How to change workflow state without state transition
Posted by Toni Långsjö (M-Files) on 30 September 2019 08:54 AM

1     Overview / Work Notes

Sometimes M-Files users may end up to situation where the workflow state is not a wanted one and there is no state transition available in workflow design back to the wanted state. For example, user may change the document state accidentally to Approved state and there seems not to be a possibility to return to the previous state.

2     Solution / Workaround

User with administrator privileges can however change the workflow state without following the state transitions. This is possible via the task area which is located on the left side of the user interface and can be expanded or collapsed by clicking the gray vertical tab. There is selection Change State (Admin) available for Administrator users. They can change the workflow states for the selected object freely.
