Complex Program Requirements

Grouping courses and programs

Some requirements need to use groupings of courses or programs.

To build a rules group and sub rules, build the first rule and then choose from the ellipsis button.

Choose Create Group then click the + sign to add additional sub rules.

You may also use to group to sets of requirements where you are stating take this OR statement or that OR statement.

In a normal rule you can state completed 1 of the following list of courses, which is basically stating, “Completed this or that.”

Completed at least a number of courses from the list

If you are trying to build a rule that states a person can complete 1 course from a list of courses OR all (or 1) course(s) from another list of courses you will need to create a Rule Group and Sub rules and use the Group main drop down to choose, “Complete 1 of the following” while the overall rules statement states, “Complete ALL of the following.”

This is the edit/building mode of the grouping.

This is the final product of the grouping.
