Configuring complex processes


Only available versions of this content are shown in the dropdown

To reach your business goals and solve cases that require additional processing, configure complex processes.

For example, you can define different paths a process can follow after a decision point. You can also create subprocesses to support additional work that your case requires.
  • Creating a stand-alone process

    Create a stand-alone process, or flow, to support or supplement the steps in a case life cycle. By creating a process outside the context of a case life cycle, you can reuse the process in other cases.

  • Changing the path of a process

    You can change the path of a process, or flow, to support out-of-sequence events. By adding different structures to your flow, such as loops and branches, you can improve the flexibility of the cases that you create.

  • Subprocesses

    A subprocess, also called a subflow, is a flow that is called by another flow. You can create a subprocess by adding a step to a process in the life cycle of a case or by adding specific shapes to a flow diagram. Subprocesses modularize the events in the life cycle of a case.

  • About Flow Actions

    A flow action controls how users interact with user forms to complete assignments. After selecting one flow action, users may fill in a section of the form to complete (perform) the assignment.
