Understanding the process flow

Once a process instance is activated, the first workstep defined in the process is run. For each workstep, BP Server creates workitems for the performers. BP Server then assigns tasks to the performers as specified in the process flow. The performer of an activity workstep can be an individual, any member of a group, all members of a group, or any member of a queue.
When a task is assigned to a user, it shows up in the person’s Task List. Once all the workitems of a workstep (meaning all the tasks) are completed, the server activates the next workstep defined in the process flow.
