Sequence Activity Designer

 

The Sequence activity contains an ordered collection of child activities that it executes in order.

Another way to execute a set of activities in order is to use a Flowchart activity. Consider using the Flowchart when you have a simple branching or looping program flow that you want to model diagrammatically.

To add a Sequence activity, drag the Sequence activity designer from the Toolbox and drop it on to the Windows Workflow Designer surface. To add a child activity to this Sequence activity, drag some other activity from the Toolbox and drop it on the triangle in the box with the hint text “Drop activity here”.
