Changing values of a field based on Workflow transition

I have a workflow with ~15 states. Between each of the states, I have implemented transitions, which cause a screen to appear with a single list select field, enabling the user to select a reason for the workflow transition.

In an effort to consolidate and for better reporting, I am looking to use a single list field, whose values will differ based on the transition of the workflow. Is there a way to implement this?

In other words, I am looking to customize the items that appear in the Select List based on the specific transition.

I implemented this using the JIRA Suite Utilities add-on to create a post-function, which in effect copies a specific field from a source to a destination. As an issue transitions through the workflow, and the user enters a reason for the transition, this reason is captured and copied onto the reportable field.
