    Setting Variables through Transitions

    Rodney Michels



      I am trying to set some variables when a file gets transitioned. I would like to stop a transition when the Check By initials match the Drawn By initials. 


      What I am doing is this, when a file gets transitioned from the state "InDesign" to "Checked", in the "Ready for Release" transition,


      I am automatically entering the users initials by using the Set Variable action.


      so when you look at the data card after the transition, you see the users initials.


      Image below is before transition


      Image below is after transition

      Does anyone know how to stop a transition if the Checked By Initials match the Drawn By initials?
