Search for processes by user/editor name

I repeatedly get asked the question, how can I search for a group of processes a specific person wrote/edited? We need this information for a variety of reasons, such as: - when someone leaves, seeing which processes they created and edited, so these processes can be allocated to someone new to maintain. - to track how many processes a process officer has been developing. - to search for processes you know a person has been working on but don't know where they are stored. Looking at the glossary, processes can be searched using many different methods, but I can't see a way to search for processes based on who wrote or edited the process. I know this information is stored in the snapshot feature of the process. It would be nice if this information was surfaced in the glossary or at least in the admin area under 'user management'. The Univerisity of Newcastle has so many people writing processes across the University, that processes are getting lost or aren't getting maintained because we can't search for the processes that have been created by historic users.

    We accept the request, but don't have a target timeline at this time. We will update this Idea when that changes.

    Thanks again!
