Presentation mode and Presentation actions

Overview

Bizagi allows you to demonstrate your models through the Presentation Mode where a full display view, in read-only mode is used, similar to the Full screen view in Microsoft products.

 

In Presentation Mode you can access the main characteristics of your processes, all the documentation you have included and also add Presentation Actions.

Presentation actions are on-click behaviors that can be defined for each diagram element. Behaviors are additional information that you can add to each element to make the process presentation more complete, for example you can open a URL, a file, an image or display text.
