An activity is a task that needs to be accomplished within a defined period of time or by a deadline to work towards work-related goals. Activities can be linked together using connections to create dependencies.
An activity holds several different attributes. Each attribute has three state-values, It can have relations to other activities, It can have a name, role(s) assigned to it, a description, and be part of groups and a level.
The three Boolean states that every activity has are:
All the relationary conditions are based on these values.
- We can create new activities in graph by clicking on the + Add Activity button in the activities/process panel (placed on left by default)
- We can also click on insert in main menu on the top and then click on + New Activity
- Another way is to right click on the canvas anywhere (gray area), a menu will be shown click on Add Activity and a new Activity will be created there
- We can also create a new Activity by dragging the + Add Activity button found in the activities/process panel to the canvas and after drag a new Activity will be created there.
Roles are associated with activities and consist of a title, a description and a specification as outlined below:
