I have an automation that attempts to perform a workflow step transition, but I am using a transition screen during this transition and on that transition screen I require a comment to be added. Is there a way to get automation to automatically fill in some static text for this required "Comment" field on the transition screen, thus allowing the automation to complete the workflow step transition? Right now it fails because of this requirement.
I actually did just figure it out, thanks to another post here:
Worked perfectly for me!
Just ran into this issue myself. As a workaround I created an additional transition with a Condition 'Hide from user'. This transition can still be used by automation rules and thus allows me to keep the other (manual) transition with the transition screen and required comment field.
Okay. Thanks. Sounds like what I want to do can't be done, then.
I want to leave the field required so that if a user were to make this workflow step transition, they will be required to add a comment. The requirement would still stand for the automation process, as well, but I was looking to just give the automation static text to use. It doesn't sound like this is possible, though.
Thanks for the help.
