Rules Overview

The Rules Editor are used to automate processes throughout Slate that relate to person records, application data, and more.

For processes that are being run repeatedly in your Slate instance, a rule can be configured to automate that function. For example, when repeatedly updating the Student Type field to the Freshman prompt based on the student’s entry term, creating a rule for that assignment would make strategic sense and create greater efficiency.

Resist the urge to immediately begin writing rules for every business process in your office! After developing a familiarity with Slate, processes and practices that may benefit from using the Rules Editor will become more apparent.
