How to make a flowchart

  1. Open a page in Canva – Kicking off your design is simple. Log into your account if you’re already a user. If not, download Canva for desktop or mobile, launch the app or website in your browser, find the flow chart maker page and start creating your flow chart in a few seconds.
  2. Select a ready-made template – Choose one of Canva’s ready-made flow chart templates by clicking on the template and bringing up the template on your page. Use the search box to filter for theme, color, mood and more. Simply click on the template to bring it onto your page and start designing.
  3. Browse professionally designed features – Canva’s flow chart templates come with a range of backgrounds, illustrations and graphics. Add shapes and placeholders for your text by selecting them from the left-hand side, then rearranging them on your page. Get creative with fonts and color schemes.
  4. Experiment with layout – Customize your design by shifting elements from one side of your page to the other, swapping circles for boxes, adjusting the size of the shapes and finding more arrows and lines in the elements section. Use the Animate feature to control the way your flow chart appears in a presentation.
  5. Download, share or print – Print your flow chart onto a poster, flyer, trifold brochure, infographic or even a T-shirt. Share online on your website, Facebook, Slack, LinkedIn, or just about any other social media platform you can think of. If your flow chart is part of a presentation, you can embed it in your slides.

What is a flowchart?

A flowchart is a diagram that shows the steps in a process. Flowcharts are often used for training, documenting and planning. They can also be useful for decision making. They often use arrows to illustrate how one step leads to another.

Use a flowchart when you want to explain the steps in a process with someone else – such as someone that you’re training in for a job. They’re useful in presentations and reports, too.

Flowcharts are related to process charts. Process charts differ because they use a set of specific symbols to indicate the different steps in a process.
