How to set up conditions on Next-gen Workflows

I am wanting to set the condition that a parent task cannot be moved to 'Done' if there are open subtasks. Yes, I know there are rules. However, as opposed to preventing a parent task from being closed, it AUTOMATICALLY closes it. That's the opposite of what I want. 


tldr: how to add conditions, not an automation rule, to a next-gen workflow.

Hi Emily,

I know they are rolling out changes now to allow Next-gen workflows to be edited. Have actually tried to do that yet? 

Yes. The only transition edits allowed are a limited list of rules: next_gen_workflow_edit.png

Gotcha. I would assume that means you are stuck right now. Hopefully, there will be additional options coming, but who knows when. 

Ain't that the truth! haha thank you for your help to this point :)
