Configuring entire workflow transitions or just single elements like complex conditions is a tedious process. Wouldn't it be great if you could reuse elements by simply copying and pasting them?

All workflow tabs (excluding triggers and properties) now come with a dedicated Copy Transition / element toolbar which will always be displayed. 

The toolbar is visible even if no elements (conditions, validators, and post functions) have been configured yet. Simply specify the workflow and transition that contains the desired element in order to copy and paste it.

The list will be auto-populated based on the selection (combination) of workflow and transition.

Copy & paste entire workflow transitions

Whether you prefer to work in text or diagram mode, a Copy Transition button will let you choose a transition you want to copy and paste.


In addition, the Copy button is also available in the diagram view when selecting a transition:

Applies to conditions, validators, and post functions.

Click on the copy icon to directly copy a specific workflow condition, validator, or post function and add it to the bottom of the list.
