In KiSSFLOW, you can create two or more parallel workflows depending on the information received in a certain field.
In the “Define Workflow” section of the App Wizard, identify the place where you want the two separate workflows, or branches, to start. Click plus button and choose Add Parallel Branches.
You automatically start with two branches. You can add as many branches as you need by clicking the plus button.
First, give a title to each branch. I’m going to call one side “Small Projects” and the other side “Big Projects”.
I’ll base this on a Currency field I created earlier. You can use any field you want to create the condition for the workflow split. I want the workflow to flow to the left if the project is less than $100,000. I want it to flow right if it is greater than $100,000.
To do this, in the Small Project branch, I type in the name of the field, add the “less than” sign, and put in 100000. On the Big Project branch, I’ll put in the same field, but use the greater than symbol.
You can also use many common Excel formulas to create the conditions for when the branch happens.
I could also add a third branch if I wanted to for “High Profile Projects” that are worth more than $10 million.
Now, I’ll fill in the workflow with the tasks I want to happen based on each condition.
When completing the parallel branches, I can have them end within their branches, or if there is a common task that happens at the end, I can have the branches rejoin.
Let’ see what it looks like on the Home Tab.
The first item’s value makes it a Small Project. When you look at the workflow status, you can see that that the Big Projects tasks were skipped. The second item you see is a Big Project. It follow the other workflow and skips the Small Project steps.
