States are a logical representation of each phase of a process.


On the diagrams below you may see four different processes. The most visible parts of the diagrams are rectangles which represent states.

Diagrams may be more or less complex. It depends on logic of the process. 


Example: On diagram below there is a simple one-state approval process. When the process begins it goes to the "Waiting for Approval" state. The process will stay in this state until one of the actions ("Approve" or "Reject") is invoked. Usually the action may be  invoked only by the permitted approver. How to launch the action is described here.

Adding new state to the diagram is very easy: Adding State.


Every state may have set it's own unique properties like self timers, permissions etc... See more here.
