I have a situation where one of three resources is chosen by an external actor. Once they have chosen a resource a single path is followed for about two steps and then it joins back into the main flow.  I could do it as a two-tier decision point ... the first tier indicates the topic, which then dictates which tier two resources are available and then use a decision step to select one of the resources. But in the interest of diagramming simplicity, that seems overcomplicated.  Is there another way? I believe in BPMN it is an inclusive gateway (but I am not an expert on BPMN)

Let me write out the flow in specific in case that helps.

After some traffic generating activities (an initial process), a website visitor comes to the site interested in one of four topics (decision step one, Call them 1 2 3 4) By pursuing the interest they have chosen, there are some relevant resources and some irrelevant resources (Call them A B C D)
 If a person selects 1, then resource A C and D is relevant.
 If they select 2, then A and D are relevant
 if they select 3 then B, C, and D are relevant. etc.

However, they only need to select one path to go forward, so if path 1 is chosen, then any one of 1A, 1C, and 1D is a complete path.  They do not need to complete all three to be done to the next stage.  I hope that helps a little in my application

Thanks for any help you can offer,

Yes, reinstallation and advices that I've found on this site really helped me

I tried with the iCloud off. Turns out it was the shadows. Seems to be running normally now even with iCloud active. I'll keep an eye on it and let you know if it starts to act strange again.

Great Program!

Thank you for explanation of semi-authomated method

Quite strange, not typical behavior.

Did this behavior occur immediately after installation?
Or after creating/uploading certain diagrams, in this case could you send me their exports?

Is iCloud enabled, if so, try disabling it.

Decided to purchase the osx version of inShort after trying the iOS app. The app is putting a constant load on the CPU, causing the fan to kick in,  and draining my battery. This happens on both my mac mini and macbook air. Any way to stop this?

It is not a bug. This is short-time problem

Started by ybollati - Last post by shortki enables collaboration for multiple users, therefore, individual service functions have a significant difference in implementation compared to the inShort application.

In particular, the Queues functionality becomes much richer, and I need some time to work through the concept of multi-user queues. This will not only be a mechanism for ranking current tasks, but also a means of allocating and assigning work to participants in the working group. Also, Queues will become a mechanism for sending notifications about current tasks. Therefore, Queues is an important stage in the subsequent development of the service, which needs to be thought over carefully.

The Task Calendar function also needs to be worked out.

The search in is similar to inShort and is available in reports, you only need to preconfigure any report.

In, there is no tactical coloring and various graphical styles of the diagrams, as drawing the graphics in a browser is not fast enough for these features. Also there are no proxy objects, as they can become a source of problems when working together. Illustrations in PDF format are not supported, as not all browsers support it, by the way, and vice versa, inShort does not work with SVG, since macOS does not have appropriate support.

In other respects, the systems are as much as possible identical.

I had an InShort licence on my iPad for at least 2 years. I played with it a bit from time to time but I never really dig into it. I use often other project management Mac software, such as Merlin or Omniplan. It's only when I bought the InShort Mac version a few weeks ago and invested a couple of hours to really understand the power of the tool that I grasped it. I am hooked ! I really learned to love the InSort approach and in just 10 days I have done much more that what I do in the other PM tools I used before.

Now... I am starting a new large project, maybe 30/40 people, 2/3 years, multi millions euros kind of project. In the past I would use Merlin to manage such a complex project. I really like the idea of taking the plunge and manage it with InShort. InShort is really impressive. For the last 10 days that I am using the Mac version intensively I did not find any significant bug... but ... I am am worried that very few professional project managers really use InShort ? I mean as their main PM tool for large complex projects.

I noticed for instance that the activity in this users forum is quite low. If I look at many user posts, people seems to be active for a few weeks and then gone. Posts are not very frequent. Like if their were not so many real active long term users. A tool such as Merlin for instance has a much bigger and active user community. At least it seems.

Are you a professional project manager ? Are you using InShort on significant real projects for a long period ? What is your experience ?

InShort lacks some features related to costs tracking, what else do you think is missing whiling using it to manage real projects in practice ?

Many thanks !!
