Making an Online Flowchart with LucidChart | Productivity

LucidChart is an online tool that allows you to easily create flowcharts on your computer. The service offers free templates for editing mind maps and other illustrative layouts that help you study or organize a presentation at work.

Unlike solutions in Word or PowerPoint, the platform features automated functions that help you create a balanced layout without having to adjust detail by detail: just pick a template, add shapes and text, and paint your favorite color before sharing. Here's how to create browser flowcharts without installing anything.
