User Defined Edits

Edit criteria are "grouped" together and can be considered inclusively or exclusively with another group. Each group can have an unlimited number of criteria. It might sound complex - and that's because the logic and processing is - but considerable thought was given to the design to ensure that creating your own edits is simply selecting criteria from a list.
