Backtracking the workflow

Jun 11, 2010 at 7:51 AM

is there a way to backtrack the workflow?

The scenario we are facing requires the ability to return to the previous
state after each step, basicly allowing the user to return all the way
to the beginning of the workflow.

We were able to simulate it on simple workflow by adding transitions
in the oposite direction, but the diagram quickly gets cluttered and we
have to keep the track of the previous steps ourselves to be able to
select the correct branch to return to.

We must use extra transitons to implement backtrack. StateMachine itself does't provide such a functionality.

Thanks for the answer.
