After clicking on the Window button in the View menu, the following windows for entering and maintaining the data of the process model are offered to you. Each element clicked here is opened in a separate window in which further processing can take place.
A tick in front of the individual entries shows which windows are currently open.
If you want to edit several objects in the list, we recommend the overview, which summarizes all data in one window (see below).
Overview – an important tool
In the Overview window, all objects, properties, details, types in your process model - in short: all data relating to the process model - are listed in one window (!). By opening the individual folders and using the context menu  you can edit, assign, move and delete the data and objects of the process model - just as you know it from Windows Explorer.
Editing elements in the overview is basically the same. However, there are special features when maintaining and displaying some elements, which you can find in the table below.
Context menu of list items
The context menu  always contains the same elements, which can be active or inactive (grey font), depending on the selected object. In the context menu of the viflow main objects (processes, information, areas) you will also find the option (Graphic) Open and Reports.
Editing the list elements or objects
Double click [ ] on an item (object or folder), its properties are displayed in the properties window. Depending on the type of object, you can enter, change or delete various properties such as name, comment or abbreviation here.
Add an item
Right-click  on the object and select the New entry. For some object types you can also create new folders in the list, in which other elements can then be inserted.
Delete an item
Right-click  on the object and select the Delete entry.
Process Explorer in the Overview
Under Processes you can see the Explorer view, which largely corresponds to the ››› Processes window. However, the following additional information is also displayed here.
Using the Recycle Bin
Deleted items are first moved to the recycle bin . If you want to permanently delete the items, right-click Recycle Bin and select Empty Recycle Bin.
If you do not want to delete an element after all, click on Restore in the context menu of the corresponding element.
