Once RFFlow is installed, you can open the above chart in RFFlow by clicking on relationship-map-template.flo.

To edit the text of a box or line, you can either double-click or right-click and choose "Edit Text" from the menu that appears. For example, you can double-click on each box in the blue Suppliers rectangle and fill in the name of a supplier. Then double-click on each line and replace the word "input" with the actual input from that supplier. Do this same thing for the customer boxes and the output lines. If there are any sub-groups in your company, double-click the sub-group boxes and type in the actual name. You can double-click on each line connecting the sub-groups and add the input or output.

To move boxes and lines, you just drag them. To size boxes and lines, you click on them and drag the handles. To change colors and other properties, right-click on the box and select Properties in the menu. To duplicate a box, right-click on it and choose Duplicate. To delete a box, right-click on it and choose Delete.
