Configuring a Decision Step in a Scenario

The decision must be preceded by one screen object that is followed by, and connected to, at least two objects within the scenario diagram to allow decision configuration. If the decision is not connected to another object, an error message appears.
  1. In the Project Explorer, select the scenario containing the step you want to configure. The Scenario Designer appears.
  2. Right-click the decision step to configure, and then select Configure from the menu. The Configuration dialog box opens and displays the default choices: one set for by default and one set for when settings.
  3. Select the first Proceed to <screen name> option button from the following:
    1. by default. Select this choice to indicate that the screen that follows the decision in the diagram is next in the scenario, without any further conditions.
    2. when. Select this choice to configure a condition based on several factors, such as a data table element, or an action present in the screen, or to compare two options with an expected outcome. Choose one option with its paired choice from the following list:
    • Equals, plus a selection that the result must be equal to. Either select a choice from the list box, or type the choice name.
    • Not equals, plus a selection that the result must not be equal to. Either select a choice from the list box, or type the choice name.
    • Greater than, plus a selection the result must be greater than. Either select a choice from the list box, or type the choice name.
    • Less than, plus a selection that the result must be less than. Either select a choice from the list box, or type the choice name.
    The Configuration dialog box shows one decision condition as the by default condition, and one condition as a when condition, where the when choice is configured to produce a result based on information you selected in the project, such as a data table or an action button.
  4. Optional: Click the Plus button to add additional when conditions with the following choices:
    • AND adds the related choice to the previous choice, which means both choices must be true for this selection to be valid.
    • OR adds the related choice as an option to the previous choice, which means either choice can be true for this selection to be valid.
    • Equals plus a choice for equals. Either select a choice from the list box, or type the choice name.
    • Not equals plus a choice for not equals. Either select a choice from the list box, or type the choice name.
    • Greater than plus a choice for greater than. Either select a choice from the list box, or type the choice name.
    • Less than plus a choice for less than. Either select a choice from the list box, or type the choice name.
