    • Enter the value.
    • Click Select values, and then select the value.
    For example: Status work is equal to Done
  6. Optional: To configure advanced conditions, press the Down arrow button, and then select a condition from the list.
  7. Click Submit.
  8. Optional: Develop the rule by clicking Actions, and then performing one of the following procedures:
    • To update the condition, click Edit.
    • To add another condition, click Insert condition.
