The Goto step is available only when defining a substep within a choice step. You use a goto step to jump to a named step within your process definition. Like the End process step, it is a terminal step and no + (plus) icon appears after it.
- In the Goto step dialog > Details tab, type a Name and Description in order to help you and others to identify the tasks in your task list.
- Select a Goto step in this process definition to follow next.
The process definition used here illustrates models for driving a car. If you turn left, then you continue your journey. As long as you continue turning left, your journey continues. If you turn right, you drive a short distance to your final destination. The goto step provides two ways of managing the flow of control in a process:
- You can implement repetition, as illustrated.
- You can also move the flow of tasks to another step in the current process.
