Improved Process Discovery Map View

1. When a process have many milestones and many activities, a scrollbar is presented. When scrolling down to one activity, the Milestone header will be hidden. To be able to work with all different activities, we need to scroll up to see what milestone it belongs to. Therefor, It would be nice to have the option to "Sticky" the milestone header, so that it'll be visible when scrolling.

2. A "Fullscreen" option to maximize the Discovery area.

3. Possibility to drag & drop multiple activity at once

4. Activity text shall adapt when zooming

    Thanks for your requests, Omar! In the future, please submit one request per RFE otherwise it becomes difficult to respond & track status effectively.
    1, We agree, this would be a nice enhancement.
    2. The "Process Outline" view (the window on the left hand side of the screen) can be totally minimized.....this creates a large discovery area. At this time, we don't plan on adding a Fullscreen option for the Discovery Map.
    3. Multiple activities can be dragged and dropped on the Process Diagram today. We would like to eventually add the same for the Discovery Map but don't have a timeframe for that yet.
    4. The activity text does adapt when zooming - when you zoom in it gets larger, and when you zoom out it gets smaller. If this is not working this way for you you may need to submit a Support Ticket so that we can troubleshoot.
