Flowchart design considerations

Be aware of the following considerations when you create flowcharts.

  • Avoid cyclical dependencies. Be careful not to create cyclical dependencies among processes. Consider this example of a cyclical dependency: (a) Your flowchart contains a Select process whose output provides input to a Create Seg process. (b) The Create Seg process generates a strategic segment as its output. (c) You use that segment as input to the Select process. This situation results in an error when you try to run the process.
  • Applying global suppressions. If your organization uses the global suppression feature, it is possible that a particular set of IDs might be automatically excluded from use in target cells and campaigns. The flowchart log file indicates whether global suppression is applied.
