Multiple Conditions for Emails and Data Routing

We’re excited to announce that you can now use multiple conditions for your email notifications and for your Data Routing rules!  This means that you can now check more than 1 condition is met before running the action.  When testing multiple conditions, you can either use an “And” or an “Or” to indicate what conditions need to be met.

A little bit more about how our algorithm works for these conditions… We loop through each of your conditions and test each one individually.  If the result is “true” and the operator is an “Or”, we exit the loop and run the action.  If the result was “false” operator was an “And” we continue on to the next condition.

Here are some examples of what the end result will be for combinations of true and false conditions:

(true AND true AND true) = true

(true AND false AND true) = false

(true AND false OR true) = true

(true OR false OR true) = true

(false AND false AND false) = false

(false OR false OR false) = false

To use this new feature, simply click the [Add another condition] link underneath your default condition when editing your Notification Emails and Data Routing rules.
