Overview

Rule Steps evaluate a data input and return an outcome of True or False. This outcome path depends on how the input satisfies the conditions, that the Rule(s) contain. Rule Steps can contain custom or preexisting Rules as long as they have been saved in a folder that is visible to the user. Rule Steps can be found in the Toolbox panel.
