How do I unlink a created condition in a flow?

Hello, 

I have created a flow but it seems that when I add a condition, it links to the previous condition. How do I unlink it? 

So I have an existing condition named Finance and then I want to add another condition named Marketing. However, I do not want Marketing to link to Finance. Unfortunately, when I click on "Add an Action" under Finance, it automatically shows an arrow down linking to Marketing. I do not want that to happen because Marketing is not a pre-requisite condition for Finance. But everytime i click Add an Action, the linking happens. Appreciate the help. thanks!

Hi @CatPagulayan,

 

Flow is a tool for building sequential flows, which means that you can create a sequence of steps that execute one after another. So it is default that an action/condition will be added automatically after the previous action/condition.

About your scenario, I assume that parallel branch will be working for you. By using parallel steps, you can have two or more steps that run at the same time.

I have made a flow likes below, hope it could be your reference.

Hi Mabel, Thanks but it does not solve my problem still 😞 The person who was able to do it already left the company and nobody was there watching when he did it.. So what we want is to add another condition without linking to any other condition..

Hi @CatPagulayan,

 

Thanks for providing more info.

Will the condition be abandoned?

Or you just want to add another one in the flow?

Please share more details on the flow and your scenario so that I could help figure out a flow for you.

In addition, it is not possible to add another condition without linking to any other conditions.

 

Best regards,

Ohh but yes, that is what I wish to happen to add another condition in that YES scope without it linking to any previous or next condition. It was done previously by someone who left already. I was able to ask someone as well and she mentions it is due to the UI and unfortunately cannot be done anymore.. I just cannot paste another picture here, I cannot find an attachment portion but there are conditions in that YES box that are not connected to a previous or next condition.

By the way, I have attached how the other conditions looked like. Hope you can help. If you can see, the ETS, Finance are not linking to any condition. That is what I want to do (unlike the marketing one).

Hi @CatPagulayan,

 

Thanks for providing the screenshot.

I haven’t seen such an unlinked condition so far. As I mentioned before, Flow is a tool for building sequential flows, so it is not possible to create a flow with steps that not linking to the previous one.

From the screenshot you provided, I guess that all the conditions won’t affect each other. So if the condition “Customer Development” doesn’t match its condition, it will just move on to the “Marketing-Media”.

A simple flow likes below, Condition and Condition2 are false, so it moves to Condition3 which works as expected.
