Wireframing tool that builds/exports flow diagram

over 2 years ago from , Lead UI/UX Designer @ Splash Damage

Hey guys,

So I'm on the hunt for new tools that can make my life easier, and one thing I constantly find myself doing is trying to keep UI flow diagrams and wirefames in sync as design changes are made.

Typically we use UI flow diagrams to summarise the user flow, and for engineers to use as a point of reference when designing the structure of the new feature, and it's important that these are kept in sync together.

Does anyone know of a tool that allows you to build wireframes visually, link them up Adobe XD-style, and use this logic to export a simple flow diagram without the extra effort?

    Hey Tom,

    You might want to have a look at Pidoco (www.pidoco.com), a prototyping tool I am working on. It allows you to individually build several screenflows for different use cases. The pages used in the screenflow are synced with the pages in the wireframe, so all design changes etc. made in the wireframe will be automatically updated in the screenflow.

    However, it doesn't automatically create these screenflows according to your wireframe, if that is what you were looking for. You have to indiviudally select and arrange all pages that you want to be included in the screenflow. Then, the links between the selected pages will be included and updated automatically.

    It also allows to share your projects with team members and collaborate simultaneously, so your engineers will always see the latest version of the screenflow. Exporting of screenflows is possbile in png format.

    I hope this helps, if you have any suggestions how to improve the feature, we are happy for any feedback.

      Thanks for the detailed reply, this is pretty much exactly what I was hoping to find - is the product cloud-only? Due to some client contractual things using cloud services generally are difficult to get approved.

        Yes, it is online-based, but all data is stored on German servers and meet the highest security and data protection laws. Additionally, it is possible to get it running on your own servers, if that is an opportunity for you.
