2 Workflow Designer Palette. A window that contains icons that represent the various step types you can add to a workflow process. To add a step to a workflow, you drag, then drop an object from the palette to the canvas. 3 Multi Value Property Window (MVPW). A window that allows you to define properties for a workflow process, and arguments for a step in a workflow. For more information, see “Multi Value Property Window” on page 50 . 4 Properties Window. A window that allows you to define properties for an individual step in a workflow process, or for the overall workflow. The window is context sensitive. If a step or connector is chosen in the canvas, then properties for the step or connector are displayed in the Properties window. If no step or connector is chosen in the canvas, then properties for the workflow process are displayed in the Properties window. For more information, see “Overview of Workflow Process Steps” on page 65 . Functionality of the Process Designer You use the Process Designer in Siebel Tools to build your workflow process. The following work can be performed in the Process Designer: Copy and paste. Copy and paste objects in the canvas of the Workflow Designer as you are building the workflow process. Edit shape properties and layout. Define shape colors and other attributes, such as the look of the line, the fill pattern, and the font for labels. Establish consistency by controlling alignment of shapes and by making shapes the same size as other shapes in the workflow process. Zoom. Zoom in and out on the canvas of the Process Designer in order to view the workflow process at various magnifications. Copy drawings. Copy a workflow process into another application, such as a Microsoft Word document. In the canvas, you right-click, then choose Copy Drawing. Print. Print the workflow process. Hide connector and error exception connector names. You can choose to hide the names of connectors and error exception connectors within a workflow process. Hiding a connector name can be helpful in order to clarify the meaning of conditional branching that emanates from a start step or a decision point. The copy and paste functionality works the same as with a typical Windows applications. For example, by using the CTRL+C and CTRL+V keyboard combinations. Other functionality is employed by right-clicking the canvas of the Process Designer.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
