Add a state flow transition

A transition represents the passage from one state to another. The source of the transition is the state where the transition begins and the destination is the state where the transition ends.

You can include a custom confirmation message message for when a content item transitions to another state. In such cases, users must confirm the transition to apply it.

For example, you can add a confirmation message for the transition from Working on it to Under review. When a user submits a content item for approval, this confirmation message acts as a checkpoint for the user to either proceed with the transition or cancel it.

  1. On the menu bar, click Manage manage icon.

  2. On the Manage page, click State flows.

  3. On the State flows page, click the desired state flow.

  4. On the state flow detail page, next the state you want to modify, click Edit transitions.
