NEW: Process Web Part
Build and visualise your business processes in SharePoint
In any organisation, processes are the backbone of policies and procedures, pivotal for knowledge sharing. With all the policies in SharePoint, we saw a need for a simpler way to show and share these processes attached to specific documentation. That led us to create the Process Web Part.
Harness the power of BPMN
Our Process Web Part is not just any tool: it’s fueled by the globally recognised, Business Process Management and Notation (BPMN). BPMN offers a dependable methodology for documenting and defining intricate business processes.
Safe, secure and accessible
For those moments when you need an immediate copy, our “Backup on Demand” feature allows you to download a backup anytime, giving you peace of mind. Additionally, all your data is stored in the reliable BPMN XML format and seamlessly integrates with SharePoint’s robust version control.
Building and customising your workflows
With the Process Web Part, creating workflows becomes a breeze:
Clear guidance: Map out step-by-step instructions, ensuring consistent adherence across your team.
Flexibility in design: Easily customise text, add steps, or rearrange sequences using the intuitive drag-and-drop interface.
Dynamic viewing experience
Rather than a static, potentially difficult-to-decipher image, The Process Web Part provides a dynamic view. SharePoint users can effortlessly zoom in to grasp finer details or zoom out for a holistic overview, making process navigation straightforward and user-friendly for everyone.
The Process Web Part makes sharing and agreement on business processes within SharePoint more effective than ever.

A responsive, seamless experience across devices
We understand the importance of accessibility when it comes to navigating your SharePoint calendar. Our enhanced Calendar Web Part in version 5.2 is all about adaptability and user experience. Whether you’re viewing it on a 1/3 or full screen, it adjusts flawlessly to your preferences.
The visuals have also been given a refreshing upgrade. As you navigate between months, you’ll notice the fluid, modern design that remains consistent regardless of your device. For those on the move – this feature is optimised for both mobile and tablet use.
Metadata transfer with document conversion
With the introduction of our document converters in version 5.0, converting Word documents into Pages or PDFs straight from a document library became a game-changer for many of you.
In version 5.2, we’ve enhanced our Document Converters. This update ensures that all your metadata remains intact. If you have columns in your document library, such as “Owner” or “Next Review Date”, and they match with names in other libraries, they’ll transfer seamlessly. After conversion, your Word document will appear in the Pages library with all the appropriate details and metadata.
This feature allows you to display custom fields in the Knowledge Hub properties section and sets the foundation for future workflow integrations. Overall, we’re refining the Knowledge Hub and document conversion experience to be even more intuitive and streamlined
