Getting Started with Process View
After data upload, the Process view page opens that consists of 2 separate schema views and an interactive board:
- Primary path view
A graph that shows the most common events' order. You can overlay other frequently occurring paths to the graph display to see how they deviate from the primary path.
Examine Primary path view
The first time you see Primary path view, it shows the most frequent and common process path that was found in your data. It is always marked orange on the graph.
As you don't have any created boards at this step, you will see Default board on the right. It shows set statistics for the graph displayed. For example, you can see how many timelines the TOP 1 path includes. Move the slider at the bottom to TOP 2. Now schema shows the first and the second frequently found workflows. The new transition and nodes appear that differ TOP 2 path from TOP 1 path. Also, the statistics on the board show values for both TOP 1 and TOP 2 paths. You can create a filter for this combination by clicking Apply near the schema. Proceed with discovering these timelines using any of the built-in analysis tools.

Primary Path View
- Milestone view
An adjustable schema that can be formed automatically or configured manually. It allows creating the workflow you want to examine and explore overview statistics for the current timeline set selected at the top pane.
Configure and discover Milestone view
Milestone schema is created by a user, so its side is empty in new projects. The program prompts you to create your first schema using Schema wizard:
- Select Milestone view in the drop-down in the top right corner menu of the Process view page.
- Click Schema wizard.
- Click Select default milestones, then Generate schema.
The program analyzes the uploaded timelines and selects events to build a schema. You can also manually configure it or add events to the schema.
For details, see How to create Milestone schema.
- Type the schema name in the top field.
- Click Save in the top right corner.
The transition thickness shows the number of timelines. The more timelines pass through a transition, the thicker its line is. Values near the nodes show the amount of every event that happens in the current timeline set. Some events can occur more than once during the process, so the node value displays the general number of occurrences.
Click to display the Schema configuration pane. You can animate the schema by clicking Play to see how the process goes through nodes. Click Pause and then the bubble representing the timeline. For example, this way you can explore red bubbles moving through the process slowly. These could be the possible bottlenecks. Discover parts of the process that include a lot of red bubbles using built-in analysis tools.
On the default board, there are values for the current timeline set selected at the top pane.
For more details, see Milestone View.
- Boards with Tiles
A Board is a configurable workspace where you can add various Tiles to fit different analysis purposes. Tiles can contain set statistics, view-related data, charts based on user-defined metrics, and dimensions represented with pie and bar charts.
Dealing with Default board
The program creates timelines for extracted processes from the uploaded data. When the project opens, Default board with a number of preset statistics displays on the right:
- First Events
Shows First events and the percentage of their occurrence in the current set of timelines, or the number of deviations displayed if you are in Primary path view.
For example, click to open the First event chart. Select pie(s) and click Apply to create a selection for timelines that start with these event(s).
- Last Events
Shows Last events and the percentage of their occurrence in the current set of timelines, or the number of deviations displayed if you are Primary path view.
- Count of timelines
Shows the number of timelines in the current set. In Primary path view, it displays the number of timelines according to the current schema configuration.
- Time range
Displays the time gap between the earliest and the latest timestamps of timelines in the current set, or the number of deviations displayed if you are in Primary path view.
- Timelines over time
General chart that displays the distribution of the number of timelines in time. You can select an interval and a rule for adding timelines, by the elements they contain.
For example, click any bar on the chart to create a selection based on belonging to a certain time period. The program updates Primary path view and other tiles straight away and shows statistics only for these timelines.
When you change the number of deviations for Primary path view, the board statistics are updated on the fly to fit TOP paths selected.
You can adapt boards and tiles display by resizing them and create a custom board and tiles to fill up the created workspace with different data. To configure custom statistics, use charts and metrics. For example, create a sample tile showing the average number of events for timelines in focus.
For more details, see Board.
