Features of ProcessMaker
Now RESTful APIs are available in ProcessMaker to access all the ProcessMaker functionality. The REST APIs are used by developers that want to integrate ProcessMaker with other standalone or web applications, and for administrators who want to script interactions with the ProcessMaker server.
OAuth 2.0 is used as the API Authorization framework. Requests and responses are formatted as JSON.
The REST Api opens the possibility to integrate ProcessMaker BPM functionality in all kind of applications using a standard communication interface.

The Basic Dashboards provide decision makers with full visibility to see how processes and employees are performing. There are nearly unlimited options for creating personalized dashboards. Additionally, in one of the latest versions of ProcessMaker, we added two new KPIs:
- Process Efficiency Index (PEI): This “intelligent” index learns the process behavior over time and establishes optimal performance levels based on a combination of process factors including standard deviation, resource costs, and comparative rankings.
- Employee Efficiency Index (EEI): Similar to the PEI, this “intelligent” index measures the efficiency of each user over time and ranks the user based on efficiency and cost savings to the organization
Output Document Builder
The Output Document Builder is used to create electronic receipts, letters, confirmations, invoices, contracts or any other type of printable Output Document. The Output Documents can then be added to activities where a printable form needs to be generated with auto-filled information collected during the process
User Portal & Cases Inbox
The User Portal consists of the Cases Inbox, Search, and Document Management, and is the heart of the end user experience in ProcessMaker. This is where users can track the progress of requests they have initiated or requests that require their input. Our advanced search functionality makes it easy to find past cases. The ProcessMaker Inbox is designed to be as easy to use and as familiar as an E-mail inbox. Supervisors can see cases that require review or require reassignment.
ProcessMaker’s user management features are powerful. Create Roles, Groups, and Departments to customize your processes for the unique structure, reporting requirements and chain of command in your organization. Users can be assigned different roles which match their functions in your organization. Manage user vacation periods and shift case loads automatically to co-workers
