About Matrix RulesLast Updated: 11/29/2018 Introduced in Version:
A Matrix Rule is a rule that is a matrix that can be made up of many different rows and columns. A Matrix Rule is used to evaluate data with settings that can be customized to each specific row or column. Each row and column can have specific parameters and you can nest these rule evaluations within each row or column. When a Matrix Rule runs it has an outcome result, each outcome from a horizontal column creates a column for our Matrix, and each outcome from the vertical row creates a row for the Matrix.
Below is an example of what you will see when configuring settings for a Matrix Rule (Figure 1).
After the Matrix Rule has been configured it will appear in a simple Matrix flow (Figure 2).
One example of a Matrix Rule can be demonstrated through the use of automated emails. The automated emails can be different depending on the day of the week and it can also have a different outcome depending on the individual emailing as well as the specific day of the week.
