Hey Product Hunt! 👋 We’re super excited to introduce Overflow, the world’s first user flow diagramming tool tailored for designers. We set out to reinvent how user flow diagramming should be done, the right way and that is why we’re building Overflow. Overflow is a powerful tool that integrates and syncs seamlessly with the most popular design tools to allow designers to create beautiful user flow diagrams. It gives designers and product managers the flexibility to present their ideas like a maestro, by navigating between their screen designs comfortably and focusing on the details when needed. Overflow will be publicly available in just a few weeks, but you can sign up for early access to our beta and be one of the first to experience Overflow. 🙏 Questions or feedback? We'd love to hear from you. Cheers!

@savvaszortikis thank you! ;)

@alexispiperides Sounds great! Definitely something I could see myself using, as a designer ^^

@alexispiperides can you summarise the benefits of overflow + sketch versus sketch’s inbuilt flow tool?
Alexis Piperides
Maker
@daniel_oertli The latest Sketch update offers features to build rapid prototypes. Overflow is a desktop tool that allows you to create user flows and style your connectors as you see fit and present them in a playable way. Overflow supports the new Sketch features and goes a step further to allow you to customize the look and feel of the connectors, remove the 'unnecessary' connectors, apply device skins and more.

@alexispiperides looks amazing!!!

👏👏👏 it's what we are waiting for! A tool to build and share storyboards/user-flows more efficiently. Please, don't do the same mistake of all other prototyping tools which think that we only design for mobile. We also do web, desktop app, TV app and more.

@brnltn We definitely haven't forgotten about you! Overflow takes all types of devices into account.

@brnltn you are right, this is mind-blowing, I was WOWing from the beginning of the video until the end

@brnltn @hesperiashimo It's really encouraging to see your reactions. We're eager to see how Overflow will boost your workflow!
Graeme Fulton
looks very clever! I noticed in the video, when the flow is in presentation mode, it looks like you can also interact with the prototype at each stage of a flow? is that a feature too?
Alexis Piperides
Maker
@graeme_fulton Yes, that's exactly how it works!
Elia Morling
I am curious how you would describe your product in relation to Invision?
Stefan Mansson
Maker
@tribaling Hey Elia! The primary use of Overflow is for creating & presenting captivating user flows. One of the presentation modes is a click-through rapid prototype.
Marlon Wayne
Beautiful and simple. I'm looking forward to trying this out with my team!

@jang_photo Hey there Jang! We're as excited as you are! Thanks for spreading the love.
Craig Phares
This is exactly what we're looking for! We currently do these types of user flows by hand, and it is TEDIOUS! User flows are so important to grasp the big picture of a project. So excited to try this out :)
Stefan Mansson
Maker
@craigphares We feel you Craig, it's tough. We're as excited to put Overflow in your hands to end that!

@craigphares Hey Graig :) and that is exactly why we're building Overflow.
James Dory
Looks promising. When I true to request an early beta, it reports back problem contacting the server.
Stefan Mansson
Maker
@haitianwatcher Hi James, thanks! Are you still experiencing the issue?
James Dory
Okay. I am in. I had to use a different browser. Thank you. Can't wait to try it.
Stefan Mansson
Maker
@haitianwatcher Great! We've had some reports of some connectivity issues, glad you could make it through.

Very clean! Excited to get in and test it out. The current process of user flows is so tedious.
Stefan Mansson
Maker
@amandasabreah Hey Amanda, we're really excited to release Overflow to solve that exact problem, glad it'll be of use!
Nathaniel Blackburn
What platforms will it be available on?
Stefan Mansson
Maker
@itsnblackburn Hi Nathaniel, Overflow will be available for macOS.
Nathaniel Blackburn
@animify Sad but predictable :(
Stefan Mansson
Maker
@itsnblackburn Don't worry, we plan on supporting Windows in the future. Unfortunately, it won't be as soon :(
Nathaniel Blackburn
@animify I respect that, thanks for considering other platforms.
Nils Be
@itsnblackburn @animify this sounds great, but i got a additional question :) does it work without a "cloud option"? We are working for companies not allowing anything to be stored in the cloud.
Stefan Mansson
Maker
@nilsb Hi Nils, great question! Everything is stored offline, as Overflow is an offline desktop app. You can just share your file within the team without the need to upload it to the cloud. Hope this is the info you’re looking for!
Nils Be
@animify YES. that sounds just like something we could/would love. I assume that there is an import option from different other Tools? (Sketch, PS, IL ... ?)
Stefan Mansson
Maker
@nilsb That’s awesome! Correct, we’re starting off with Sketch for now but we’ll be integrating with other design tools shortly after.
Steve Harry
Awesome app, I will use it soon.
Stefan Mansson
Maker
@steveharrry Hey Steve, thanks for the kind words!
