Tip for making a Flow easier to read and author

This tip is if you have one logical path in your flow, and also have an “if” statement somewhere. If you are running if/else branches of actions, it won’t help you much.

The following flow has two conditions. If something A, then tweet, and if also something B, tweet some more.

I however find it quickly messy to write a lot of steps inside the “Yes” branches. Instead you can author the same flow with and empty “Yes” branch, and terminate in each “No” branch.

If you then rename your conditions to something useful and collapse them, the flow is much easier to read and author in my opinion.
