FAQ : When should I use Step Routing vs. conditional logic?

            When thinking about creating a long task or training guide within Zaptic, a question on a lot of author's mind's is.. 

            Should I use Step Routing or Conditional Logic here?

            There are several ways to think about the difference between the two features so let's take a look at some real life examples below: 

            1) Let's think about a standard form you may be asked to fill in for your local council regarding household occupancy. 
            1. Typically a form is made up of multiple sections where each section has a group of questions (STEPS)
            2. In section 1 you may be asked about the occupants in your household. 
            3. In section 1, let's imagine question 1 is "Do you live alone?" (QUESTION)
            4. The next question may say "If No, how many people do you live with?" (CONDITIONAL LOGIC)
            5. There could also be brackets after question 1 saying "If Yes, please skip straight to Q6" (STEP ROUTING)

            2) Let's think about a dental form which you often fill out on registering with a dentist
            1. Typically a form is made up of multiple sections where each section has a group of questions (STEPS)
            2. In section 3 you may be asked about historical dental surgery 
            3. Let's say the first question in this section is "Have you ever had any dental surgery?" (QUESTION)
            4. The next question may say "If Yes, please give details below:" (CONDITIONAL LOGIC)
            5. There could also be some text in brackets after the question such as "If No, please skip straight onto section 5" (STEP ROUTING)
            3) Let's think about a standard Near Miss template at a busy factory
            1.  Typically a form is made up of multiple sections where each section has a group of questions (STEPS)
            2. In section 2 you may be asked about follow up actions 
            3. The question may read "Did you take any actions to prevent the near miss?" (QUESTION)
            4. The follow up question could say "If yes, please describe action taken:" (CONDITIONAL LOGIC)
            5. There could also be some text in brackets saying "If No, you have completed this near miss report" (STEP ROUTING - END FLOW)
