Creating a When rule
Evaluate a Boolean logical statement that involves comparisons among values of properties, to return true or false, by creating a When rule.For example, you can create a When rule to prompt a user to enter a delivery address only when the user specifies that the delivery address varies from the address of residence.

- Expand the Decision category, and then click When.
- On the When tab, click Create.
- In the Label field, enter a description of the When rule.Create names of when condition records that logically follow the word when.
For example: Enter IsTaskCompleted.

Show additional options, and then enter the expression.
For example: .BalanceRemaining > 0.0
- Optional: To enable editing the rule in the legacy mode, click Show additional
options, and then select the Use legacy authoring
mode check box.By default, you edit conditions in the condition builder. For more information, see Defining conditions for a When rule.
