Classical process mining aims to capture the behavior of a process based on a single dimension: the sequence of activities grouped by process cases. This viewpoint fails to capture how individual actors are organizing their work across multiple cases. We present a tool that uses the graph database Neo4j to model actor behavior over different cases as an event graph. We then use Neo4j queries to detect task execution patterns in the graph describing how multiple actors collaborate across multiple cases. Exploring and visualizing these patterns enables the data driven analysis of tasks, routines, and habits as studied in organizations research.
