Describing use case steps based on conditions 

Hi friends,

This might be silly, but I do not have much grip on use case concept. Below is the scenario and outcome. 

Objective - to delete a employee record.

1. User navigate to the page to locate employee

2. System displays all employee

3. Use choose the option to delete the desired employee

4. System displays a warning "Are you sure you want to delete this employee" ? - Here we have Yes / No. 

---- when Yes is selected, it would continue deletion and show the message.

-----When user select No - the activity gets aborted, and nothing happens. 

Can someone help me understand the steps here and structure them.

Thanks.

C

Re: Describing use case steps based on conditions 

Hi Cherie,

I'd probably write it something like you've put it there - its easier. 

Alternatively you could do something like this:

Main course - Delete employee

1. User navigate to the page to locate employee

2. System displays all employee

3. Use choose the option to delete the desired employee

4. System displays a warning "Are you sure you want to delete this employee"  and prompts user to select Yes or No. 

5. User selects Yes

6. System deletes employee

7. Use case ends

Alternate course - Abort deletion

after line 4 of the main course

1. User selects No

2. Use case ends
