Hi Elliot,
I don't think thats possible. The alternative would be to use an input switch and route the entity to an appropriate Entity Multicast sender blocks. That should do the trick.

This answer only works if the destination tag is known at compile time, not if it is determined dynamically at runtime.

Hi Elliot,
I think I don't understand your question well. I have attached a model based on what I understood. Where entity.type is determining the destination of the multicase receiver where it is routed to. If this is not what you mean, can you please elaborate a bit?

What I needed to do is different. Something like this:
Solution #1:
if (Entity.branch==1) TAG = TAG_A
else if (Entity.banch==2) TAG = TAG_B
Solution #2
TAG = Entity.Tag_String
