Ability to nest rulesets

Idea ID 2758407

Ability to nest rulesets

To manage the various Rules in form rendering, would like the ability to control "sets" of rules via nesting.

ie. If << Condition AAA>> == TRUE
        THEN   << rule set 1 >>
                       << rule set 2 >>
                       << rule set 3 >>

       If << Condition BBB>> == TRUE
        THEN   << rule set 4 >>
                       << rule set 5 >>
                       << rule set 6 >>

This is something that I wished I could do at all of my customers so far.

It is very common that multiple things have to happen based on the same condition. Currently, one has to copy the conditional expression to every single rule, rendering things quickly very incomprehensible and difficult to maintain.

I would suggest to extend this to also include an ELSE clause, as almost always other things need to happen when the condition is FALSE

If << Condition AAA>> == TRUE

<< rule 1 >>
<< rule 2 >>
<< rule 3 >>


<< rule 4 >>
<< rule 5 >>
<< rule 6 >>

It would be helpful if we could add multiple fields in a rule instead of individually adding them.  eg

If <Condition A>

Hide <a>, <b>, <c> and so on.
