MNI stands for multi-node instance. It's an easy way to have a process model node loop through a list or execute a set number of times. The most common use case is to use MNI when using the sub-process node. Imagine a user submits a list of SKU items to be processed. The user submits a list and then in the process model you use MNI to kick off another process for each item in the list.
A smaller use case could be using MNI on the 'Delete Document' node to quickly delete a list of documents.
Another use case I've been seeing regularly lately is sending emails to a list of user, tailored to them (their name in the subject or body, etc). In this situation the email node is run MNI over a list of users, sending one email per user.
Thank you so much for your reply
