Triaster software now has the ability to interpret multiple different process mapping methodologies. Some of the capabilities of the Triaster software can now be applied to any Visio diagram, whether or not the diagram itself was created from a Triaster template.
For process maps that are created from any standard Visio template, where the shapes have a Master (i.e. have not been grouped or combined), and where the connections between shapes are well formed, Triaster is now able to:
This applies to both newly created process maps and legacy Visio process maps. As Process Navigator now uses the Microsoft File format at its native file format, there is no longer any requirement to import legacy Visio process maps.
Accordingly there is out of the box support for all the standard Visio templates, for example:
To be able to work with all diagram types, a way is needed to access Triaster functionality without having right-click menus. So new Toolbar Ribbons have been created...
On the new Triaster toolbar ribbons, you’ll find everything you need to work with all diagram types:
The ribbons will load straight from the box on Visio 2010 and later.
This is a more secure approach and requires less set-up steps.
For users with maps created in previous versions of Process Navigator, there is no need to upgrade or alter existing maps as 16.5 is compatible with both macro-enabled (.vsdm) and normal Visio documents (.vsdx).
Both Process Navigator 16.5 and Triaster Server 17.1 contain various issue fixes.
Upgrading from version 15.1 or later is a relatively straightforward process and it may be possible to self-upgrade depending on the complexity of your system. You should allow half a day to perform the upgrade and make all necessary checks before going live.
Upgrading from version 14.3 or earlier is a more complex process.
Please contact firstname.lastname@example.org to discuss your upgrade before you start.
However if you are not upgrading to Visio 2013, version 16.5 Process Navigator is available for download from the Triaster Knowledge Base: Software Download page.
