How to edit a process

Overview

This article will explain how to edit a process – which means adding and removing steps from a process. In order to edit a process you will first need to have a process to edit. You can either create a new process or open an existing process. Next, you will need to have “modify” permissions on a process. If you are the creator of the process, you will automatically have this permission. If this is a process created by someone else, you may need to check with them to make sure you have been granted the appropriate permissions in the system.

Steps

  • Open the process you want to edit.
  • Turn on design mode for this process. This is a simple a quick thing to do – you can read about this here.
  • Choose from the table below as to which action you want to perform and refer to one of the two diagrams below:
