What's a tool for mapping out processes?

Normally I use a MindMap like Coggle.it or PowerPoint, but I want something a bit more flexible for mapping out certain processes, like a decision tree, or steps to complete something. Does anyone have a tool in mind that does that well? Xcode does that pretty well on the Main Story Board, but I want something that's not Xcode (as I'm not mapping out an iOS app!) Thanks community :)

    We typically map out processes in outline mode with infinite hierarchy first, then switch into Mind Map view. The editor is very powerful and structured, making it easy to organize and re-order things.

    I have used this and the interaction/design is awesome but it limits the number of projects you can do, after that you'd have to pay for it so...

    If you want to document online processes this tool is great. Takes a screenshot for each step and you can comment, edit, etc.. Great for creating guides, training employees, business processes.

    Our design head introduced me to Realtime board as a tool for mapping out processes - and I've used it to make decision trees and site maps. I love how collaborative it is as well - two people can work together. It's also great for mind mapping and brainstorming.

    I advise you should go for ConceptDraw Pro since it stands out as the best desktop app for its variety of business process templates - flowcharts.

    We recently added a BPM section https://softwareforprojects.com/... where you can map out and automate your processes. For a non-automated option, check out Exobrain.

  12. Has plenty of frameworks to choose from. Far nicer alignment options than PowerPoint. Negative is that you have to pay for it.

    Sketch library for user flows/content maps/annotations

    Matt D. Smith made this product
    I'm biased (because I made it) but from a designer's perspective this is my go to tool for mapping out high-level flows. Tons of pre-made components and blocks in a reusable library for Sketch and Figma.

    You can jot down your processes in a timeline/ threaded format and keep the links as a reference. For example: You can create tymline.co/penta-processes as the profile which contains all the processes for your team to refer and you create multiple process timelines like tymline.co/penta-processes/design, tymline.co/penta-processes/development etc

    A decision tree? You may try Edraw Max, which allows you to map right-hand or left-hand side tree with easy connectors. By the way, the software can also be used on Mac and Linux.
