Surveys and diagrams
What if I have a custom Survey?
Diagrams can only be generated from stock Survey Answers.
What if I don’t save the Survey before opening the Diagram page?
You will lose Survey edits if you navigate away from the Survey page without saving or if the session times out (2 hours), which will affect any generated diagram.
Working with the canvas
Do components added to a generated diagram bring new Tasks into the project?
No, adding or removing diagram components does not affect project Tasks. Project Tasks are brought in only from Project Survey answers.
Can multiple people edit a diagram at the same time?
No, only one person can edit a diagram, similar to Survey functionality.
How can I export an image of the entire diagram?
An exported diagram is a representation of what you can see on the canvas. If only part of the diagram is visible on the canvas but you want to export the entire thing, click the [ - ] zoom button until you can see the all components, zones, and connectors.
How can I visualize ingress/egress points in a diagram?
You can add a label to a connector to denote an ingress or egress point.
