Transition Action Variables

You can use system variables when defining transition actions. For example, you can include the file name (%filename% variable) in the subject line of an e-mail action.
To update the file data card with the revision number, use the system variable Next Revision. Otherwise, the variable is updated with the file's current revision number (before the transition). The same applies when using the Next Version system variable. Use Next Version if updating a variable with the file version number following the transition.
