Setting Conditions for a Relationship

The Conditions property is a relationship-level property that lets you establish the condition rules under which a relationship is valid when two or more relationships are associated with a workflow stage. When multiple relationships exist for a workflow stage, one relationship is designated as the default relationship. The default relationship is considered valid when all other conditional relationships are invalid. The Conditions property cannot be applied to the default relationship.
