It should be something like below: The way it is right now, I don't think the workflow even enters the "then email..." activity. Of course, you would want to place the second condition with an "else" statement, but with MSPaint I thought of keeping it simple.

Nope I don't believe so. If you have a set of actions that may repeat, you will basically have to add them each time after your condition. Yes this will cause a bit of 'duplicate code' but the workflows are more for non programmers so they set it up to be ran in order from step 1 to step 2 to step 3, etc. You could, however write the ...
