Ruleflow
The Ruleflow tab contains information about the Vocabulary that is used by all Rulesheets, and other Ruleflows on the current Ruleflow canvas.
Rule Vocabulary
Use this field to change the Vocabulary referenced by this Ruleflow. Notice that the location of the Rule Vocabulary associated with the Ruleflow is automatically entered for you in the Rule Vocabulary field. You can change this value by selecting Browse and choosing a different Vocabulary, if necessary.
Major and Minor Version Numbers
Version numbers for Ruleflows are optional and are assigned manually. 
When different version numbers are assigned to a Ruleflow, the Server keeps them distinguished in memory, and responds correctly to requests for the different (Major) versions. In other words, an application or process can use (or call) different (Major) versions of the same Ruleflow simply by including the (Major) version number in the request message. The details of how this works at the Server level are described in the Server Integration & Deployment Guide.
Version Label
A plain-text description of this version can be added in the Ruleflow Version Label field.
Optional. Give the version a unique text label.
Effective Date and Expiration Date
Effective and Expiration dates are optional for Ruleflows and can be assigned singly or in pairs. When we use different Effective and Expiration dates to describe identically named Ruleflows, the Server keeps them straight in memory, and responds correctly to requests for the different dates. In other words, an application or process can use different versions of the same Ruleflow depending on date criteria. The details of how this works at the Server level are technical in nature and are described in the Server Integration & Deployment Guide.
Effective and Expiration Dates may be assigned using the same window as above. Clicking on the Effective Date or Expiration Date drop-down displays a calendar:

Once dates are set, you can specify the effective time on that specified date.
Total Number of Rules
Counts the total number of rules in all the Rulesheets included in this Ruleflow. For Column numbers 1 and higher, each enabled column is counted as one rule. For Column 0, each enabled Action row is counted as one rule.
