Configuring the Decision process

Configuring the Decision process is a two-step process: first, you must select the input cells, and second, you must configure the branches.


  1. Open an interactive flowchart for editing (click Edit in the flowchart toolbar).
  2. Drag the Decision process from the palette to your flowchart.
  3. Provide input to the Decision process by connecting it to one or more data manipulation processes.

    Data manipulation processes include Interaction, Decision, Sample, or Select.

  4. Double-click the Decision process.

    The Decision process configuration dialog box opens and displays the Decision tab.

  5. Select a source cell from the Input drop-down list.
  6. If you want the created segments to be mutually exclusive, select the Mutually exclusive branches check box.

    If you want a branch to contain all the remaining customer IDs, you must select Mutually exclusive branches.

  7. Configure the branches.
  8. Optional: Click the General tab to assign a name and notes to the process.

    The name appears on the process in the flowchart. The notes appear when you point to the process in the flowchart.

  9. Click OK.


The process is configured and appears enabled in the flowchart.
