It is collection of step(s) organised into the several group(s). Step can be either data step that holds input or output files and other input data and action steps. Action steps are system designed steps that can be used to perform different type of actions such as manipulate a file, validate input data, send notification and more. SolveXia has variety of action steps to perform different type of actions in the process. Process can be created from scratch and copied from another process.


Process-run is a snapshot also called read-only copy of the process. It can be created by either process designer, end user or by SolveXia system as part of the scheduled run of the process. Process-run cannot be created from scratch. User cannot amend the structure of the process-run. Many businesses require to keep the record each time process is run. Process-run is used to fulfil that requirement and allow businesses to keep t record of each run.
