For most transitions, the name appears as a button on the item details page that users can click to transition items to another state. Certain transition names do not appear as button labels. For example, names for Submit transitions are not used in SBM Work Center. However, the state change history and change history reflect the name you provide here.
You can replace a transition button with a button, hyperlink, or image control that can be placed anywhere on the form. For button and hypertext controls, you either use the transition name as the control label, or type a different name. For examples, see Custom Transition Control Tutorials.
