    Making the Switch from BPMN to ProcessPlan

    Moving from BPMN to ProcessPlan can be intimidating. There are no gateways, pools, swimlanes, or events! The transition could seem like you’re having to learn a new language. Luckily, ProcessPlan and BPMN have many commonalities that can help ease the transition....

    Enhancing Your Tasks

    ProcessPlan works like a decision tree that guides people through the tasks in a process. This works fine right out of the box, but ProcessPlan has several features that enhance tasks and make task completion easier. Let’s look at some of the ways you can enhance your tasks. All of these enhancers can be found by right clicking on a task and selecting settings or clicking the task you want to edit and then clicking the gear icon in the top corner of the screen....

For example, if you require a client to enter contact information at the beginning of a process, ProcessPlan will not allow the process to be started without that information and that data will be carried throughout the process....

    Failing to Plan is Planning to Fail

    A wise individual once said, “failing to plan is planning to fail”. I know it’s cliche, but this quote is true in life and in ProcessPlan.

Don’t worry about messing up because you can easily edit the process template if you come across a new step in the process or a more efficient way to do things. Think of this initial planning time as “helping out your future self”, as one of my coworkers puts it....
