Data flow diagrams
More commonly used by software engineering teams, data flow diagrams track how data flows through a process or a system. Instead of focusing on the steps that people must perform and the decisions they must take, these diagrams simply visualize what happens to the data over its lifecycle.
While there are no control flows, decisions or loops, data flow diagrams do provide information about the inputs and outputs, and the process itself. Labels may be added to indicate what data is transferred between processes, data stores and states.
To create a data flow or context diagram, you’ll need to enable the shape library. Click on More Shapes at the bottom left, enable the Data Flow Diagram shape library in the Software section, and click Apply.
