Creating Groups of Related Rules
Related rules are those that have the same basic construction but differ only in content. For example, you need to create a dozen exclude rules of the form Product A excludes Product B. For each rule the products will be different, but the basic construction is the same.
There are several processes you can use to create groups of related rules. In the following example, you are going to create twelve exclude rules. Here are the processes you can use to create them:
- Create each rule using the Exclude template in the "Pick a Rule" tab of the Rule Designer.
- Create the first rule and save it. Then edit the rule so that it becomes the second rule and save the rule. In the Save Rule form, click "Save changes as new rule." This creates the second of the twelve rules. Repeat these steps to create the remaining rules.
- Create the first rule and save it. Then copy the rule 11 times. Edit each of the copies. In the Save Rule form, click Save to overwrite the copy with the changes.
- Create a rule and save it as a template. Then select this template to create the remaining rules.
