    Hi Tim,

    In one the next releases (v4.0 or v4.1) there will be significant improvements to our rules engine. 
    Rule dependancies will be one of those.

    So this more like AND logic for rules, right?

    If this1 AND this2 then that, right?

    I'd love to see that feature ! But I don't see it in 4.0 release.

    In 4.1 possible ?

    It would be really useful to have, but, alas, not in 4.1.

    It is planned for more distant future – 4.2 or later.

    As I've answered in other threads, we are working on this feature. The main reason it gets postponed is that it requires the whole engine to be re-written.

    For 4.2 we are preparing those internal engine changes. In the first step, we need to be sure that the new engine will work in
    all scenarios the same way as the old one (so we're performing lots of testing). Cause all existing systems have some set of rules, we need to migrate those existing rules in a new engine.

    After those steps are done we will start to implement UI parts, meaning that users will be able to create multiple-actions and
    multiple-events rules.

    We don't have any solid ETA, but I feel like in 4.2 we will roll out our new engine (so only a small amount of visible changes,
    but a lot of internal ones) and somewhere around 4.3 we will release new UI (see the mockups below).

    Probably we will add some flexibility in terms of using different even parameters in the actions in 4.2 (e.g. it will be possible to
    customize notifications using {resource.name} and so on). We believe that adding parameters will provide significant value to our users and it is asked a lot

    With regard to multiple-actions rules feature, I only have some early mockups that I can share. I'd appreciate it if you'd leave
    your feedback on it

    The rules view:

    Rule editor:

    You see that there is only "OR" now. This is the first step. We also plan to add "AND" logic and our new engine will allow this, but for the first version, it will be OR-only.

    Any word on this progressing? Seems that it has been left behind..... still something that we are waiting for.
