Sentence Variants can now be deactivated

(peter.schmitt) #1

By deactivating a statement variant, the engine is prevented from using it when creating a text. That way, statement variants can be created without interrupting the normal function of a rule set.

Use Cases for Customers

Users can create statement variants. These need not to be selected directly for text productions, instead they can be kept as deactivated until they are needed.

This enables a division of labor, where one person creates the sentence variants and the other wires them and activates them for the usage. Hence, the rule set can always be kept in a productive state.
