Under Consideration

How do I change new file defaults to always include a set of extended attributes?

I need to collaborate across an organization that has a standard set of extended attributes for tasks, events, gateways, and 10 custom artifact types. I am able to import the custom artifacts so they are available every time BizAGI Process Modeler is used.

In the case of extended attributes, I have an import file available, but when the extended attributes are imported, it only changes extended attributes in the current file. I want every new file that is created to use this set of extended attributes.

How do I change the default new file and default new collaboration file to include these company standard extended attributes for every file created in BizAGI?

Dear Matthew,

Thank you for your interest in Bizagi.

For your described scenario, you would need to have your users first import the extended attributes (there is no current option to include them automatically in a new file).

The same will apply for custom artifacts, which are stored per Process Modeler installation user (meaning that your users in different machines will need to import them as well).

Best regards,

How to import / export the extended attributes ?

It is easy with custom artifacts but I don't see this option.

Dear Zanelli,

To import/export extended attributes, use the options at the Export/Import tab in the ribbon.

Further information about these options, at http://help.bizagi.com/processmodeler/en/index.html?exporting_importing_attributes_between_models.htm.

Best regards,

I have the same issue - is this something that can be raised as a possible software enhancement to allow setting of attribute sharing across users?

Dear Tracy and users,

Indeed we will move this topic into the improvement ideas section.

In this way, these suggestions would be analyzed for a future release.

Dear all,

both of the above mentioned solutions helped me a lot. But still one aspect of "standard settings" seems missing in my case: We want every user to start with

  • a standad set of extended attributes >> Workaround (export/import) available as described above
  • a standard set of custom artifacts >> Workaround (export/import) available as described above
  • standard default settings for symbol formatting and font sizes (as accessable via File > Settings > General > Settings of BPMN-elements) >> Solution missing!!!

Is there any possible way to provide all BIZAGI users within our organization with a standard set of above mentioned settings?With best regards
