The Run Tool Steps

The Run Tool executes a sequence of steps. Steps are executed in the order they are listed and use a flow control system to decide whether a step is run.

The following page will cover the basics of steps in relation to the Run Tool and how to add and edit them in your project.

Add a Step

To add a step to your project either click onto the shortcut button Add Step or go to File > Add Step.

Then select the step type you want to add, enter in a name, and follow the configuration details on the specific step pages here to configure your step.

Edit a Step

If you need to edit your step once it has been created, simply double click onto it to open the configuration window.

If it is a Data Sync step, double clicking will open Data Sync so then you can configure your project.

Define the Order of Execution

You can change the running order by highlighting the step you wish to move and clicking the Move Up and Move Down buttons or by dragging the step to the position you want it to be at.

Running the Steps

Once you have all the steps you need and you are happy with the order they will run in, you can start the Run Tool project by clicking Run.
