    Hey Designer News,

    Just a few months ago, we launched Overflow - The world’s first user flow diagramming tool tailored for designers. We’re super excited about all the reactions in the community and would like to thank you all for all your love, feedback and suggestions.

    On launch and during Overflow’s private and public beta, we only integrated with Sketch, but as of today, we’re super thrilled to let you know that you can start syncing your Figma designs with Overflow! Woop Woop! (more integrations coming soon).

    So to all the Figma lovers out there, try it out and let us know what you think. We’re happy to answer any question you may have. So ask away

      Overlflow looks very polished for a beta, and I love the design on the arrows connecting the screens but what's the advantage of using Overflow versus doing this in natively in Figma? I feel like if your design every changes it'd be more efficient to create your arrows and prototype in Figma instead of need to resync changes each time.

        Overflow is a user flow diagramming tool with which you can create and effectively present your user flows to your stakeholders.

        Creating a meaningful and readable user flow has a lot more to it, than just connecting the screens together. The better designed the user flows, the easier it is for the audience to understand the user journey and therefore the more constructive the feedback they will give.

        Figma is a design tool and links are added to build a prototype. Overflow actually complements Figma by bringing over the links you created so that you don't have to redo them and once inside Overflow you can customize them as connectors: stylize, add labels, rearrange, etc..

        With Overflow, user flows can be shared and presented, exported/printed to PNG/PDF, and we often see them being used as part of documentation and as a point of reference for product teams.
