How to create a workflow diagram online
Determine the audience for this workflow diagram and the state you want to show
Know who your workflow diagram is meant for and consider what state the workflow diagram should depict. You can choose to depict your current workflow process and/or a potential future process.
Define the start and end points
Initiate the workflow by adding a start symbol to a blank canvas or customizing the starting point in a Lucidchart workflow diagram template.
Add steps and connect shapes
Add a symbol for each step, using a line to connect it to the previous shape. Each line’s arrow should indicate the direction of the workflow.
Format your workflow diagram to finalize
Use conditional formatting to color-code steps or shapes, then add lanes and containers to group related steps together. Customize fonts, lines, colors, and more using the properties bar.
Collaborate, analyze, improve, and share
Collaborate with others in real time to stay on the same page, and then use presentation mode to showcase your workflow. Use one of our Lucidchart integrations to publish your work.
