Overlapping flow step choices

Hi, I wonder if a Flow Step will execute correctly if choices have overlapping conditions.

Let's assume I have an integer field "A".

Choice 1 - A is less than 180
Choice 2 - A is less than 165
Choice 3 - A is less than 150
Choice 4 - A is less than 135
Choice 5 - A is less than 120

If A = 100, then logically it will qualify for all 5 choices. However when A is 100 I need it to go just through Choice 5 and not to go through choices 1-4. If A is 160, I need it to go through Choice 2 and not to go through Choice 1. Will it work like that?

Thanks!

Yes, that will work. I don't necessarily dislike that way of doing it... somewhat easier to read than [between] IMO.

Hi Olga Khadieva​,

Does the field not have the ability to add a between condition?

Hi Olga Khadieva​ - No, it won't work like that. The first matching choice would be considered. E.g. in your example, Choice 1. However it's a better idea to use between instead of is to avoid the overlapping conditions.

Hope this helps,

Re: Overlapping flow step choices

Hi Balkar and Gerard!

What if the choices are placed in the opposite order? For example,

Choice 1 - A is less than 120

Choice 2 - A is less than 135

Choice 3 - A is less than 150

Choice 4 - A is less than 165

Choice 5 - A is less than 180

Will this make a difference? A partner has setup this campaign for us and they are claiming it will work, but i wanted to get a 2nd opinion. i do agree with you that using "between" is more accurate than "less than"
