Definitions of terms


I would like to learn how to use KM more often.

However, I don’t know the meaning of the Variables, Tokens, and Conditions.

For example, there is an action called Prompt for user input and there are Tokens and Variables to choose from; I don’t know the meaning of these.

The same goes for Conditions which are found in in the If all conditions are met action; I don’t know what the conditions mean.

How about definitions on the Wiki?

Thanks for your support,

The wiki is the best place for describing all of these:

Here’s some good tutorial videos:

Thank you Peter and Dan for your timely support!
