Split paths in Automations


Automations can get extremely complex when you need to send a subscriber down more than two "Yes/No" branches. To solve this problem, we have added split paths to condition nodes, allowing you to have more than two branches per condition based on a custom field or a tag. This will significantly simplify and shorten your Automations!
