Element Levels

Process modeling is a dynamic process, which means functionality is important. Now, all the canvas elements can be sent to different levels, just like in MS Word or PowerPoint, for maximum design flexibility. This accessible, universal appeal will make it much easier to design complex processes in a simple and easy-to-understand way.

Dynamic Users

With the new update, you have the option to select multiple users to send tasks to. This makes workflows more dynamic, reducing the time spent on task management.

Customize MS Word Language Output

Language barriers are often present in companies that span the globe. Break down language barriers within organizations by exporting MS Word documents in any desired language.

Start Forms now have the same capabilities as forms within the workflow. Forms are now more flexible with no limit to one data item anymore, making them easier to configure, and allowing forms to fit your needs. You can also look up forms within the cascading navigation menu, allowing for more visibility. Design forms to fit perfectly into your processes with no restrictions.
