Reusing transitions

Hi guys, 


okay this might be a very trivial question but here you go. When I add a post function to a reused transition, does this affect the reused one in the other workflow (of which I have no clue where it is used)?
Or what is the purpose of reusable transitions?

My best

Hello @Merve Nur Bas 

A reused transition in a workflow means that a transition goes from any status in the workflow to the same end status. So if we have status A B C and want to be able to go to D. We can use reuse transition T from A B C that all ends at status D. This does not affect other workflows. If you add a post function to transition T in the example above it is going to run from all statuses associated with it. 

In short: you cannot reuse a transition between workflows.

Best regards,

Hi  @Merve Nur Bas ,

a transition can only be reused within the same workflow.
