What do you mean by ‘animate a model’?
Simply put, a model is a drawing of how processes should go. You can draw it on paper or in the modeling grid on this website. To ‘animate a model’ means that the computer starts an actual process (instantiation), exactly according to the way you have drawn it in the modeling grid. You can take all possible directions in the flow of process steps. The same model can have many instantiations which can each be different, according to what happens in each process step.
Why do I need animation of process models?
Well, in everyday life many processes don’t work the way they were supposed to. By animating models they become practical, and real, for all people involved. This way we can construct organization which operates more efficiently and with fewer mistakes. And we can do this beforehand, before it’s too late to make changes.

However if you want to cancel your subscription intermediately, we will not provide a refund for the remainder of the license time.
