Make two transitions between the workflow states, and give each the same name. Make one of the transitions have your special condition of that transition, the other a condition to take all other files. Choose which transition has your notification.
If the transitions have the same name, the user will only see one on his list, EPDM will decide which transition to be used for which file.
Did Jeff's response to you work? It seems like it would just confuse EPDM by having two transitions with the same name.
Stephen, the key to Jeff's solution is setting the conditions on the transitions so that a file can only go through one of the transition. Notification transition would have condition of flag = true. Non notification would have condition of flag = false.
Ahhh. That makes sense. Thanks -
While I don't know everything there is to know about EPDM, the company I am working
for is looking into getting it. Talking to my VAR we were looking for very similar functionality
as you are looking for. They told us it can be done. Forgive me, but my notes on this
topic and what they told me are at work. So I am lacking in the terminology department
at the moment. But in researching on Google, I found this cool website that I will share with
I have used the same thing Jeff suggested since 2008 and it works flawlessly.
When engineering releases 500 SolidWorks parts/drawings/assemblies to Production, we don't want 500 email notifications, the project team wants to see ONE email notification on a representative word document representing the top level kit/checklist.
The transition having the same name makes it so the user will only see one transition name such as "Release" or "Approve" when selecting multiple files. The filter on the transition forces EPDM to route the one word doc through the transition that generates the email and the other 500 sld* files through the standard transition. When the Release editor finalizes all drawings, they transition all 500 SolidWorks files + the 1 kit/checklist document and the email notification kicks out ONE email to the groups to notify them of drawing release.
