Collaboration Hub is a powerful tool for collaborative process and decision management. It serves as the access point to your process landscape for non-modelers and enables users to view diagrams and diagram details and to leave comments for other viewers and modelers.
You can decide who will have access to Collaboration Hub and which diagrams will be published. To give colleagues access to Collaboration Hub, they don't need a user account to the Signavio system.
The way you enter Collaboration Hub depends on your Signavio edition and system configuration. Read more at Configuring access to Collaboration Hub.
