# What to use the Jump to another step step for
The jump step is used to create simple loops or to skip steps that you do not want to execute. It works well will in conjuction with the Conditional jump step.
We use the jump step as part of a technique called batching. This involves looping through steps using a jump step. For example, we start by reading a single row from a Google Sheet; we execute automation using that row's data. Then, we delete the row before moving on to read a new row.
