Process Planner (english)

Thank you for taking the time helping us to improve DocuWare Process Planner.
If possible, please enter your ideas separated from each other.
This will help others to find existing ideas and us to work more focussed on them.

  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!

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  4. mail notification and versioning

    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.

  8. Updates of shared plans should trigger a notification to the email addresses the plan is shared with

    If a plan is shared with other user, and changes were made, there should be an option to inform the other users of the changes.

  9. Replicate Workflow Manager and Import / Export

    I think it would be more useful and efficient if it mirrored the steps available in workflow manager. (e.g. assign data) different types of steps could then be imported into workflow manager as a shell that could be further configured. Likewise, existing workflows could be exported as shells that could be tweaked and then imported into other DocuWare instances for further configuration. The ability to copy workflows within Process Planner would be nice to go along with this.
    Thanks!

  10. 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.

  12. I suggest the ability to add images and logos within the Process Planner

    It would be nice if there was the ability to add a customer logo to personalize the experience for our customers. Also if images could also be added into the diagram then this can assist with distinguishing and defining the solution clearer (such as cloud/on-premise, external applications, servers and firewalls etc).

  13. I suggest a snap-to-grid option

    This will allow for a more clear and concise diagram to be created faster. Specifically I encounter this in sizing comment boxes horizontally

  15. Ability to open more than one map at a time

    It would help productivity to being able to open more than one map at a time so that it' be easier to use the same phrases/wording across different maps for similar process steps.

  16. 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…

  17. Copy Link button should create an Edit link, not only a Read-Only link

    The Copy Link button currently copies a Read-Only link to the clipboard. Edit-capable users need to be entered one at a time and invited by the system. Those emails may go to spam. We would like to invite Edit users in our own email.

  18. categories should be a central setting, not just for the user

    It seems that each user a plan is shared with has to manage the categories separately. That is time consuming and not helpful if the categories are being used to inform other users of changes/updates to the plan.

  19. Category - No Category should be offered, too

    We have about 160 processes in the overview and working our way through categorising them all. It would be good to have a view for only the diagrams which have no category yet.
