View Active and Inactive Processes

ProcessMaker displays all active and inactive Processes in one table that Process Designers have created throughout your organization. This makes it easy to manage your Processes. A Process can have one of these status:
  • Active
    : The Active status indicates that new Requests of the Process can be started and in-progress Requests can be completed. Moreover, Process Designers can edit the Process as needed. Changes made to an active Process are reflected in new Requests only and any in-progress Requests are not affected.
  • Inactive
    : The Inactive status indicates that new Requests of the Process can not be started. In-progress Requests can complete; they are not affected. Moreover, Process Designers can edit the Process as needed.
  • Archived
    : The Archived status indicates that new Requests of the Process can not be started. In-progress Requests can complete; they are not affected. However, Process Designers cannot edit the Process until it is restored.
