Often there is a need to comment (and then discuss in group etc) single object, not the whole model. It is possible in 2 ways:

1. When in Edit mode - after selecting object - ARIS will create automatic tagging with name of object - later it is easy to filter model discussion to the one concerning one object. DISADVANTAGE:

- if object will change name - tagging is not updated (pretty obvious)

- after short period there is a huge number of tagging.

2. It is possible "properly" to comment single object - finding it using "search". Comment is visible in Company feed - it is possible to "like it", tag or follow. Disadvantage:

- the most important - comments are NOT visible from the model view

- there is no link to the "occurrence" of object


Summarizing - something is there - but definitely not working properly. Anyone solved the problem? Maybe it is possible to add additional tab for a model (overview/steps/diagram/documents etc) with "object comments"? Is it possible?

Dear Jarek,

1a) In the upcoming ARIS 9.8 SR4 (planned for Apr 15) the object tags will be updated when the corresponding object name changes.

1b) The amount of tags is something are driven by the ARIS users. But it's a matter of how they were educated. I would argue that object tagging is rather an exception, instead, using the process as context as often as possible.

2) What is your use case to comment on objects instead of their context, particular processes where they are used?

May I suggest that you fill in your suggestions for improvement into Brainstorm, Software AG's customer requirements roll-in solution. It's embedded in Empower, the customer portal. There, also other customers could Like and Watch features requests.
