Restricting field update

Hi,

I am trying to create a workflow and the swim lane is as follows:

1) A document is uploaded and the document status field  is "Ready For Review"

2) The Proj-admin user group should only be allowed to change the document status to "Review-done".

3) The tech-writer user group should only be allowed to change the document status to "Integration-done".

4) The "document status" field should not be allowed to change directly from "Ready for Review" to "Integration-done".

Is restricting a field update until certain condition is met possible with Nintex workflow? or what is the best way to build such a workflow?

Re: Restricting field update

yes, you can easily achieve your requirements.

let just the workflow to control/change status field.

when creating a task to respective groups give them only possible outcome like 'task completed'.

when you  get task confirmed by proj-admin, you know it means 'review-done' so workflow changes the status field to that status.

when you get task confirmed by tech-writer, you know it means 'integration-done' so workflow changes the status field to that another status.

etc.
