Transitions Overview

Transitions move primary items from state to state. Most transitions are available as buttons on state forms. Users click a transition button to initiate the transition. In many cases, users can enter data about an item on a transition form before completing the transition.

Transitions can be customized in many ways. For example, you can:

Inheritance Rules for Transitions

Every transition contains a set of properties that define how the transition acts, such the originating and receiving states, and the fields needed for data collection from users during the transition. These types of transition properties are inherited throughout the application workflow hierarchy. This lets you configure transition properties once rather than for each workflow.

For example, in an application workflow, you can create transitions that are needed throughout all the workflows. The individual transition properties, like the From and To properties, are set once in the parent workflow and inherited in any sub-workflows and duplicated workflows.
