Use a visual flowchart to map out your website before building it. Use easy flowchart software to create stunning flowcharts quickly.

Introduction to Flowcharts

Flowchart is a really useful tool in decision-making by giving a step-by-step solution to a given problem. It's an essential type of diagram to design and document complicated processes. Like other types of diagrams, they help visualize what is going on and thereby help the viewer to understand a process and perhaps also find flaws, bottlenecks, and other less-obvious features within it.

Flowcharts for Website Design

It is necessary to map out a site before actually building it. One option to do this is the flowchart.

Flowcharts offer a visual representation of how different web pages and functions within the site fit and work together step by step. Generally, pages will be represented by rectangles and links by lines, but you can add other symbols into the flowchart to indicate decision paths, external links, or CGI code. The advantage of giving a simple outline is that you can show relationships between pages that more accurately reflect hyper textual content.

You can also draw wireframe or sitemap for this purpose. Regardless of which option you adopt while creating your site map, you should label each individual webpage within your site with its own unique ID and include this on the map.
