A. Name: The “Name” Section will allow a user to customize the name of the Widget. To edit the “Name” section, please follow the instructions below
i. Navigate cursor over existing name box
ii. Edit name by selecting name box and typing in desired name
B. Object Type: The Object Type is the primary filter when customizing the “My Objects” Widget. This filter should be set first, as all subsequent items are derivative of the Object Type. To select objects to be featured in a Widget, use the “Object Type” field and follow the instructions below:
i. Navigate cursor over the object type task bar
ii. Click on the task bar, which will generate a drop-down menu
iii. Select/Deselect desired object(s) to be featured in Widget window by navigating cursor and clicking on respective objects. Additionally, the drop-down menu features and buttons that can be used for mass selection.
C. Object Sub-Type: Users can use sub-type as an additional filter. This will filter for the selected object type that has a particular sub-type assigned. Sub-Types can be defined by administrators. These sub-types can then be associated to any object in EPC in the object’s properties. Note that only 1 sub-type can be assigned per object. As such, while users are able to select multiple sub-type filters for a single object type, this field will be disabled if the user selects multiple object types, as sub-types may vary between object types. To learn more about sub-types, click here.
Users can select multiple sub-type for a SINGLE object type. To add a filter, follow these steps:
i. Select the Object Sub-Type dropdown
ii. This will generate a dropdown of possible sub-types based on the object type
iii. Select one or more sub-type to apply the filter
D. Categories: Objects in EPC can be assigned multiple categories, depending on business needs. Categories are used to classify objects; users might want to filter all processes and assets that are currently outsourced and belong to the IT department. In this case, the “Outsource” and “IT” categories would be used as filters. Note that since multiple categories can be assigned to a single object, users are able to select many object types. To learn more about categories, click here.
To filter objects by categories, follow these steps:
i. Select the Categories dropdown
ii. This will generate a dropdown list
iii. Select one or more categories to apply the filter
E. Hide Name: To hide the display name of the widget, select this option.
The widget will appear in your page without its display name.
F. Assigned me to as: Roles will be assigned to users by EPC Modelers. Individuals can be assigned one or multiple roles, depending on their versatility within an organization. The reason individuals are often assigned multiple roles that do not necessarily mirror their job contract is to effectively segregate processes while providing appropriate levels of governance.
Example: if an employee works primarily as an HR Coordinator, but also works as an Event Planner for the organization they will be assigned both positions within the EPC, regardless of the specific job title on an individual’s contract.
Once roles have been assigned to users, they will appear in the following section:
The drop-down list will feature all of the roles and resources that the Web App user has been assigned. As seen below, the list for this specific user is populated with 2 roles (Business Analyst and Support Specialist) and with his specific resource profile (Kevin Tran).
Users can select one, or multiple options to better filter the information within the widget. To select these Options, please see the steps below:
i. Select the “Assigned to me as” Task bar
ii. This generate a drop-down menu
iii. Select the Role or Resource you would like to feature in the Widget by clicking on the item in the list
As seen above, the list for this specific user is populated with 2 roles (Business Analyst and Support Specialist) and with his specific resource profile (Kevin Tran).
G. My RASCI-VS: The My RASCI-VS filter allows users to filter through their assigned roles and resources and prioritize them based on their involvement in accordance with the RASCI-VS Matrix. This filter allows users to create Widgets categorized based on their level of involvement.
R – Responsible
A – Accountable
S – Support
C – Consulted
