Hello,

We are defining a workflow with 11 or 12 active states. At this point all but one of the possible transitions are forward-flowing; in other words I have not defined any back or return transitions.

The team would like the ability for a few specific users to send an item to any of the earlier states (except Submitted). The rest of the users must not be able to do this, i.e. they must conform to the defined workflow.

It appears this is possible by adding the State field to the update form and creating a role for those specific users allowing the "Edit fields in System section" privilege, but I wanted to confirm if this is possible and/or if this is the best way to do this.

Thanks.

-Brian

    Yes, that is possible. Another approach is to add another transition that is role restricted and make the State field editable in that transition.
