I would like to implement the following workflow: a "potential church volunteer (PCC)" fills in his or her details in a profile hyper-linked to from a WordPress website. This creates a contact in CiviCRM (hosted on a different server) and opens a "case" with a series of activities which must be applied to the contact over time (some immediately, some in 1 week, and so on).
So far, I've implemented this by setting up the profile so that it assigns new contacts to the group "PCC Unopened Case". This then requires a member of staff to go into CiviCRM, move the contact to a new group "PCC Opened Case", remove them from the original group, and open an already built case called "PCC Workflow" for that contact. That's a rather manual solution, and the charity I'm volunteering for doesn't love it. I'm aware of CiviRules, though I've not used it because it's currently not supported on the Spark-hosted solution I'm trialling. (By the way, the support provided by Spark is really outstanding.) Is there another less manual -- perhaps even standard pattern -- for implementing such a process (submit details -> open case -> follow through on activities). Many thanks, Patrick.
