Activate exclusive process editing


This feature is only available after the Admin activates it.


This is a fundamental change in the process modeling procedure!

This feature prevents multiple Authors from editing a Main or subprocess simultaneously.

In order to work on a process, the Author first clicks the blue button to Enable editing in the Toolbar of the Main Content. If another Author is currently editing the process, a warning message occurs; however, he can still take over. Of course, prior consultation with the colleague who is modeling the process is recommended.

Modelling: Exclusive process editing

As soon as the processing is completed, please click the blue button again, which has now changed to Disable editing. Otherwise, the process remains locked.

The process is read-only for the other authorized Users during this time. Assigned permissions for process modeling remain unaffected.
