You can now configure the Conditions and Actions for the custom action button.

  1. Enter a name for the custom action button. This name will then appear on the button on the work package.
  2. Set a description (i.e. what are the conditions and actions).
  3. Set the conditions for which the custom action button should apply, e.g. in which status, for which role, what type or in which project should the custom action button appear.
  4. Set the actions what should happen after pressing the custom action button, e.g. status transitions, and changes to any other attribute.
  5. Save your changes.


If a work package is then in the defined condition, the button will appear on top of a work package and will apply the actions and changing the attributes of a work package as defined in the configuration when clicking on the button.
