Adding a workflow transition
A workflow transition is when an item meets the predefined
conditions that allow it to be changed from one type to another. Add a new
workflow transition. Give it a name. Describe it. You must select a source
item type and a destination item type for every workflow
transition. It can be helpful to give a workflow transition a name that is
based on the source and destination item types. If a workflow transition
requires approval, then choose the user, role, or group of users from the
Approval List drop-down.
