What are Conditions in Maze?
Conditions, is a way to apply logical routes from actions made during the test. If the outcome of a mission block is that the tester completed the Mission indirectly then you can route them to a specific question, or if a tester rates a question on your Opinion Scale block at a certain range, you can direct them to a different block based on their answer.

Example
Were the introduction screens clear?
1 = Confusing
10 = Super Clear

If the user chose Super Clear, then they can be directed to the end of the test.
If the user chose Confusing, then they can be asked additional questions.

What are the options for each block?
Where Conditions are available for blocks, they all have the same core options which allow you to route testers either to the next block, or to a specific block.

Mission
If the tester triggered any of the following behaviours:

Gave up
Succeeded directly
Succeeded indirectly
Took a specific path
Misclicked

Yes/No
Depending on the answer, you can direct the tester to the next block or a specific block.

Opinion Scale
You can choose a range from the scale (numerical, stars, or Emoticons) where you want to set the condition. So, if your scale is set to 10 steps, you can choose any range between 1 - 10, if a tester scores between 1 - 3 you can set the resulting condition to route them to particular block, any testers between 4 - 6 to a different block, and so on.

Multiple Choice
Depending on the answer, you can direct the tester to the next block or a specific block.

Open Question
Here you're able to configure the Condition to look for text which either:
Contains
Is Exactly
Does not contain

and then direct the tester to the next block or a specific block.

There's also an option to configure an action called Otherwise which means, should the tester not trigger the conditions you specified, then either continue to the next block or a specific block.

Context
You can route testers to continue to the next block or a specific block.
