To graphically design a process flow, you can now pull objects from the symbols menu into the editor.

For example, start with a pool and add a start event. You can directly rename it. When clicking on the start event, further possible follow-up symbol types are shown, with which you can continure modeling. The tool only shows feasible symbols.

4. Save and release a process


Click on the green Save button to the left of the symbols menu to save the process. Congratulations, you have modeled your first process!

The process model is now saved in your local workspace. To save it on the server and allow collaboration with other editors, you must upload it. This feature of BIC Cloud Design is called "Check in". Just click on the green symbol with a cloud. After checking-in, the diagram is saved on the server. If you later want to edit your diagram, you only need to check it out beforehand, by clicking on the green button with a pencil. When a diagram is checked out, it is inaccessible for editing by other users.
