Diagram Builder

You can build a diagram in two ways:

  1. Manually by using Create Diagram.
  2. Automatically by using Capture Process.

Use this diagram editor to create the structure of your process and define the specific actions to be performed.

The diagram begins with a Start node which is followed by Sequences and/or Decisions. The diagram leads to the End action. The sequences are linked with arrows to improve the process visualization.

At the bottom of the Diagram Builder window, you can:

  1. Zoom in and out of your diagram.
  2. Scale to 100% / Fit (your diagram) to screen.
  3. Drag the diagram by pressing Spacebar + clicking on Image.

On the left-hand corner of the screen, you can view an action counter allowing you to monitor the number of actions added to the sequence and an Information icon providing details about the limitation.

:notebook-with-decorative-cover: The number of actions that can be captured is set up to 500.
