To begin creating your flowchart in Google Docs, you start by creating a new Google Docs document and then selecting the Insert menu. From the menu, select Drawing to gain access to a window that contains a variety of tools you can use to generate shapes that you can rapidly incorporate into your drawing as needed.
Flowchart Designer is a great app for mac to try first. You can choose from basic, equation, rectangle, and flowchart objects. Just pick one and then drag and drop it onto the canvas. Insert duplicate objects by double-clicking a blue arrow and to add a connector, just drag the blue circle to another object. You can pop in text easily for all shapes and include labels for connectors.
Pencil is another cool flowchart app for Mac that comes directly from the company’s website. You will see a nice clear app interface and canvas to work with as soon as you open it. There is a complete set of flowchart objects, but for doing even more with the app, you can use web elements, widgets, and mobile stencils.
Flow Chart Definition. A flowchart is a graphic representation of how a process works, showing, at a minimum, the sequence of steps. A flowchart is a diagrammatic representation that illustrates the sequence of operations to be performed to get the solution to a problem. It can be seen from the definition that a flow always accompanies with business or transaction. Not all of the flows, however, are appropriate to be expressed by flowcharts, unless these flows are based on some fixed routines and stable links. Here is an example of the algorithm flowchart.
The rectangle symbol is your go-to symbol. It represents any step in the process flow you’re diagramming and is the workhorse of the flowchart diagram. Give it a lump of sugar and it will love you forever.
Microsoft Word provides built-in tools for creating and arranging different types of flowcharts. You can create your own flowchart by using different shapes and SmartArt. When working with shapes in any Office application, it’s always useful to use gridlines to make sure everything is sized and placed correctly.
