Bonjour Paul !

Here the distinction is actually between verbs that take "avoir" or "être" as auxiliary, but I agree that simple and complex are misleading.

I've therefore changed the titles to:

Après avoir fait = After doing (auxiliary avoir)
Après être allé = After going (auxiliary être)

Merci beaucoup de votre feedback et bonne journée !
