Flowcharts Explained

Flowcharts are an excellent tool when it comes to the aspect of diagrammatic representation. Not only does it simplify the whole aspect of a problem but it leads to a step-by-step solution to a problem.

When it comes to the real world, flowcharts are the ideal tool to design, evaluate, document or even supervise a process across many different fields.

Flowchart Symbols Explained

Drawing a flowchart is simple enough, but for them to be universally understood you have to follow certain standards. So it is very important to use the right symbols in your flowchart.

Check out our flowchart symbols page to learn about all the standards flowchart symbols you can use in your flowchart. There's more to flowcharts than processes, decision and terminators. Fortunately for you, our flowchart tool has all the standard flowchart symbols grouped into a library.
