Uploading or saving models to Cloud

Every model stored in Bizagi Cloud needs to be created using Bizagi Modeler and then uploaded to your account. You have two options to upload models:

 

Upload a model that has been previously stored locally in your desktop

Save a new model directly in Bizagi Cloud
