OutSystems Platform provides you with a specific editor to define the process flow of your processes. This editor is called the Process Flow Editor and is divided into the following areas:

The tools are elements that execute process activities, other processes or flow control tools. When a tool is dragged onto the Content Canvas, a new process activity in the process flow is created.

To see the properties of a process activity, select it on the Content Canvas and they'll be displayed in the Property window.

Defining the Flow

To define the flow of a process connect the elements on the Content Canvas starting in the Start element - only one Start element is allowed in a process flow. To finish a flow path use the End element - depending on the elements you are using in the process flow you can have a single or multiple paths.

In a process flow you are allowed to use other start tools to define alternative flows to handle specific events. Learn more About Other Start Tools.
