Tips and tricks for converting old flowcharts into new BPMN flowcharts

Modified on Wed, 3 Jul at 8:32 AM

The conversion of old flowcharts into new BPMN flowcharts can be started in edit mode by double-clicking on an old flowchart. In the following, we will give you a few tips on how to optimize the automatic result with just a few simple steps.


  • Due to technical limitations, arrows are only converted as a direct connection. You can quickly improve the arrow display by briefly moving each symbol.
  • This conversion does not automatically delete the old flow chart. Once you are happy with the new flowchart, please delete the old flowchart manually.
  • Links are migrated automatically, but due to technical limitations they are always included in the new flowchart as "External link". We recommend reconfiguring links to other Q.wiki content as "internal links" so that, for example, the current page title can be displayed.
  • From now on, only one flowchart can exist per page.
    • If a BPMN flowchart already exists, this flowchart will be overwritten during the conversion.
    • If you still require several flowcharts per page, this is no longer possible and we recommend splitting the page into several pages or displaying both languages within one symbol in the case of multilingualism.
    • Please note that you can copy old flowcharts from the old page to a new page in order to start a conversion there. This means you do not have to completely rebuild a flowchart.
