Previous Workflow Step

Previous Workflow Step

I'm working on an existing Workflow that's at a step and needs to route back to one of two previous steps, depending upon how it got to the current step. The current step has a "Revisit" action button - this button will return you to the step you came from, which is one of two separate paths.

I've been struggling to find something built-in that specifies "previous step" or "step from", but to no avail. I'm thinking I can get this to work with commands and hidden fields, but wanted to make sure I didn't make it more complicated than it needs to be. Am I on the right track here?

Re: Previous Workflow Step

Hi Jamie,

Unfortunately, I don't think you're making it more complicated than it needs to be. There's no OOTB "go back" function.

Re: Previous Workflow Step

Hi Jamie,
I suppose you are fine in your approach. If you are going to implement for a new workflow you can make use of workflow parameter and a execution step for routing back.
