  1. On the Navigation Tree, click Automator and select Visual Processes.

  2. On the displayed page, select the Import Processes tab.

  3. Click the Upload button and choose the file to import in the Open dialog box. You can select only one file at once.

NOTE: You can also import a standard process as a visual process. For this, export the standard processes with the "Include process dependencies" option enabled, and then upload them to Visual Processes.

  1. Enable the Change locations on import check box to substitute all locations values to the selected new location.

  2. Enable the Include process dependencies check box to import models, workspaces, change lists, and Visual Processes/Standard Processes connected to the processes (if any) to the Server Library.
