SOLIDWORKS EPDM Transition Conditions can be added to a workflow transition to limit which files can pass through the transition. As an example, a file can only pass through a workflow if the variable ‘Checked By’ contains an associated value.
A Transition Action
In this example, in a proceeding transition, a user’s initials are mapped to a variable through a transition action.
A Transition Condition
Below, a condition is added to the transition, to only allow files to pass through the transition when the variable”Checked By” contains a value. In this example any value is acceptable.
‘OR’ and ‘AND’ Conditions
‘OR’ and ‘AND’ conditions can also be applied to better control the workflow. In the example below the variable “Checked By” has to have a value of “Bob” OR “Doug” AND the variable State must have a value of “Approved”.
The “OR” option is accessed by clicking on the Variable, as is the option to remove a condition.
