States can handle several common Transitions directly, namely:
submit – a direct transition to one state
updated – an automatic transition which occurs when content is edited
rejected – transitions triggered by completion of a content review
expired – triggered when a state expires
completed – triggered when the last remaining task is completed
A state can contain a content review. When the workflow enters the state, the Workflow Popup will display options for the /wiki/spaces/AWPD/pages/6428168347 decision.
Reviewers must decide whether to approve or reject the content, and once they are in agreement the state will transition to the
rejected state as applicable.
Tasks can be created automatically when a workflow enters a state, and states can automatically transition when tasks are completed.
In the example, a task Check links is created by the workflow when entering the Rejected state.
The Tasks breadcrumb is added to the content sub-title and can be used to open the tasks popup.
Tasks can be created and added to a state by the workflow on transition to the state. The state can also be edited to allow users to manually add tasks using the tasks popup.
