If you need, here’s a quick tutorial that will teach how to create a simple business process in SAP Build Process Automation:
You will need to create a Decision task, so here’s another tutorial specifically to show you how to do a decision:

Hi @dan_wroblewski ,
You are really altruistic about giving kudos to everyone but there is a SAP restriction to do it 😅 ..... in only one shot:
In the meantime, let's enjoy developing the new challenge.

My submission for week 5 is below. I also gave kudos to the previous weeks' posts that helped me achieve the missions. For this week, adding 'the Great' to the name was not straightforward.

@miyasuta It took a while for me to understand the format to put in the IF..ELSE part for text rule. The messages at the error console were not clear enough. The build App formulas have some examples to help. Wish we had similar here for process automation.

I agree with you about the helpfulness of the help inside the formula editor, and we should have such things all throughout.
The Decision step is a little tricky and it also took me a while to understand what was going on (I still have trouble sometimes). Thanks for completing 😺

Here's my week 5 submission. It's great to learn from this challenge series. Thank you very much!

Hi Dan, as the steps are not dependent and can be executed in parallel, I put those on the branch. I did try the serial one first, then decided to go ahead with parallel branches.

Hi @dan_wroblewski ,
Thank you for all the challenges!
I've learned some new things from these challenges and expect more from this community.
Here is my output,

Both the decision steps are independent and can be executed parallelly. So I thought Branch would be suitable for this scenario.

Great workflow challenge!

Hi @dan_wroblewski ,
Was just trying out Branch and Merge method instead of direct line flow .

Instructive challenge, great way to understand data type usage

And the last part is over, thanks for the challenge, looking forward to the new one.
In the decision part for zodiacs, I used the "Text Rule" for the decision and it was a bit difficult to identify all zodiacs, I think it would be more effective if it was possible to use like SAP Build App.
At first I didn't use the branches, but then I thought it would be more user-friendly and I did.

thanks for the last challenge.
"the Great" part was a bit tricky for me, but finally I made it 🙂

Hi @dan_wroblewski !
Thank you for the challenge..
I was hoping a bonus task though 😢
Here it is my process (I couldn't take a picture with all the nodes straight 😅😞
Last form, apparently I am a sensitive person
Thank you again, I have gave kudos to all the posts I like as well.

Here is my submission for the challange :
Input Form :
Final Form with Trait :
Overall Process Flow :
One issue I found with the Decision table was with adding each row one-by-one, that was time consuming. So I tried to import an excel file with the Zodiac-Trait mapping, but that didn't work. probably my excel format was not correct, despite having only 2 columns in the excel sheet. it would be nice to have an example of import/export decision tables in the SAP help document.
05-03-2023 3:44 AM
I didn't think about providing an import file for the traits. But if you create the rule and then export, you will get the header information. And then I could give you the values that you can copy from my exported file.
I did not find any documentation on the format, but above you can see the format you get when exporting.

Thanks @dan_wroblewski for this last challenge 🙂
My process design is as below:
My input form looks as below:
and, here is my personality trait (much relevant for the past month 😉 )
05-03-2023 6:20 PM
Here is my submission.
Two decisions: "Determine personality" - determines personality trait and "Format name" - add at the end of your name the title "the Great".

I hope I am not late to the party. Was on holidays and travelling. Here is my submission
And this is the process
With this, I am done with all the 5 submissions. It was an interesting challenge and I had fun while doing completing the weekly task. Thanks Daniel for your effort in putting together this series.
