User-Friendly Undo and Redo Functions

Innovator 15.1 | Userfriendly Undo and Redo Functions



The undo/redo function has long since been a proven function in Innovator, and indeed within multi-user operation. Innovator 15.1 now makes this function even more user-friendly. With simply one click in Innovator, you can get a detailed list of the most recent changes, as you are already familiar with in e.g. MS Office programs. Use this overview and select all actions you want to undo/redo. This is a particularly helpful function for larger Innovator models as it shows you exactly what will be undone/redone rather than simply clicking on the button. Being able to see a list of changes makes it even easier to become an efficient and well-oiled machine. 

New Functions for SAP Solution Manager Interface


Reap the benefits of the combined application of Innovator and the SAP Solution Manager. This release brings with it improvements made to this interface. You can now update both your library elements, as well as references and applications in processes.  This means that any improvements you have made when e.g. merging process steps in the SAP system can now be transferred to the Innovator model to ensure consistency. 

The interface also enables synchronization of business process modeling with the SAP Solution Manager. Called subprocesses which are to be reused in the process can now be resolved using the interface and synchronized with SAP to enable transparency.

Link and Manage Terminology Across All Models

Innovator 15.1 | Link and Manage Terminology Across All Models

We are sure you use terminology in your Innovator model where a common understanding of the terms is key. Innovator enables you to define terminology and create a structured glossary. Terminology could only previously be linked to certain elements, but this is now possible for all model elements. Store terminology for all elements required and ensure a common understanding throughout your entire Innovator model. 

Innovator 15.1 brings with it the ability to manage terminology throughout your enterprise, process, software and data architecture. Simply mark any similar terminology as synonyms to ensure a clear overview of various terms within your model.  

Numerous Improvements to Details for Proven Features

As well as exciting new functions, Innovator 15.1 has also made improvements to proven functions. Innovator now has an additional notation layout for your BPMN diagrams. Process modelers can now decide which notation layout they would like to use for their BPMN diagrams. The only difference between both layouts is how the elements are depicted. You can now also show your business resources, e.g. roles responsible for carrying out a task, directly in BPMN diagrams so that you can see all key information at a glance.

Your bookmarks are now even easier to manage in Innovator 15.1. You can now use folders to hierarchically structure your bookmarks. This makes it easier to find bookmarks sorted according to topic so that you can navigate quickly and easily to the correct position in the model. Data export in Excel or JSON format is now even easier in Innovator 15.1 thanks to the automated PowerShell command. You can find all details about this and further changes in our official release info in our customer download portal.
