- [Voiceover] In this video, you'll learn about…Conditional Build Tag concepts.…A condition is a category for content,…and a Build Tag is the marker that indicates the category…in which a piece of content or a control file belongs.…Content, or project elements, can have a Build Tag…assigned to them or not.…If they don't have a Build Tag, like this topic…and this topic, they're always used.…
If some material does have a Build Tag assigned to it,…you can control whether or not that material…is used in a particular output, included or excluded.…So for example, if I want to generate Output A…I'll tell Flare, give me those two topics that had no labels…and then give me all the topics that were labeled A.…If I want to generate Output B,…similar, those two topics that were not labeled get included…and then all the topics that are labeled B get included.…
This makes Conditionality one of the core features…behind single sourcing, because this allows you…to have one Project that contains material.…It could be topics, it could be images,…
