Generate flowcharts on the fly based on text / notes 
Modified By Adrian M.  on 3/14/2016 9:47:14 PM)

Hi,

We just launched a new online diagramming tool that generates flowcharts based on text. As a BA, I always thought that doing diagrams with traditional tools was too long just because we need to format shapes, position or connect them. So I wanted a tool that allows to write down my ideas and generates a professional looking diagram for me. This is what I have decided to build with textografo. We are in beta and we would really like to get feedback from the BA community. Just go to textografo.com and create a (free) account. That would be great to know what you think about it. Thanks!

Julien,

Thanks for sharing. 

I went through the product evaluation and I think the tool has good potential. Here are some of my thoughts:

  • Pros:
    • Easy to Use
    • The tool seems like it could save time in creating diagrams once you get the hang of the commands
      • I especially like how the bridges are handled. 
  • Improvement Needed:
    • The text and grammar within the tool (as well as on the tool's website) needs to be cleaned up - as of now, it reads like the tool was created by someone who's primary language is not English. 
    • For the common user, there should be additional simple export options in addition to exporting to PNG (such as PDF)
    • I could not find a way to use a custom theme/coloring option 
    • The log-in page needs to be improved so it looks more legitimate. I almost did not try out the tool because I did not feel good about registering on an unclear log-in page. 

Feel free to reach out if you would like to discuss further.

I’ve heard “The End is Near!” for Business Analysts for almost 20 years.  Waterfall project management, with its need for formal requirements, is dead…a dinosaur…so 1990’s.  To be honest, that’s mostly true.  With the publishing of the Agile Manifesto in 2001 there was no need for a 2-inch-...
