I need to deploy a process globally, across different timezones and currencies

How should the server topology look like to deploy a process across different time zones and currencies ?

For the users in a certain location to work in their own business hours (and record case events correctly for their time zone) and also to see the currency attributes in their local currency, should they have a Bizagi installation locally, configured for their locale ? perhaps also their local language ?

How can I then consolidate local process performance data and case information (amounts) in a central Bizagi installation that is configured for the time zone of group headquarters and group currency ?

Thanks for any information you can provide,

Best Regards,JohMut

Dear Johan,

You are talking about Business Configuration. Business Configuration determines the settings for the way currency, dates and times are displayed in the Work Portal.

In the Business Configuration menu the user will find three main groups of options to change the Project's settings.

  • Localization: This group of options allows the administration of the regional configuration for the Bizagi project, including culture, date, time and currency format.
  • Notifications: You can customize the body of automatic notifications messages in order to include the desired information.
  • Advanced: This group of options allows the configuration of the general display parameters for the Bizagi project.

Thanks Juan for your reply, I have read the article on Business Configuration. Still I have some questions:

Imagine I have a global repository of common processes in a Development Bizagi Enterprise Environment. Then I want to deploy selected processes to different parts of our organization (different regions, time zones, currency)

Since the settings in 'Business Configuration' are valid for the entire 'Work Portal', I believe I need a Test and a Production environment for each combination of Time Zone and Currency or ?

Or can I use one global Test and Production environment where each User (Group) can have a different time zone and currency setting ?

Dear Johan,

Language is not a problem, you can set the language up for each user. Also, you can set the time zone and Working Time Schema.The Work Portal will be displayed in the Default language defined in the Global Culture for the project. If multiple languages are enabled, end users can choose individually the language to display in their Work Portal. The chosen language needs to be selected from the Work Portal Preferences.Please check these articles:

Thanks Juan,

Just wondering about Currency then ? Can you setup a central work portal with the Enterprise Currency and then have local users enter the amounts in local Currency ? Of course there would have to be an exchange rate master data table to be maintained somewhere then or ?

Thanks and Best Regards, Johan

Dear Johan,

No. It is not possible. You need to implement Currency through process level. You need to add into your workflow an entity called Currency.
