    Hi,

     

    I think this issue still persists. Could anyone please confirm if these links are expected to be fixed in the future or whether these are going to be removed permanently? If I click on the ‘interactive diagram’ links, a zip is downloaded in each case but none of them actually display any workflow.

     

    Hope these are indeed fixed since these are a good way to understand the working of the product.

     

    Regards,

    Tejaswini
