Defining Decision Branches
If you connected the decision steps to the next steps in the process with connector arrows, as described in Diagramming a Workflow Process, branches are automatically created and appear in the Next Step applet. If this is the case, modify the branch fields as necessary and then go to About Conditions and Values for Decision Steps for the procedure on defining conditions and values for each branch.
To define a decision branch
- Drag and drop a connector arrow to the workspace, connecting the Decision step with the new next step.
- Click the connector arrow to access the WF Step Branch applet.
- Enter or modify the branch name.
NOTE: The name of the branch must be unique or you will not be able to commit the record.
- Choose a branch type. Type values are described in Table 7.
CAUTION: Always define a Default branch step in case some work items do not meet any of the conditions you define.
- Enter any comments.
- See Defining Conditions and Values for Branches, Decision Steps, and User Interact Steps to define the conditions that apply to each branch.
- Verify in the Process Designer that the decision point branch is connected with a connector arrow to the appropriate next step.
The handles of the connector arrow will be red if they are correctly attached to the steps.
NOTE: Decision points can have multiple decision point branches. Repeat Step 1 through Step 7 for additional branches.
- Go to the next procedure, Defining Conditions and Values for Branches, Decision Steps, and User Interact Steps to define the conditions that apply to each branch.
