How to use our database schema design tool
Select the ERD shape library and import
Use the ERD shape library to begin creating your database structure. Start from scratch or streamline the process by importing your schema from Salesforce or your DMBS of choice.
Determine the entities from your database
List out every step in your process from start to finish and arrange them in sequential order. Be sure to include inputs, outputs, individual roles needed, time durations, etc.
Identify the relationships between your entities and add any necessary attributes
Draw outlines and cardinalities between entities to indicate their relationships, then add necessary attributes associated with your entities.
Arrange, format, and collaborate
Once you've mapped your database, share it with others to get feedback on proposed changes and ensure it's correct. Rearrange and format shapes and lines as you see fit.
Export your database design back to your DBMS of choice
Export your database back into your DBMS using our export feature. Publish your diagram for others to easily reference using popular apps like Confluence, Jira, G Suite, Microsoft Office, and more.
