If two workflows have conflicting or overlapping conditions, what happens when the object is checked in? Is an error thrown or does it get the workflow based on the order in which the wf was created or alphabetically or?


For example, if;

  • WF A has the condition Filepath = %.slddrw
  • WF B has the condition Filepath = %\Electrical\%

And a user checks in a .slddrw file that is in a vault folder with 'Electrical' in the path, what happens?
