Business process is a list of page navigations which is crucial for business point of view. User can generate a funnel to see the user’s behavior on those pages.

Understanding Business Process Funnel
To understand the business process funnel, it is categorized into certain sections:
Section – 1
This section denotes how many users entered to the system (for example, 625991) via the defined business process. It also denotes how many of them (in percentage) followed the next level of the business process (for example, 19%) and how many of them (in percentage) did not follow the business process (for example, 81%). This is because they have navigated to some other pages and exited from the system.
Section – 2
This section displays the pages from where the user entered to the system (for example – Entrance, category, and others).
Section – 3
This section displays the segregation of the users (19 % or 120765) navigated to further pages (for example, AddToBag, ShoppingBag, CheckOutPayment).
Section – 4
This denotes from which page user exited from the system. It also denotes events occurred with various sections of the user navigation. Below is the list of events.
Section – 5
This section denotes the users forwarded to the next level of the business process along with the users joined from some other pages.
This process is followed at other business process levels in the similar manner. At the last level (for example, checkout payment), number of orders confirmed is displayed along with the funnel conversion rate.

Funnel Visualization – Quantify Revenue Opportunities
Using this feature, user can quantify the revenue opportunities. For this, user first needs to click the Edit button. Then, a navigation bar is activated that allows the user to increase/decrease the values in the bar. And accordingly, the projected values are getting changed that can quantify the revenue opportunities.
Below is as example of this feature. On increasing the bar, the projected values, such as conversion rate, completed users, and revenue are also increased with the same ratio and user can quantify the revenue opportunities.
