Keep Flows Small

Is There a Maximum Flow Size?

Yes. For security and performance reasons, we have set a maximum flow size in ProcedureFlow.  The editor will warn you when a flow is approaching it's maximum size. Here are some things to think about as you are designing your flows.

User Experience

The heart of ProcedureFlow is all about  small hyperlinked flowcharts. When a flow gets too large, users have a lot to scroll through and can easily get lost on a page . That can lead to an increase in the amount of time it takes users to find the information they are looking for.


Every time a flow is saved, we process that data. The larger the flow, the longer the processing takes. In striving for the best possible user experience, you want to make sure that your pages save and load fast!

Our Recommendation

To keep your flows at a reasonable size, be sure to separate them into multiple flows and link them together.
