Adding Grouping to Process Flow & Relationships Views

As we mentioned last month, we’ve begun a process of revitalizing and improving the most-used views in Ardoq, and also adding grouping functionality to them.

Since then, we’ve also completely redesigned how Process Flow draws references and places components, resulting in more logical and legible diagrams.

Now, we’re very excited to introduce component grouping into the Process Flow and Relationships views.


GDPR Templates for Gap Analysis

GDPR compliance gap observations documented and visualized in Ardoq.

Over the last few weeks I have been contributing to a case in which our partner, Capgemini, had been helping a shared client in their journey towards GDPR compliance. This process provided key insights into how similar projects traditionally have used fragmented tools and templates to gain an overview of expansive and complex projects – tools like Excel, PowerPoint, Visio, or wikis. These tools all have their own strengths and purposes, but used in this type of scenario, teams are setting themselves up for failure.


View Updates: Process Flow & Dependency Matrix Redesigns

As mentioned earlier this week, we’ve started an early “Spring cleaning” of the most used visualizations in Ardoq. Today we’re very happy to release a new version of the Process Flow and Dependency Matrix views into the app.


Improved Dependency Map, Big Upcoming Changes to Process Flow

We’re proud of the new features and upgrades we’ve released over the past year, but it’s been a while since the core Ardoq views have gotten the “Spring cleaning” treatment. We recently started that process – improving the appearance and functionality of our most-used views. First up, the Dependency Map view.

Dependency Map Improvements

The most noticeable change to this view is the fresh coat of paint – the colors have been updated to be a little less “loud”, and overall the formatting and subtle design touches have been improved.


Ardoq Zapier Integration Beta

As we announced in December, we’ve released a beta version of Ardoq webhooks (to get access, use the form at the bottom of this post). Powered by webhooks, we’ve also built a beta version of an Ardoq integration with Zapier, the popular automation platform that connects web apps.

Zapier Integrations

Using Zapier, you can do things like create new Trello tasks from starred Gmail messages, get notified about Github activity in HipChat…the possibilities are extensive. But the point is: Zapier has a huge catalog of web apps that you can create integrations between, and we want to add Ardoq to that list.


New Feature: Bulk Component Editing

Bulk editing is something that many customers have asked us for, and today we’re happy to deliver. Bulk editing is available now in the product, so try it out and let us know what you think!

Selecting multiple components

In the navigator, hold down Cmd (Mac) or Ctrl (PC) to select multiple components.

Note that simply clicking a component to focus on it does not include it in the selection, you’ll need to Cmd/Ctrl click that component as well.
