2. From the Tasks pan, click the Create Phases and Swim Lanes link in the Design Tasks panel, and then click the Phase () icon to open the Phase Properties dialog box.
Note: You can also use the ‘P’ gesture to add a phase. For details, see Using mouse gestures.
3. Enter the ID and Name of the new phase in the respective boxes.
4. Click OK to add a new phase to the process template diagram. Move all the worksteps that belong to this phase into the added phase, as seen in the Figure 6.
