Understanding the elements of control flow is an important aspect of successfully working with Hyland RPA Designer (former AM Composer). Control flow is a concept borrowed from computer science that refers to the order in which actions are performed in automation.

Proper control flow can be achieved through the intelligent use of variables and activities.

A complete list of these activities can be found in the Activities panel under Control.


These activities allow you to define rules and automate conditional statements within the project through if/else and for each statement or loops. A delay can also be added between actions in order to perfectly time the activities.

Loops represent an important part of automation as they enable users to easily check dependencies between variables, activities and conditions. Once created, the user can run a segment of the automation for a specific number of times, either until a condition is met or indefinitely.
