Data Flow Diagrams (DFD) - Logic Export

Postby s.alex.johnson » Fri Jan 17, 2020 9:28 pm

I'd like to provide logic/data flow diagrams to Project Managers and Leadership on our project (without showing the actual transforms and coding). Is there functionality within Clover to ‘export’ only the visual portion of a graph? In other words, can a ‘data flow diagram’ be generated in an editable format and opened outside of the CloverDX software? (for example, in Microsoft Visio, PowerPoint, or other similar viewing program). Having the ability to shift components around and change labels would be extremely useful for visualization and effectively communicating the work being done.

Hi Alex,

The details are being discussed with Jay via email but let me try to explain shortly. You can indeed export only the visual part of any job and you can also export an HTML representation of it which is more detailed, however, neither of these options let you manipulate the content of the job. Here is how to export it:

1. Right click on the job you want to export in the Navigator window.
2. Select Export ...
3. Expand the CloverDX item and select the format you want to export it to.

Best regards.
