Flowchart creation — Demo video

As we noted previously, one of the most practical ways to illustrate some cyclic process is to create a flowchart. Also, usually it's the quickest way. We have tested the speed of making a simple flowchart in Grapholite by untrained user. The entire process of diagram creation was recorded as a screencast and it took less than 9 minutes. It's a good result for the user without experience. Moreover, he spend a bit of time looking at the original chart from time to time and attempting to make the diagram nice by changing default colors and positions of elements on the canvas. Also, a lot of performed operations (as seen in the video below) were non-optimal and even redundant  it's possible to do the same stuff more efficiently, e.g. using bulk selection, etc.

So, we speeded up a procedure of entering text captions and reduced some pauses. It resulted as a 4 minutes video, which is yet so slow that you can carefully trace each singe step. Even after we added a sound track into this video, it is still boring long. That means: being more experienced in using the application you could be more productive! But four minutes is already excellent.

We have gone further in speeding up the video and got the final result  1.5 minutes long. It's too fast to achieve in real life, but it's good enough to make the following fun demo!

Note: This video it is best viewed in full screen mode.


This version is a bit fast to catch all the nuances. In oder to get detailed "true" demonstration of Grapholite on the example of this diagram, you can watch the 4-minutes version.

And don't limit yourself to just watching the demo, download Grapholite and try it for free!
