Activity Stream


The Activity Stream lets everyone collaborating in a model keep track of all changes and comments performed by all team members, wherever they are, in a rich and meaningful way. A time line lists all activities chronologically. Each activity contains an icon categorizing the story types and a link to navigate easily to the object mentioned.


Before you start

The Activity Stream is available in Bizagi Modeler (desktop application) and in the Process Library for customers with a plan or in Trial mode, for both Editors and Contributors.


Using the Activity Stream

To open the Activity Stream pane, click the bell icon (ActivityStream_02) at the bottom right corner of Bizagi Modeler or in the toolbar in the Process Library (Websitel_16).

When the Activity Stream opens, the activity list with past events appears. Every new activity appears as soon as it arrives. If the pane is closed and a notification is received, the icon is highlighted with orange (ActivityStream_03) or (Websitel_19).
