Just a single click and the software does the job for you. The flowchart generated by Excel Flowchart 1.0 is neatly laid out in a new excel spreadsheet. You can even copy steps from a normal text document or Microsoft word and paste those steps in the worksheet and the software will use those steps to create a new flow chart.

Excel Flowchart 1.0 ensures that your flowcharts follow good flowcharting principles. The shapes are labeled neatly and are automatically aligned to grid which means that you can easily move around and reposition your steps without ‘snapping’ anything.

Once you’ve entered the steps of the flowchart, all you need to do is to click a button. The result is a near instantaneous flowchart with all your steps and connections properly laid out in a new worksheet.
