Set Manual Revisions and Lock File State

Long story short...

We had a very complicated workflow that we've decided to abandon (took way too long to process and difficult to manage when you had to rollback), so we've since opted to manually input our Rev variables via data card instead without using the workflow at all.

This is proving to be much more efficient for us; however, now we're having difficulty tracking the true Rev level without referencing the Version (which isn't on our drawings). Another complaint is that the file never becomes locked like it use to when going into an approved state.


What I'd like to achieve is a very simple workflow.

State 1 = Unlocked

State 2 = Locked


I'd like the transition from State 1 to State 2 to set the "manually entered" revision number from State 1. <-- this where I'm stumped. Can this be achieved?


Kindest regards,
