The action hub


See also: How to run actions when a condition is met

The action hub is an action used to bring more than one arrow together and then continue the action sequence from there. It sounds complicated but it is much easier to understand than it seems. Take a look at the following screenshot:

  As you can see, instead of creating two sets of “Save to Excel” and “Send report” we have used the action hub to bring the arrows from the parsers together. This is especially useful if you use multiple filters and multiple parsers but you can also use it in other cases like a decision tree as it is shown in the following example:

  This way we are saving to the Excel file the gathered information if any of the two conditions are met. We could also do the same duplicating the Excel action and placing it below each Send email action. The behavior would be very similar but this way we make the flow of arrows easier to follow and understand. This is very useful (and may be a must) when you not only have two conditions but dozens of them.
