  • Posted to Ask DN: Do you create flowcharts in Sketch?, Aug 21, 2016

    Would be great in Sketch, but reality is Sketch isn't for this. I use https://www.lucidchart.com/ and it is purpose built for what you need. It's the best thing for flow charts IMO

    I left it out of the original comment to not confuse anyone but the product is Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu and the 'sections' are very clear and don't cross over. If there are items that could be done under two sections the item is repeated as a separate instance in each.

    RE users not noticing: they will be pretty apparent in things like graphs and charts that show your split of activity between all sections. So i.e. one pie chart will show how you have split your activity across each section by slicking up the chart with proportional sections represented by colour.

    At the moment I feel like I do need to have this many colours - I wish I could simplify and maybe I can somehow, but at the mo I'm trying to figure out how to represent this info the best.

    Thanks!

    Yeah I was wondering around accessibility - especially as the 12 colour palette is not full of contrast.

    I will try and explore symbols etc. also, just at the moment we've gone down the colour route as it was the simplest way we thought we could consistently communicate throughout the product.

    After using it I can confirm.... this rocks! So slick, and it allows me to see people's honest reactions to my experiences. Go Marvel!
