Designing a process template diagram : Connecting worksteps : Using multiple links

Using multiple links

You can use multiple incoming and outgoing links for a workstep without using an intermediary Or-Join, AND or Decision. In addition, Business Process Modeler supports multiple outgoing links for Start worksteps; and multiple incoming links for Decisions and End worksteps.
The following restrictions apply to workstep connections:
*You cannot have more than one link of the same type with the same source and target worksteps.
*A link cannot originate from and terminate at the same workstep.
*The Or-Join and XOR-Join gateways can have only one outgoing link. When an AND Gateway has multiple incoming links, it acts as an And-Join and can have only one outgoing link.
Note: Even though you can now design a business process without using the Or-Join or Decision gateways, these worksteps are still available for users who want to add them to processes to clarify or highlight areas of the process’s workflow.
* Using multiple incoming links to worksteps
* Using multiple outgoing links from worksteps
* Using multiple incoming/outgoing links with gateways
* Defining Loops in the workflow
