It becomes very easy to create Flow chart in the later versions of Microsoft Office Suite by using the SmartArt features. You can do it in Word, Excel, or PowerPoint. Please follow the below steps.
Step 1: Click the “Insert” tab on the ribbon and choose “SmartArt”. Choose the Flow Chart that you like and then click the “OK” button. After you put in the data, you can always change to another type of Flow Chart if you find something that can convey your messages in a better way.
Step 2: Type the data in the text pane.
You can use the following commands to add, delete, move up, and move down the process text boxes. The commands are on the very left side of the ribbon.
Step 3: Format the shapes as you want. First right click on the shape that you want to format and then choose the appropriate properties (color, shape, 3-D format, etc.)
If you don’t like the way your Flow Chart looks, you can always change its shape by clicking on the current Flow Chart, then “Design” tab (when you see the “SmartArt Tools” menu) and choose another type as you want. Scroll up and down or press the “more” button to see more choices.
