Sometimes, a process may be quite lengthy or have a lot of clutter, or have a lot of duplicate groups. At times like this, collapsing groups may be a good idea to preserve a clean, concise and understandable process.
Collapsing a group simply hides the specific steps that make up a group, while ensuring the steps themselves still run. This allows a process designer to more easily navigate the entire process without having to scroll through steps that do not require much attention.
Collapsing a group
You can collapse a group by clicking on the arrow on the top right hand corner of your desired group.
Once you have collapsed the group successfully, your process should look like this:
If you'd like to expand a collapsed group so that you can see the steps inside the group again, simply click on the arrow on the top right hand corner of your desired group.
Collapsing all groups
There is also the option to either collapse all groups in a process or collapse all groups in a process except for the current one.
This could be useful if you do not need to see the actual steps contained in each group, but rather the process flow of each group, for convenient navigation or minimal clutter.
You can collapse all groups in a process by right-clicking any group in the process (in the blue bar at the top of a group) and selecting "Collapse all groups".
Note: you may also collapse all groups except the current one by instead selecting "Collapse all groups but this one".
You may then expand back all the groups in a process by similarly right-clicking any group (in the blue bar at the top of a group) or anywhere in the yellow/orange background and selecting "Expand all groups".
