Offline Modeler Collaboration


We all recognize the power of cloud and its unbeatable benefits, many of which are covered here. Yet the fact remains that sometimes and ind some places, you will experience connectivity problems. Whether that “someplace” is the plane or a client’s site, Bizagi's collaboration features mean your productivity will not suffer.

Offline working is available for each diagram individually. Select the diagrams you want to work on when you can’t find an internet connection. Immediately, Bizagi saves the designated diagrams to be available locally and locks them so other users will not be able to edit them.

For both Workgroup and Enterprise plans, any editor can go offline with any model in the Subscription*.

For more information, refer to Sharing permissions levels.




*Processes with Published status are not available for offline editing.


Going Offline

To start working offline open your Cloud model in Bizagi Modeler and click Work Offline in the ribbon.




A new window appears where you can select the diagrams you need available offline. These will be stored locally in your machine. All chosen diagrams are automatically checked out to you. Remember that when a diagram is offline, and thus checked out, no other users sharing the model can edit its flow or documentation.




All chosen diagrams will be available offline, and the diagrams that were NOT chosen will not be available offline. Make sure the work offline button is disabled to confirm offline feature activation.




The diagrams you chose to be available offline will be locked for your team members until you check them in again. However all diagrams are available from the Web Application for reviewing and comments.




Going online after working offline

As soon as your internet connection is back, click Work Online. This will synchronize your work without checking it in, so your team members can stay up to date with your modifications.




If you have finished your modifications, click Check in to release control of the model so it is available to your colleagues.




If you have more than one diagram checked out, you can check them all in by closing Bizagi Modeler. A message asks if you want to check in all diagrams automatically.
