Please note that a workflow model will only be made available for selection if deployed into the system.
When using the Workflow Designer, creating workflows is relatively simple. Users can begin by creating a workflow on the diagram by selecting an element from the diagram menu. This can be done via drag and drop.
The elements included in the diagram all match those of the BPMN 2.0 standard. For a description on applying the Diagram Menu elements in Workflow Designer, see Creating Diagrams [GL OG].
When working together with the Workflow Designer, users are able to directly configure the attributes of individual workflow elements on the diagram. This occurs in the Properties and Executions Menu. By selecting an empty space on the diagram, the menu will display general information for the workflow.
By selecting a particular element on the diagram, the menu will react dynamically and display that element's attributes.
For a description on specifying attributes, see Attributes and Tasks.
