Few of workflows has the following workflow elements

A manual decision will allow a user to select an option (manual) whereas conditional will make a decision based on some field value.

E.G. You can ask a user whether the a purchase requistion is required to go through approval or if it first needs to go to an RFQ. Business wise this decision may be less of a rigid process but is evaluated on a case by case basis.

Manual decision allow user to make decision and Conditional decision does not allow user to make decision.

Manual = User

Conditional = System

Ially,

A manual decision is exactly what it states, its a decision that can be made by a manually (by a person) rather than automatically (by the system). On your manual decision you can ask the user a question and define 2 outcomes which the user can select. You can then redirect the workflow based on what the user chooses. E.G. You can ask the user "Does this document need a quick approval process or a long approval process"  and provide the options of "Quick" and "Long" then based on what the user selects you can redirect the workflow to a longer approval process or a short process
