Workflow process after the notification is sent to receive a custom business event.

Then when the button is pressed in the form, raise that business event with an event key that matches the item key for the Workflow process.

When the event is raised, the process will restart.
