Branch Activity

Enables an activity to jump or branch to another activity in the running Process Timeline. For Process Director v3.49 and above, the use of this Activity type should be replaced, in most cases, by the use of the Looping functionality available in the Parent activity type.

In addition to the common properties tabs that appear for all Timeline activities, the configuration settings below are unique to this activity type.

Branch Tab

The Branch tab determines where the activity goes, as specified by the “Branch Type” dropdown. The Branch can either roll back to the activity on which it depends or start or jump to a new activity. Jumping to a new activity skips all the activities in between; they won't be started this process instance. Starting a new activity allows the steps in between to start as they normally would.
