Rule trigger order


Is there a simple way to re-order rules?


Hi Simmeon,

Yes you can reorder rules in create, if you go to the sibling tab for the rule you should be able to drag and drop the order of the related rules using the arrows on the left of each rule.

Hi Simmeon,

Yes, rules are ordered based on their respective Base Objects and Events that trigger them. However you can only re-order rules which match the two above conditions too.
To re-order these rules, view one of the rules and click on the Siblings tab.
This will allow you to re-order which rules should run and when against the Base Object and the Event, by dragging and dropping. When the rules execute, the rules will be executed from the top to the bottom of the list.

For example, let’s say you have four rules.
Rule 1 has a Base Object of A
Rule 2 has a Base Object of A
Rule 3 has a Base Object of A
Rule 4 has a Base Object of B

They are all triggered by the event Record Created.

The siblings tab will show you Rules 1, 2 and 3. But it will not show you Rule 4 because it has a different base object.

Hope this helps.
