How to generate a diagram

To generate a new diagram, go to the "Processes" tab and select "New Map".

On the window that opens, click the "Auto-generate" toggle on (to the right). This will display a new field in the window.

Fill in the map name, description, and further instructions. While the "Instructions" field is not mandatory, it is strongly suggested you fill in as many details as possible about the map. This ensures the results are as close as possible to what you need to generate. (See our tips below for further guidance on getting the most out of this feature).

Once filled in, select the "Create" button, sit back, and relax!

The process should take around 1 to 2 minutes depending on the length of context/size of diagram being generated.

You may need to rearrange some boxes and arrows once generated, but the idea is to give you a head-start in business analysis and process mapping using UPN.

How to generate a drilldown

To automatically generate a drilldown on an existing diagram, right-click on the activity that you want to create a drilldown for. From the opened context menu, select "Auto-generate" and this will show a new window for entering the drilldown name, description, and instructions.

These fields are the same as the ones described in How to Generate a Diagram (above). Once filled in, press "Create" and a drilldown diagram will be generated at that level according to the provided information.

Tips for success

  • As always with AI, better data = better outcome.

  • Provide specific guidance in the instructions field. For example, specify which resources you want to be included and where the process should start and end, as well as any specific activities or outcomes.

  • Good guidance examples include written process documentation or summaries of a process (hint: you can use ChatGPT to summarise large files or guidance text, and use that summary to prompt the diagram generation).
