Summary: Zibot Paths allows Flows to execute different Zibots based on one or more conditions.

Now there’s no more need to duplicate your flows, this new conditional Zibot helps you build multiple outcomes into one Flow, so you can automate anything you imagine.

It’s super easy to configure them, with our intuitive UI, you can select from a list of predefined data to create as many conditions as you require.
