How to prepare your Visio diagram for Unistep

To obtain the results shows in the previous pages, you must define the processes ("streams" in Unistep speak) for Unistep in your Visio diagram. That means define the stream steps. A steps can be a Visio shape, or several shapes.

This is easy. At the beginning, you select in order the shapes on your Visio Diagram, then associate it with a stream button.

Create links between streams

Between two streams there are two types of links:

  • Horizontal link: after the last step of the stream A the process flow continues to the first step of stream B. The process stops at the last step of stream B (if it is not linked at its turn).
  • Drill down link : at step "x" of the stream A the process flow continues to the first step of process B. At the last step of process B, the process flow comes back to stream A, at step "x+1". At its turn the process B may have steps linked in drill down mode of more detailed processes.
