App Triggers allows you to add applications that trigger the VPN to connect when the application is launched. Use the application ID (either the application's package family name or file path) to select your applications.

Routes allow the networking stack to identify the traffic that needs to go over the VPN interface for a split tunnel VPN.

DNS Info collects information entered in its fields to send to the Name Resolution Policy Table (NRPT) which determines the DNS client behaviour when issuing queries and processing responses.

App Traffic specifies which traffic can be sent through the VPN interface. Only traffic matching a rule, is allowed through. If there are multiple rules, each rule operates on an OR basis with the other rules.
