CategoryTasks and processes

March 2023

Since the last release of d.velop process studio at the beginning of March, the new configuration area is automatically used for configuring newly created processes.

The new configuration area allows you to create processes even more easily and intuitively. In the process model, depending on which item you have selected, the configuration of the respective item is displayed. For already existing processes, the existing configuration area is still displayed.

Learn more about the features of the new configuration area below:

Creating process variables

You can now create, edit, and remove process variables at the process level. In the creation and editing dialog the possible types and further configuration options are offered.

Using process variables in the process

You will find created process variables in the process e.g. in user steps and you can select the process variables there directly. You can also use the process variables in input fields, such as the task description, in the continuous text. The variable selection is automatically opened in the continuous text when you enter the left curly bracket ({). You can select the respective variable directly from the selection list.

Creating and using services

You can define a service at the process level and then use it in the process at the necessary places. After a service has been created at the process level, you can add input parameters and output parameters. When you select a service in the process, the input parameters defined as mandatory are automatically added in the input mapping. You can assign values directly to the input parameters. You can manually add optional input parameters and the necessary output parameters.

Using forms in user steps

In user steps, you can select an existing d.velop forms form in the Form area. If necessary, you can also create a new form for this process directly in the form selector. The form is created in the background and can be designed later. If a d.velop forms form is configured in a user step, the information about the existing process variables and the document (if available) will be given directly to this form when calling the form via a task. The form can load the process data and document data automatically when the form is opened.

Configuring possible actions in the user tasks

The Multiple selection function in task management allows you to control whether, for example, a task may also be forwarded as part of a multiple selection without having to call up the details of this task. You can now also perform this configuration directly on the user step. If it is not possible to complete the task in the task details and in the task list, it is mandatory to configure a form that must then be used to complete the task.

Configuring conditions

When using conditional branching, you can now directly access the variable selection with the left curly bracket ({) and use the variables in the conditions.
