Can I limit the transitions that are displayed in the define approvals tab?

When mapping a transition to an approval, it would be great if I could only display the Transitions that we need to  use.  All workflow transitions are currently displaying, so it gets a little confusing to have to scroll down to find the transition you need to map.

In order to meet your requirement and increase usability, we are able to provide the choice to filter the displayed source/destination status linked by a selected workflow transition.


The configuration screen will look like as showed below:


The select list will display transitions alphabetically ordered in which you can also type in your choice.

Please, let me know if this new functionality is able to encounter your needs.


Best Regards,


Thank you for your response. This is the screen I am referring to. I want to limit what is displayed on this screen to the end user. For example using your screen shot above, I would want to just show In Review >> Done but none of the others. Is there a way to filter this already?

If you would only show the transitions that have been defined on the approval mapping screen instead of all transitions in the workflow that would work.

Add-on version 3.5 (due date: February 2, 2016) will offer the feature. Regards
