About Process Workspaces

What's a Process Workspace?

A Process Workspace is where all Business Miner content is stored. It’s also where you can collaborate with colleagues. As each Process Workspace is linked to a specific business process type, your organization will likely have multiple Process Workspaces for each of its process types. You’ll only be able to see the Process Workspaces you’ve got access to though.

What's stored in a Process Workspace?

A Process Workspace contains Process Explorations and any Insights about those Process Explorations. A single Process Workspace could contain multiple different Process Explorations and Insights created by anyone with access to that Process Workspace.


Accessing a Process Workspace

Just sign in to EMS and click explore_icon.png on the left of your screen to see any Process Workspaces you’ve got access to. You can also start creating your own Process Workspaces from here.

Or if a colleague wants to collaborate by sharing a Process Workspace or Insight with you, you’ll get an email with a link that’ll take you straight to the right place.

Creating a Process Workspace

There are a couple of steps you need to follow when you create a Process Workspace. Don’t worry though, we'll lead you through them so it’s all as painless as possible. As soon as you’ve created a Process Workspace, you can start exploring your processes.

Data Models and Process Workspaces

Your organization’s process data is stored in structured tables called Data Models. When you create a Process Workspace, you need to select a Data Model so Business Miner knows which process data to use.

To make things a bit easier, you’ll only be able to select Data Models that are relevant to your specific process type.

If more than one Data Model is available and you’re not sure which to pick, just go ahead and choose one. You can quickly preview the data before going any further. If it doesn’t look quite right, you can cancel and try another Data Model. If you’re still not sure, your admin will be able to help.


To help keep your organization’s data safe, Data Models are permissioned. You'll need Use Data Model permissions for at least one Data Model if you want to create a Process Workspace.

If you don’t have the right permissions, you’ll get an error message when you try to create a Process Workspace. Contact your admin if your permissions need to be updated.

(If you’re just sharing a Process Workspace with someone else or a Process Workspace is shared with you, you don’t need to worry about Data Models or permissions.)

Sharing a Process Workspace

You may be invited to share a Process Workspace set up by someone else or want to invite other people to share a Process Workspace you’ve created. Once you’ve got access to a Process Workspace, you’ll be able to access everything in that Process Workspace. If you then invite other people to share that Process Workspace, they’ll be able to access everything in it too.


When you share a Process Workspace, you're sharing everything in that Process Workspace too. Don't worry about permissions though. We take care of them behind the scenes to give you and your colleagues a seamless experience.
