Decision details in Word export (PDD)

  • 1.  Decision details in Word export (PDD)

    Posted 05-06-2021 15:37
    Hello, 

    We have a question about where decision details are listed in the PDD Word export? It appears the details do not show up there. It shows up in Capture, Process Maps and XML however, not in the PDD. We can see in the bird's eye view where there are decision points however, the details are not readable. Hoping that in future versions decisions are shown in similar format as Branches/Steps in the PDD. 

    Thank you!

    Hi Kirsty,

    I agree, it's not possible to read the decision stages in the Word export. 

    I'll feed it back to the respective product team and see if we can update this in a future version.

    In the short term, you might be able to manage this by adding some detail to actions following a decision in "Step Notes". This gets exported into the document and should be clearly readable.

    Thanks for your feedback.

Welcome to the Capture Community!

Blue Prism Capture is an intelligent process capture platform that simplifies the creation of process definition documents (PDDs) by combining task extraction and computer vision to auto-generate screenshots, step descriptions, process data, and process flows from a process owner demonstration. Customers can then optimize the process by adding or modifying steps and then extract their completed PDD, more quickly and accurately, into their preferred file format, including a Blue Prism process outline, which reduces time to automation even further.

Blue Prism Capture is an on-premise solution that combines task extraction and computer vision to auto generate screenshots, step descriptions, process data, and process flows, from a process owner demonstration of the as-is process. The captured flow can then be viewed and optimized by a process analyst, who can add further notes, definitions, and rearrange the steps in the flow, to produce a Process Definition Document (PDD) ready to be used by developers. Capture is free to use at the initial general release, with additional capabilities such as export to Blue Prism processes being developed in future releases.
Capture v2.1 is available at no extra costs to all Blue Prism customers, with the software available to download on the Blue Prism Product Portal.
