Red tokens on a simulation

Hello everybody,I've seen that in the video tutorial for Bizagi Process Modeler, to visualize a simulation, are always used red tokens (instead of numbers or the graphical bar). How can I use them too? Are they available for the free version too?Thank you very much,Luigi

Dear Luigi,

The second level of the simulation is useful in measuring end-to-end process time.Here, resources are not included; Bizagi assumes an infinite capacity to avoid delays in the process flow. This is the best case scenario under the given flow and processing times.

Over there, you can define a statistical distribution. Click the advanced icon alongside the field to view and select a distribution.

Once selected, you will be able to set the parameters of the distribution.

Ok, thank you for the hint but I was referring to another thing.

If you go here:

http://elearning.bizagi.com/course/view.php?id=18

you can see that in some video during the simulation are used certain red tokens to visually show the path of an instance during a process. It would be very useful if I could be able to make those red tokens appear on my simulation too, is there a way?

Thank you

Dear Luigi,

Please tell me full name of the video. I searched in the link, but there are many learning videos.

Thank you in advance

Dear Juan,

while searching for a "token visualization", I found this conversation. I'm looking for the same issue, Luigi was looking for, too. In many videos, Bizagi uses a red token to visualise the process flow. For presenting the process flow to people that are not very familiar with BPMN, this is a very good feature.

For instance, Bizagi used the red token in this video http://elearning.bizagi.com/mod/resource/view.php?id=477&redirect=1 (What is a parallel gateway, ~ 0:55 min).

Can I perform such a token simulation directly in Bizagy, too?

Many thanks in advance for your reply!
