Doing more with Decisions

A Decision is almost identical to an Activity, so much so that Process Navigator lets you change from Activity to Decision and vice versa by right-clicking an Activity and selecting Decision. All of the capabilities of an Activity are also available for a Decision. See Doing More with Activities for a detailed description of these capabilities.

The Outputs from a Decision, however, are mutually exclusive, i.e. only one of the Outputs is produced, not all of them as with an Activity. Use Decisions sparingly. If the map you are drawing has a lot of decision points on it, a flowchart might be a better means of representing it.

To convert an Activity to a Decision, right-click the Activity and select Decision.
