Thanks to Edraw Flowchart Maker, creating flowchart with various symblos has never been easier.
An easy way on how to create flowchart using flowchart symbols will be introduced in following article.
Standard Flowchart Symbols and Their Usage
Flowcharts generally add symbols, such as connectors, rounded box, circle, etc together, which are usually used to represent how a process works, showing, at a minimum, the sequence of steps.
- Rounded box - is used to represent an event which occurs automatically.
- Rectangle or box - most frequently used symbol, represents an event that is controlled within the process.
- Diamond - shows a decision point in the process. Generally, the statement in the symbol will require a `yes' or `no' response and branch to different parts of the flowchart accordingly.
- Circle - demonstrates a point at which the flowchart connects with another process.
