Conditional Buttons to transition entities through states

I wasn’t sure if this is should be a question to the community about use of buttons, or a feature request, but what I wanted to talk about was using buttons as a means to easily transition through States. This is a great feature of Jira, and some other tools.

What I’d really like to see is to be able to set up workflows so that you are only allowed to move to a certain state if conditions of the current state are met, such as a field that requires a result of a software test, is filled.

Also, a button that takes an entity straight to “completed” or “closed” from somewhere in the middle of the workflow is very useful, too.

Thanks guys!
