Using Tools to Represent Appraisal Status Flow (HR Module “Objectives Settings and Appraisals”) as Diagram
You define the status flow for appraisal documents according to the different phases in the appraisal process. After this operation, you get a set of steps and you can go from one step to another if different conditions are fulfilled. From a mathematical point of view, the status flow is a graph and the steps are the nodes of the graph. It's a bit difficult to see the big picture of your flow when the steps and the transitions are stored and displayed as a table. This article proposes extracting the status flow and export it into a tool that allows you to see the whole process in a visual way.
