Right click on your new workflow and choose "Properties..." then add conditions that specify which files belong in it.
EPDM 2011 SP2
Create Categories and use this as a condition that Michael was talking about...
Thanks guys, that did work.
I made the condition to "CAD Files" and now I can do exactly what I want.
However, once the files are in, how do I change the default back to where a drawing needs to go through all the state changes? Do I just modify the Properties again?
I was hoping they would both be there to pick from.
The original has an :"OR", and then an underlying category with "Cad Files"
Thanks again, I'll keep playing with it.
You really cannot have the option to pick from. If a file can go into more than one workflow, EPDM will pick the one it puts it in. I file will stay in a workflow forever unless you have a workflow link. The workflow link allows you to move files from one workflow to another. It does get tricky in setting up the conditions so that the file starts in the correct workflow but can still be capable of moving to the next workflow.
I think I understand what you are trying to achieve. Maybe you could just create a single Workflow with ALL the States and Transitions you want/need and then add an extra Transition to go directly from "Initiated" to "Approved".
You can have as many transitions between two States as you want. You control which transistion is used by setting the Permit right to different Groups / Users on each individual transistion. You can even have multiple the transistions with the same name and control which one is used within the properties of the transistion.
Hope this helps,
