A UET is a way to simplify being able to update data that comes from a DataLink or Integration. UETs also allow for
cleaner workflows with less branches and the ability to have lists of data that can be easily updated by a nontechnical
Consider a complex approval workflow where an expense report needs to be approved, by different people, based
on department and/or expense amount. This kind of workflow would consist of many branches, where each
branch is set to a department and then more branches after the department branch based on the expense amount
maximum. You can see how this workflow gets very wide and complicated quickly. Now consider that the
maximum expense amount changes or an approver changes. This poses a problem when you have many different
departments because you now have to edit many different workflow steps with the change. You can see how this
is tedious and prone to error. This is where UETs are useful; you can simplify your workflow and allow a nontechnical
user to be able to keep the approval data up to date.
