#Condition Rule #Milestone Rule #Pre-Condition Rule

Difference between pre-condition, condition and milestone rules

With release 5.8 of the DCR portal we introduced a new business rule, the pre-condition rule, which combined the condition and milestone rule into one common rule. For business people there is mostly no reason to distinct between these three different rules, so the pre-condition rule should be mostly used, where condition and milestone can mostly be ignored.
