AFAIK, there is no out-of-the-box functionality. We had to develop a customization as in our case, The previous item may or may not obsolete. We have different statuses, Service,Obsolete. Etc.
BTW, we are using TC 10.1.3 and we are using the customisation.
Hope this helps !
You can use this handler: TCX-release-previous-itemrevs
Sets a status on the current revision's preceding item revisions, dependent on their current status. Subsequently, the specified item revisions can optionally be sent into a workflow.
Thanks for that - the TCX-release-previous-itemrevs seems to work fine.
Obviously will need to test it a little more but signs are promising.
You are welcome Paul.
To make things more easier for you, create a new workflow template called "Quick Obsolete...".
Use the handler with argument -proc_name="Quick Obsolete".
Assign this new WF template for admin for addressing day to day support issues.
