I mean for this purpose "Sub-Tasks" are best.

You can create sub-tasks and assign to individual users to fullfil parent.

On the parent Workflow select a transition to DONE or RESOVED or CLOSES (Green Color)

  1. Select a transition (e.g. Resolve) and click Conditions.
  2. Click Add condition.

Please check this case too
