Workspace Blueworks Live
Created by Guest
Created on May 12, 2022

Allow different layouts in workspace to display full artifact name.

When displaying a workspace with a number of artifacts (process models, workspaces, decisions, etc.) that contain long names, those names are cut off no matter how much you zoom in or out. The only way to see the full name is to hover over the artifact for it to display or open it. Our naming conventions require a prefix that can sometimes push unique identifiers to the end of the name, which gets cut off in the workspace display. That will end up with a number of items that seem to have the same name since we can't see the categorization on the end. Provide the option to change the layout to show less columns of artifacts to allow the longer names to display without hovering over the artifact. If I need to see longer names, have a toggle at the top (similar to following/all/hierarchy on Spaces) to show as list or other options. Same could be done on Library Spaces & Processes screens.
