Hi Kerstin, All, 

Thinking again about complete processes (shopping, booking, etc...) they all (usually???) start with a form needing to be filled in by the user and submitted.  

The simplest way to find complete processes might be to search (scan) the site for forms. 

Thoughts / Comments

Very best regards
