The following article and video provides information on how Navvia saves the process diagrams created with the drag & drop interface.
One of the big differences between Navvia's "classic" process designer and the new "drag & drop" is that classic diagrams are created and rendered server side while the new drag & drop diagrams are created on you computer and then saved to the database on the server.
It is very important you are aware of how Navvia saves drag & drop diagrams so that you do not loose work.
There is also a set of screen shots and descriptions at the end of this article.
Saving your work:
You know when Navvia is saving your work whenever you see the "busy" indicator in the top right of the Drag & Drop menu bar. Tip: If you ever seem "locked out" check to see if the busy indicator is on.
NOTE: Navvia keeps track of what has changed and only saves the changes made to a diagram - this minimizes network traffic. Nothing gets saved if the diagram hasn't changed.
Navvia saves your diagram whenever:
Clicking on File > Save in the menu
- Clicking on save in the Toolbar
- AutoSave Settings: Go to Options > Autosave to set autosave on or off. Autosave can be set in increments of 1 minute, from 1-30 minutes.
Switching between or moving activities: Navvia will save your diagram whenever you navigate between activities or re-sequence activities.
Navigating away from the flow diagram page: Whenever you navigate away from the flow diagram page AND you have un-saved work, Navvia will present the following dialog box. It's important you stay on the page and save your work.
