Action Editor > Connect/Add branching actions and conditions

The action editor is the most powerful feature of glide. It’s one limitation is that conditions are only allowed at the root level. Would love the feature to check one condition, make one change (like an increment or set column) and then continue the workflow/path contained in a separate condition. Kind of hard to explain in words. Watch the video below to see what I mean.

@Jeff_Hager also mentions a version of this issue in the third bullet point of a recent post below:


This would be great :+1:

Oops i asked for the same thing but didn’t know it was there :wink:
It’s a bummer and would be great among other things to erase a column for exemple whole or partial.

Have you noticed that an If Then without an else in Actions acts like a Visibility Condition for a Component? Not sure if this is a bug or feature?! :laughing:

How might multiple If Thens in Actions impact Visibility?

I’m guessing if there is not a current matching path for a component (button) to fall through, then it just won’t display the component because it wouldn’t do anything anyway??? I’ve seen other posts where people have have components disappear. Possibly due to an empty relation or something that would prevent all the actions from running through a particular path.
