Force Alteryx to process each individual tool completely before moving to the next

Asteroid

I was wondering if it was possible to force Alteryx to process each individual tool completely (100%) before moving on to the next one? I need the process to terminate if any errors are found and not to process any of a file if any problems are found. I can see that I can set the Runtime properties to "limit the conversion errors" to 1, "stop processing when limit is reached" and "cancel running workflow on error" but it looks like the processing begins on multiple tools simultaneously and I was wondering if it was possible that some records would be completely processed before an error in the file was found? Thanks for your help in advance.

You can use the Block Until Done tool. The next tool in the workflow will only begin processing once the previous has finished.

Thanks for the quick response, I will test it out to see how it works.
