You can draw your flowcharts on Creately either from scratch or using one of our premade templates.
Creating a flowchart from scratch
By creating a flowchart from scratch, you have the freedom to draw in any direction and start with any shape of your choice. Using the Plus Create button which appears once you select a shape will help you add your next shape on the flowchart with one click conveniently saving time.
Creating your own flowchart
You can add shapes quickly by using the Tab key.
To add shapes quickly, you can use the Tab key to open a dropdown menu with different shape options and then select the desired shape. Pressing the Enter key while holding down the shift key will add a new shape of the same type as the one selected.
Using shortcut keys to create a flowchart
Creating a flowchart using templates
Alternatively, you can also create a flowchart by adding an already existing template to the workspace. Creately offers flowchart templates for multiple use cases across industries. This will help you get started instantly with your flowchart reducing the time required to add shapes.
Using a template
Note: Whether you use a template or start from scratch, you have the freedom to customize your flowchart to suit your needs and preferences on colors, fonts and much more!
