StoryTeller and repeater with a condition
With the advent of 5.6, the M3 Connectivity Pack comes highly into focus with the desire to move to StoryTeller for enriched output possibilities. There should be a lot happening in this space this year.

In some cases there is no help, as the work just has to be done, but sometimes another approach may lead to significantly better result.
