IF branches reconnection

IF statements is a nice addition, but it is useless if the 2 branches created cannot be reconnected to continue a workflow. Otherwise it just forces us to duplicate all the common events in two branches, once the IF exception is passed...

It is about time this was a thing. I think this is a brilliant idea. We use if/then branches that end up eventually making their way back to one another all the time. It would make workflows so much less muddled and take much less time to create if we could link branches of the workflows to one another.

+1 for this feature. Would make workflows so much better.

I would also like to vote for this feature. I'm planning a new workflow with various if/then splits and I would end up with more than 12 branches that are identical in large parts of the flow...

Yes please, I'm setting up territory assignment rules in HubSpot using workflows (of course there are lots of other use cases including nurture workflows) but essentially after each IF/THEN branch has set the territory field, I then have to call another workflow to do the actual assignment. It means that same step is repeated on every branch as opposed to reconnecting all of the branches back to a continuation branch and only having the step incliuded once. Pardot has this in their new Email Nurture workflows and it's a huge time saver that avoids multiple repeating steps e.g. only doing a resend to people who have not responded (used it for a GDPR compliance workflow).
