# [General]Question about using the "and" for conditions and else for ITE functions

so for my trigger there is multiple conditions that need to be met for it to run, if i do not use the and thing for the conditions if only one of the needed conditions is met will it fire?

also, when using ITE functions if i want something to happen when the conditions are NOT met, can i just put it in the else sections?

here is my trigger, should i be using the and in the first ITE that needs 3 conditions, also in the Last ITE? (wich i will put into the else part of the first ITE if my second question is a yes)

When condition is not met in a ITE, it should automatically go into an Else because it is the opposite of Then.

See it this way: Then = Condition is met for If
Else = COnditon is not met for If

And if you use And for a condition, as what the name said, you should MET ALL CONDITON FOR IT TO RUN THE ACTIONS. For its opposite Or, even only one of the conditions you met, the action will run.

You can use And for the first And action but I think with your triggers If will work fine even without And. Because sometimes triggers even without And acts like one too.

The AND keyword indicates that all conditions must be met for the Then block to fire. Conversely, the OR keyword fires the Then block if any of the condition is met. That being said, you can put the code for the Else block accordingly and it will fire when the condition block returns a false (not met)

ahh ok i see, thanks for the answer. i know it was a pretty simple thing but i wasnt to sure.

turns out im going to have to use AND, i just tested it but the last actions of the last ITE into the else part of the first and it it fired the else anyways.
