Using Transition Conditions, files can be pushed to a branch of workflow, or into a different workflow.
This simple workflow illustrates how we can filter which destination workflow a file will enter, based on input from a file data card.
In this example file data card, the value for the variable Part Type, can be set to Custom or Standard.
Automatic transitions are used in this workflow, so that the only input required, is through the data card.
Conditions are set for each transition, to filter which direction a file will take in the workflow. A file with a value of ‘Custom’, for the variable Part Type, will transition to the Custom workflow link. A file with a value of ‘Standard’, for the variable Part Type, will transition to the Standard workflow link.
The workflow links will then move the files to the appropriate destination workflow.
