New Improvements: Sub-Charts and Processes, OneDrive for Business, and More

You asked and we listened. Here are some of the most requested improvements now available in the latest update to SmartDraw:

  • You can automatically add sub-charts, sub-processes, and sub-maps to org charts, flowcharts, and mind maps
  • Connect and save files to OneDrive® for Business and SharePoint®
  • Drag-and-drop to organize your files and much more

The latest updates to SmartDraw ensure that it continues to be the most powerful and easy diagramming tool you've ever used.

Sub-Charts, Sub-Processes, and Sub-Maps

The new sub-chart feature lets you break down complex diagrams into more managable components.

When you're ready to add a new sub component to your flowchart, org chart, or mind map, you can click a button on the SmartPanel that creates a new page where you can continue your diagram. This new sub-chart is just another page in your document and it is automatically linked to the original diagram.

For instance, if you want to link to another department and thus a separate org chart, starting at a specific employee at the director or VP level, just select the specific employee's shape and click "Create Sub-Chart" in the SmartPanel.

This opens a new page within your file where you can build the org chart for the department. You can do this for however many sub-charts that you want. Click on the link within the shape to navigate between the original org chart and the sub-charts.

Easily add sub-processes to a complicated flowchart to make it easier to follow and add sub-maps to a mind map to clearly index hubs of information, meeting agendas and project tasks. It's a very powerful tool.
