    This was inspired by a question from:  Patsy Pollice

     

    This is a example of calling different workflows (Compound Tasks) from a Master workflow and or then an advanced catalog item:

     

     

    Catalog A   Options 1,2,3  Calls workflow ABC

     

    Workflow ABC   Task A -> Task B -> If option 1 call compound workflow/task  abc1

                                                           If option 2 call compound workflow/task abc2

                                                           If option 3 call compound workflow/task abc3
