I am very new to Appian and i am going through some of the courses, which i think are very helpful.
I am reading and learning about CDT and Record Type. They look similar to me but i am sure there is something that i am missing. When would you use one vs another (example)? Appreciate your help and comments as i navigate and learn Appian.

The other explanations are great, but I also have a quick rule of thumb:
