Basic Flowchart - House Painting
This flowchart shows the basic steps needed in painting a house.

Each flowchart has one starting point and one or more ending points that are drawn with a rounded rectangle or oval. Steps, actions, or tasks are drawn with rectangles. It helps to use verbs in describing the steps. Decisions are drawn with diamonds with labels at the exits. The arrows show the order the steps are taken. The shapes in a flowchart are often numbered to make it easier to refer to them. RFFlow allows you to automatically number shapes. Click on Tools, Number Shapes.
