      Can workflows be nested? I am trying to replicate a system I am currently using that is not WordPress, and my admin area has a few nested tabs levels. For instance, there might be a few tabs at the top for Shows / Exhibitors / Registrants. And under the Shows tab there might me Show Details / Coupon Codes / Venues / Ticket sales etc. If workflows can’t contain workflows, I would ask it that could be added to the road map?
      I have included a screen grab of part of my system and what I am dealing with. The less I have to change, the better for my users. But, I will admit it’s not laid out in the best way and perhaps I can improve on it with Piklist.

      Workflows can contain subtabs, which are essentially another set of Workflow tabs. But they can only go one level deep. Here’s a tutorial >

      Thanks, I had just found that tutorial and was coming on here to mentioned that I did and in testing I had learned they only went one level deep. I can work with that, most definitely.
      Thanks for the response. I am trying to move fast with this, so I might have more questions, but so far, once I got out of the starting blocks, things are moving right along.
      What’s interesting to me is, that tab system I posted above, the entire admin area is created by just defining the classes and relationships between them, my software then creates all the database tables, CRUD code, and HTML code to manage it. What you are seeing is the end result. The system is 22 years old and in some major need of replacement. That is what I am planning on doing with Piklist! And so far I am excited about what it can do. I just need to learn all it’s nuances.
      And once I do, I will be putting together a presentation to give to my local WordPress Meetups as none of us out here have used it before. I want to spread the love so to speak.
