Time after time, we are mind mapping to visualize how our automated processes work. Whether that is on a dry erase board, a sticky note, an etch a sketch, your Lisa Frank Trapper Keeper (look it up if you don't remember those) and other forms of artistic critical thinking. Wouldn't it be nice to hit a beautiful blue button that said EXPORT - MIND MAP! BetterCloud already does a fantastic job at dragging and dropping triggers to your new or existing workflows. This takes that one step further to provide a visual representation of the work you put into creating that beautiful automated business beast we call Workflows.
Mind Mapping has been extremely beneficial across all industries and organizations. It is a graphical way to visual present ideas and conceptual designs to stakeholders, executives, and other business leaders (internal/external) to provide structure and understanding. Using this method, the entire workflow can be organized and shown on a large display to give everyone that "WOW" factor! Brainstorming and identifying each relationship, this provides clarity and confidence on how the workflow simplifies the automated process. Visualizing can even help discover new relationships or even missed ones.
I have attached a mock up example of the button and the visual mind map. I used this in a previous meeting and they want more! I truly feel this could open the door to engaging more end users to create smarter and effective workflows in the BC platform, and even moving forward with future connectors and integrations using the API. This is a limitless opportunity!
