Creating New Steps
A Core Process* is a core function of your company, such as Marketing and Finance.
To create a new Step* below a Core Process*, click the Add New Step icon (black plus sign) at the bottom center of the Core Process*. Once the Core Process has at least one Step, you can View Steps or Collapse Steps using the arrow icon at the bottom center of the Core Process*.
Tip: Clicking View Steps will fully expand all Steps* and Sub-Steps*, but you will no longer be able to see other Core Processes*. Use Collapse Steps to see them again.
Once one Step* has been created, add the next Step* to that same Core Process* by clicking the Add New Step icon (blue plus sign). Create a Sub-Step* by clicking the Add New Sub-Step icon (black plus sign).
When you need to communicate about these items, you have options:
Use a direct link to the Core Process*, Step*, or Sub-Step* tile
Refer to the Step* number and Sub-Step* letter
Example: To refer to a specific Step* in a Core Process*, we'll often say, "HR Sub-Step 1A."
Assign an Owner
Assign an owner by clicking the person icon on the tile. This will pull up a list of people from the Responsibilities Chart* to choose from.
Note: In order to assign any part of a
Process to a person, they must be assigned to a Responsibilities Chart* Seat.
View and Edit Tiles
Use the View Details icon (block arrow) to open and edit the details of any Core Process*, Step*, or Sub-Step* tile. The title and description will save automatically when changed.
Create a Details List
Under Details, click Add Item to include a detailed bullet point list (such as a checklist or a simple breakdown of the process). Click Add Item again to add an additional point. Use the Delete List Item icon (X) to remove a list item. Hover to the left of each item and use the drag handle icon to rearrange Details.
Attach a KPI
KPIs* that have been created for the Scorecard* can be added to any Step* and Sub-Step*. Think about what KPIs* to connect to judge the Process* effective.
Are all Steps* being completed?
How do I know these Steps* are being completed successfully?
Attach a Document
Any file type can be attached to a Step*. All users can see the Process page. There are no permissions around documents, so anyone will be able to download and view these items.
