Symbol Legend

I would like to create a legend of elements in my process diagrams to share with my business users with descriptions that are unique to my business.It would be excellent if I could start with a word document that has the contents of the BPMN quick reference guide.

Dear Jack,

If you wish to include this type of legend in your .bpm process itself, we kindly invite you to download and take a look at our "Creating a process documentation portal with Bizagi" .bpm example from our webinars (available here).

For instance and with this approach, you may choose to include custom artifacts and your shapes as legend for your model.

If you wish to include this type of information in your process documentation (e.g. a word document), then we suggest you customize your word template for publishing your documentation with additional information.

Best regards,

Thank you Daisuke

But I must admit that your solution provides me a way to solve the easy part of the problem after I have manually done the hard work.

I have not created any custom artifacts or shapes, but if I want to create a business user friendly legend I need to

  • create a process with all the shapes in the out of the box modeler
  • publish that process to Word
  • Copy the shapes into a table
  • copy the explanations you provide for the shapes from your documentation, and then "translate" them from the business process practitioner language in your documentation to business terminology

it is alot of work, but once that is done I can easily include that legend in any process I publish using standard MS office functionality, posting to a wiki, ...

Hi,this link is not working anymore: http://www.bizagi.com/?option=com_content&view=article&id=102&Itemid=109I tried to put a static page on my word template, but I think I do it in a wrong way. (Because my content is mixed up with the table of contents). Is there a video how I can do this, or can you describe how I can put some static informations at the end of my word template?Best RegardsPhilipp

Thx Juan,I understand how I can change the headers etc. but how can I put at the end of my template for example a page with some text? I copied BizagiTemplate.dot and tried to add a new page at the end with some text. But this is not working, because bizagi modeller use the last page for the table of content (or?). So what is the right way doing this?Best Regards

Dear Philipp,

Bizagi Modeler has two predefined templates for the user to choose from to generate Word documentation.

  • BizagiTemplate: this template contains Bizagi's logo, water marks and styles.
  • ModelerTemplate: this template has no water marks and uses standard fonts.

You can design and define your own template in Microsoft Office Word to be used when you generate your Word documentation.For further information: http://help.bizagi.com/processmodeler/en/index.html?where_to_share2.htm

Hello Juan,for example I take the BizagiTemplate (the template consist of 2 pages) and I add 5 blanc pages to the template and save it as a .dot file. After that I generate a Word document with Bizagi modeller. Bizagi is putting the table of content on the last page. Why? How can I change this.What is my goal?I want add a legend at the end of the template, but I don't know how, because of the problem which I've described. Do you understand?Regards

Dear Philipp,

Yes, I understand your question, however it is working correctly because into your .dot file should only work as template. You can modify default styles of the table of contents, modify the TOC1, TOC2, and TOC3 styles.
