How to make a flowchart online
Gather information and consult with stakeholders
Identify which process you want to define in a flowchart, and determine the start and end points. Bring together the key players involved to brainstorm and outline the necessary steps.
Select a template or open a blank document
Choose one of Lucidchart’s many templates, and simply fill in the appropriate data in the relevant shapes. Or, start with a blank canvas and create your flowchart online from scratch.
Drag and drop flowchart shapes
Click and drag the shapes you want from the shape library and drop them anywhere on the canvas. Simply click a shape to add text to it, and use the available formatting options to customize shapes, colors, and text.
Connect the shapes in the proper sequence
Hover your cursor over any shape to see four white dots outlined in red. Simply click one of these dots and drag a line or an arrow to connect to the next shape. Click to add text directly on the line, and format line styling from the properties bar.
Share the flowchart, analyze, and collaborate on improvements
Sequentially arrange tasks and decision points, and then share the flowchart with stakeholders so they can analyze, make comments, edit, and improve the diagram before presenting or publishing.
