Importing Rulex Processes
The Import process command imports previously exported PRCX files into a process, and persists its data on the database of the new process. Processes are not dynamically linked to the original process, but there are numerous advantages to working in this way:
collaborative working and merging processes - different people can work on different areas of the same global process, export their parts as PRCX files and merge them into a single process.
debugging processes - if there are problems with a process, the whole process and its data can be exported and sent for analysis. This persistent mode displays each individual task and its output, and makes debugging much easier.
back-ups - the whole process can be exported and saved as a back-up.
Alternatively you can dynamically import processes as modules or complete PRCX files. See Compacting Tasks into Modules for more details.
Copy & Paste
A quick alternative for copying small parts of a process is to selected the tasks and copy and paste them within the same or different process. In this way the data are not copied, but only the operations.
To import an existing process into your current process, either:
Click Import Process in the tool bar, or
Click File > Import process.
Browse to the .prc file and click Save.
Select whether you want to create a new process, in which case you will have to provide a unique name for the process, or import the process into your current process.
Click OK. If you have created a new process it is displayed in the Processes tab of the Processes pane.
