Edit simplified workflows Edited

Hello Team, 

Is it possible to use more than one simplified workflow in one project? 

Best regards

Hi Marcus - Welcome to the Atlassian Community!

Never tried to use two simplified workflows in a single project, but I assume the answer is yes. That's because you can put multiple workflows in a single workflow scheme. But each Issue Type in the workflow scheme can only be linked to a single workflow. 

Give it a whirl if that floats your boat.  :-)

No, you should never edit a simplified workflow. 

Technically, in the background, a simplified workflow is a standard workflow, so it looks like it can be edited or used by projects outside the board that it is for, but:

  • All projects included in the board must be using that one single workflow and no others (change that, and the "simplified" flag is automatically removed)
  • If you re-use the workflow for other projects, your board users could change someone else's workflow with no warning
  • If you edit the simplified workflow, you could easily lose all your changes the next time a board owner modifies the workflow

And, yes, you could point another board at the projects that are simplified, but you won't be able to modify the workflow via that board.
