How to edit processes in Holocentric Connect

To edit existing processes, a user must have one of the following permissions in the Connect system:

  • Process step editing
  • Process editing
  • Model Administration
  • Administration

System administrators can change permissions for different users by going to People > Users.

1. Edit Process

1.1 To open a process, access the Operations tab and click the Processes subtab, select the process you want to edit, and click Open. 

If you have opened a process that has no additional drafts waiting to be approved, published, or deleted, a variety of editing options are available.  


If the process already has a draft version (or a version that is awaiting approval/publication) please open this version to edit NOT the older published version.

1. 2 To access your editing options, click Start Editing.

1.3.  A release management workflow appears. It gives you guidance on all the steps you need to take to publish a new version of your process. You can write a summary of what you intend to change. Click OK to start editing.

This makes a new draft version of your process and you can start editing the content. You can edit different parts of a process. The editing options available to you differ depending on the part of the process that you choose to edit.  

2. Edit Details

This option allows you to edit the core information about the process.
