Add Live Insights

With the Live Insights shapes, you can add insights and KPIs you want to monitor to BPMN diagrams, value chains, and navigation maps.

For that, you add a Live Insights shape to your diagram and link it with a widget from SAP Signavio Process Intelligence. Users can then view the Live Insights in SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub.

In SAP Signavio Process Intelligence, thresholds need to be defined for the widgets that are linked to Live Insights shapes. In SAP Signavio Process Manager, the color of the shape indicates how the current result of the widget relates to the defined thresholds. The following example shows how the sentiment shape reflects the current widget result:

The color of a shape is only visible in SAP Signavio Process Collaboration Hub. In SAP Signavio Process Manager, the shapes stay grey.

Access the Live Insights shapes

For BPMN diagrams and value chains, you find the Live Insights shapes in the Live Insights shape repository. A workspace administrator can enable this shape repository for you.

For navigation maps, they are available by default.
