The menu bar is located on the left edge of the screen and can be collapsed for a larger view of the process. Below is the language switcher.
The cockpit and the associated possibility of personalizing the WebModel is only visible in the menu bar if there is a connection to an Active Directory.
Processes, Information Objects, Areas
Clicking on one of these buttons opens the navigation window for the viflow main objects. Here you can choose between a structure and folder view.
The most important view is the structure view of the processes, with which you can navigate through the entire process model and in which you can see a hierarchical process tree that you are familiar with from modeling in viflow.
Clicking on the Processes, Information Object or Areas button again closes the navigation window. Process graphics are then displayed on the entire page and you can also navigate through the entire model within this graphic view.
All further information can be found under ››› Navigation in the WebModel
Click on the History button to view all history entries of the entire process model.
The entries under Object versions are clickable and open the History in the properties of the respective object.
Click on Hyperlinks in the menu to call up the three hyperlinks (or email addresses) specified when ››› Export as WebModel .
Here you can select and set the interface and content language (also different) of the WebModel.
These settings are only valid for you, not for other viewers of the WebModel. Otherwise, use the buttons at the bottom left below the menu bar to switch languages (German <> English).
Define here which information, tabs or widgets are visible for all users of the WebModel or individually selectable (cockpit).
Clicking on the Help button opens this help, which explains the basics and navigation in the WebModel.
