  1. I suggest adding different shapes

    Flowcharts are comprised of decision, delay, hold, manual operation, inputs, document, etc step-shapes. These are missing and not every step of a process is a box-step.

    Also, embed options or a way to merge it directly to Docuware Workflow designer.

    Swimlanes look great! cheers!

    • I suggest adding a way to relate notes to tasks.

      Having a way to connect a note to a task to make it clear that it belongs to a particular task. Maybe a bubble attached to the task or having a collapsible note below the task.

      • I suggest a "save as" button, or the ability to save as template for similar workflows.

        I have three accounts with very similar scope and workflow. I want to use the last one as a template so I can save time building this.

        • I suggest a Copy function.

          Copy elements and/or copy the whole workflow. Maybe an export/ import?

              • Change color of arrows

                This would help to improve the differentiation within the process.

                • Adjustable size of steps

                  As for the notes i am expecting the same behavior for the steps. Adjust the size of steps would help differentiating and helps avoiding unnecessary word wrapping.

                  • Need for Start and End button is not necessary

                    There should be the possibility to delete these two items because I don´t need them in my process

                    • The ability to drag a step to a new location and have the connecting line auto adjust position to keep the layout clean

                      See a simple sample of what happens when you drag steps to a new location. The connecting lines get very confusing.

                      • Offer Possibility of Renaming Start and End Button

                        The labeling of the Start and End button doesn´t fit to some processes. It would be useful if there would a possibility to change the naming these items.

                              Activate an mail notification when a user edit the flow chart. Use different color to detect what change in the flow is done and who made the change.

                                  Right now the initial decision between steps does not allow for a description, also if you create additional decisions, you are not able to decide which decision has a text description etc.

                                    • I suggest to look from the Business and IT perspectives

                                      Diagram looks very nice from the perspective of business users and I think we are going to the right direction. Please consider additional simple features listed below, that can really improve usability and encourage companies to use this tool in practice.

                                      Business perspective:
                                      1. Adding simple Decision step which can show two types of flow: parrallel and alternatives
                                      2. Allowing the loops betweean single business process steps
                                      3. Three types of steps: User Activity, Decision Step and Interface Step ( showing intergations)
                                      4. Define users and groups of users
                                      5. Assigning users or a group of users to the User's…

                                      • Text handling of the Descriptions at Steps needs to be improved

                                        The space for more detailed information in the description box of a step is not enough. There should be offered a possibility to display the entire text and not just the abbreviated one.
