Edit Icon

  1. Apply edits to the following fields:
    • Type: Select a new Type from the Type dropdown list.
      • Button: The Button Trigger type adds a button to configurable forms, which moves an Object from its current state to another state (e.g., clicking the Submit for Review button on a form will move the object to the In Review state).
      • Timed: The Timed Trigger type moves an Object to a specified state and can perform actions nightly (e.g., create a trigger that notifies users of an overdue deadline or reminds them to launch an assessment on a particular day). 
        • The Timed Trigger type cannot be added to the Creation state. Read more here: Timed Triggers & Nightly Emails Schedule.
        • If a state contains multiple Timed Triggers with conditions, you must create separate Transitions for each Trigger.
      • Consume Orchestration Event: The Consume Orchestration Event Trigger type uses an existing state or Object Type’s Send Orchestration Event action to automatically Transition an object to another predefined state (e.g., Closing an audit object will also automatically close all issue objects in an Open state).
        • The Consume Orchestration Event Trigger type also cannot be added to the Creation state.
    • Show in Workflow Control: The toggle switch bypasses conditional logic requirements that may prevent the Trigger from appearing on the form.
    • Name: Enter a new Trigger Name.
    • Description: Enter a new Trigger Description.
    • Color: Enter a new 6-digit hex code or click the field to select a color from the Color Palette dropdown.
