A workflow consists of steps and transitions.
A step represents a workflow's current status for a workflow item. A workflow item can exist in one step only at any point in time. Each workflow step corresponds to a linked status. Each status can be used in multiple steps or in different workflows.
There are three different types of steps:
- Start Step — the starting point of any workflow, where you start working on a workflow task (can only be one);
- Intermediate Step — steps in between starting and end point of a workflow. The number of intermediate steps is not limited;
- End Step — the end of a workflow. The number of end steps is not limited.
A transition connects two workflow steps thus allowing a workflow item to move from one step to the next.
