Lookups are metadata which enable the application to provide lists of business descriptions to users when building filter criteria on columns containing only code values. Lookups make the process of creating filter criteria much easier so it is recommended that you set them up before creating rules, although they can be added at any time.
For example, Lookups could be set up to provide lists of Product Descriptions, Transaction Types, Customer Demographics, Countries, or other Geographic regions.
