    Thanks for your request!

    Please note that the "Linked To" processes in the Process Summary view are already visible to Viewers. And so we'll focus on the "Linked From" data in this RFE.

    Based on some of the specifics you've shared with us about how your processes are modelled, we agree that you have a reasonable need for this data to be visible to your viewers.
    As we understand, your processes are modelled using a complex hierarchy, with many linkages. A viewer who opens a process which is not at the top of the hierarchy can today navigate down. But without the ability to navigate up, they risk missing parts of the end-to-end process captured in the parent hierarchy. The "Linked From" data in the Process Summary view is a reasonable way to navigate up. And so we agree that exposing this data to Viewers makes sense here.

    We've queued this up for an upcoming release. Thanks!
