1 Click Create Buttons

New Series of Creately Tips and Tricks

Many of you have told us how much you love Creately, and we thank you for all the great feedback you’ve provided over the last couple of months. As we approach our Public Launch, I’ve decided to start a series of short informational posts with tricks and tips that will make Creately even easier to use and demonstrate the richness of features we’ve packed into Creately.

1 Click Create buttons
Our 1 Click Create buttons have been around for sometime now, and they make flow charting and organisational charts an absolute breeze to create. You can find the 1 Click Create button on the contextual toolbar for every object in Creately, and it’s been built with smarts to automatically create the correct type of object depending on the diagram you’re drawing and connect up the shapes.

1 Click Create for Flowcharts
Flowcharts are useful just about everywhere, from the classroom to the boardroom. And although there are a ton of applications that you can use to create flowcharts, we believe Creately offers the best user experience for flow-charting on the web. Here’s a set of images that show you just how easy it is to use.

1 Click Create for Org Charts
The Click & Create buttons in organizational charts are just as easy to use. Creately automatically places a subordinate shape making it org charts faster than ever. Just click, position and place. No need for extra lines and connectors… neat.
