Happy Thanksgiving! This week we introduce extended wireframing capabilities, the Community Library, ERD tool and Data flow notation & shapes, and for your viewing pleasure, some fun flowcharts set to music.

UI and UX design, together at last!

We aim to provide web and software developers broad visualization tools to enable quicker and smoother development. We've now rounded out our offering with a world-class wireframing tool.

Most wireframing tools do a good job of making it easy for teams to work on the design and layout of visual elements. But good designers know that designing a great website takes more than static images in order to demonstrate how elements work together to produce the best user experience possible. That’s why we’re introducing wireframing tools that take the job of the UI and UX designer to the next level. With Lucidchart, designers have the ability to actually demo a working wireframe by creating clickable hotspots that link to different view states within their documents.

Community Library

Diagrams are meant to be shared. So we’ve made it easier than ever to share, view and use diagrams that were created by other Lucidchart users. Stuck on how to visually represent something? Need inspiration? Have something funny to share? Want a good laugh? Or have a nice diagram that you want to share with others? Then the Lucidchart Community Library is the place to start. The Community Library can be accessed through the editor by clicking on the Lucidchart diagram icon at the top right of the editor.

ERD and Data Flow

Entity-relationship diagrams (ERD) have been a common request and now we’re delivering. Lucidchart’s ERD tools include all of the major notation types: Crow’s Feet, Bachman, Martin, and UML. To enable ERD notation, click on manage libraries at the bottom left of the editor and check the box for ERD.
