EPDM – Transition Action to run a Task

Article by Joe Medeiros, CSWE updated August 28, 2013


A Transition Action can be used to launch a Task. For instance, when a user changes the state of a drawing file, the file is saved as a PDF.

In a workflow, double-click a transition to access the Transitions Properties and left-click the Actions tab.
