What are your recommendations for free flowchart software?
I want to create a flowchart to show a process. What is a modern software? There are only 8 steps. Presentation as a simple easy to follow chart are key.
yEd is pretty nice for simple things, and has some good automatic layout functions. If maximum compatibility is a concern, then Visio is probably a better option, but it's Windows-only (whereas yEd is cross-platform, and open source).
I've used Pencil a fair amount a couple of years ago and found it nice looking but clunky to use. That may have changed between then and now.
Hope this helps!
I always prefer Visio but it is not free :). I also used yEd and it was pretty simple.
If you're using Chrome, Gliffy Diagrams is pretty cool: https://chrome.google.com/webstore/detail/gliffy-diagrams/bhmicilclplefnflapjmnngmkkkkpfad
Inkscape is free, and runs on Windows, OS X and Linux
Another free option is yEd
Or how about Pencil Project
Cacoo has a free version
LucidChart isn't free but starts at $3.33/month, which isn't that much more ;-)
Then again if you only have an occasional requirement, you may be better off using a slide presentation application such as PowerPoint or Apple Keynote.
My personal preference is Visio but it is definitely not free. You could use Power Point.
see this list - it has some good options http://listoffreeware.com/list-of-best-free-flowchart-software-for-windows/
Even though I am a big fan of Open Software I played a bit with inkscape and for my personal needs I found it not mature enough. After several different tests I finally found Cacoo. Cacoo is quick, easy and has all the features you would need. The free version has limits, but, quite frankly, the pro version is less than 5 USD/month so I would strongly suggest it.
I would suggest Power Point, since it will help with your sales presentation...
