How order affects the execution of actions

SmartBuilder v3 or v4?

Please note that this is the help site for SmartBuilder version 3.

The SmartBuilder version 4 Documentation and Video Tutorials can be found in the Help menu in the tool, or view the v4 Help site.

Actions within the Action List are executed in order, so whatever you specify to happen at the top of the list will be executed before the events at the bottom of the list.

For example:

Scenario 1: You have two actions.  The first sets a variable X to True.  The second section executes an action only if the vraible X is True.  In this case, the action of the second section would be fired because the condition was met.

Scenario 2: You reverse the order of the two actions, and the action to set the variable to True is now second.  In this case, the first action would not fire because the required condition was not met -- the variable was still False.
