How exactly do you use the switch control variable?

Good morning, Looking at flow nodes, under the Input- and Output flow control sections, there's a slot for Switch Control Variable.

Re: Import Objects And Links From Spreadsheet

Splitting flow between a bank of tanks

Hi there, I'd like to split flow to a bank of tanks by filling them one by one from a single flow source. The first tank (any available tank) should be filled completely, as soon as this tank is filled the next tank available should be filled. The tanks should empty after a few hours and become avai...
