Cron Email - Multiple Conditions PHP

    I have been able to set up scheduled cron emails that work great when I only have one condition. This condition works:

    return '{issues___project}'=='Amistad Apartments';

    I am trying to do a second condition, but when I add && or AND to the condition, it doesn't work. Can someone help me with the proper syntax to add another condition? Here is an example of what I have tried:

    return '{issues___project}'=='Amistad Apartments' AND '{issues___status}'=='Open';

    Thanks so much.

    OK - as is the magic of the forum, as soon as I posted it, I found a string that worked. For others browsing through, here it is:

    return '{issues___status_raw}'=='Open' AND '{issues___project}'=='Amistad Apartments';

    The "raw" string seemed to help.

    Use && rather than AND. They are almost the same, but not quite, and if you routinely use AND you will at some point get bitten by the difference. Always best to use && for simple boolean operations like that.

    The issue is operator precedence, see first answer ...
