If an element is added from the "mouse over context menu", the element description must be added subsequently (except for the task) by double - clicking. That bothers the workflow. It would be better if the description could be entered directly after inserting the element without having to double-click the new element with the mouse. AND: a preference to turn this option on or off. 😘
We may user not publishing the latest revision when trying to us the approval workflow. Would be great if the workflow would automatically check if higher revision existed and prompt user before creating a new approval for the process owner to review and publish to Collaboration.

Creating a way to link words or passages of text from one term description to another glossary term would be extremely helpful. Both for the modeling and the portal user. Optimal would be automatic suggestions, analogous to the solution in the graphical process editor.
If I share the process with 5 people, 1st person comments on it on first day, then 2nd person comments on it the second day, but in the expanded view of the process, I can just see the total no. of comments. In this way I have to open the process everyday and check for the delta comments. It would be very helpful if in the expanded view I can see the task where the comment is made, by whom and what is the comment or the ...more »
At present, reminders, escalation and intermediate timer events only accept fixed values pre-configured in the workflow. If duration variables could be referenced (calculated from dates), the workflow would be more dynamic and responsive to the needs of the particular case. For example, I could capture a review deadline and automatically schedule a reminder or escalation based on this date i.e. the deadline minus one ...more »
While viewing a diagram in the Collaboration Hub there should be a link to take you directly to the corresponding folder in the Explorer with the diagram marked. This would make it much easier to navigate to the diagram in question, rather than searching through all of the diagrams in the Explorer to find the one you're looking for. Especially if you're unsure of which folder contains the diagram you're after.
When calling a diagram, which has been edited in the meantime you have to choose which version you want. Here it would be good to be able to open the revision comparison to look at the 2 versions and decide which one rejects.
There should also be the possibility in the QuickModel to use the gateways. Currently I know very few processes that run strictly in one direction.
In both the Collaboration Hub and the Process Manager we have the opportunity to configure the help menu and add additional links. A similar option for the QuickModel would be really helpful for our end users.
Since we work a lot with comment links for new processes, I would like to submit two suggestions for improvement: - A way to create comment links directly from the process or the Explorer, which you can then send yourself via his mail system. - A feature to re-send (or create) the link to people who have already been invited, as some people will get rid of the mail and ask me to re-submit links.
When I post a link to comment on multiple diagrams, the subject line is always "Sebastian Fochler invites you to comment on 2 diagrams" in the mail. I do not think that's good, because then you can not read on the subject of mail, which topic or process it is. It would be good if in the window that opens, if I invite someone to comment, in addition to the addressee and the mail text could also enter the subject.
Signavio's EPC template is still showing the traditional notation for EPC's. When importing an Aris EPC diagram into Signavio it is displayed in the old version of EPC instead of the newer version.
