alternate path, Alternate Path
A set of actions that lead your business process to a resolution in a scenario that is different from a default, primary path. You create alternate paths when your business process might result in more than one outcome.

For example, in the process of hiring a new employee, a default path results in accepting a candidate. For better flexibility of your application, create an alternate path that the case follows after rejecting a candidate. As a result, you ensure that your cases can be resolved in many dynamically changing scenarios.
