Newbie, please help-3 conditions, contains

    I have a flow with almost two dozen (if, if,....else if)  after the first step.

    Im using scope condition to get there but having trouble wrapping my head around the solution.  is it a compose i can do earlier?  or just continue to use the condition scope?  

    My lack of knowledge I guess is the compose a function and create a variable?  I thought this was low code...sigh.

    Or should i just keep all those (else if 'contains' value) separate by using scope (by separating that third condition 'contains')...

    How much does it matter if i create a compose function to improve efficiency?

    Sorry if this seems trivial but can you consolidate a bunch of those ifs into a switch?   Build a variable set by the ifs in series always contining along with no real branching, then run switch against it at the end for the multiple outcomes?

    Can you please share a bit about what you're trying to achieve? This will likely make a difference in how to think about the solution...
