Collaboration

Organizational process innovation is driven by many people: employees, customers, and suppliers. If you want to take advantage of your full innovation potential, you should include all these people in your process design. They do not need extensive training in modeling languages. The collaborative features of Signavio Process Manager will quickly enable them to contribute.

In Signavio Process Manager, there are several ways to enable collaborators to contribute to your business process and business decision landscape.

Fellow modelers in your workspace can by default edit and comment on all diagrams in the workspace’s Shared documents folder. You can also invite modelers to edit to call attention to a diagram. They can also preview diagrams in the Collaboration Hub, which also provides a reader-friendly diagram presentation, with its full screen view and detailed documentation.

Stakeholders who do not have access to your workspace can be invited to comment on diagrams. The modeler simply needs to send an invitation from the Explorer’s Share menu to grant access. For external persons, the link acts as a key to Collaboration Hub where unregistered stakeholders can see and comment on diagrams. Certificate-based Collaboration Hub users can additionally see all published diagrams of the corresponding workspace in the folder tree on the left. The stakeholders click a link they receive by email that allows them to see and comment on diagrams.

Exporting diagrams and sharing, saving or printing them is another collaborative option for modelers. This way, diagrams can be transferred between Signavio workspaces (SGX) and Signavio and other modeling softwares (BPMN 2.0 conform XML), saved locally, and sent by email (PDF, SVG or PNG) or printed out.

Embedding diagrams in websites or Microsoft SharePoint-based systems is another way of collaborating for more advanced users.

In the comments section, collaborators who are not deeply involved in the modeling process can leave comments to improve a diagram.
