Ability to cross-link from one page to another to show relationshipsMarch 9, 2020 at 5:27pm
It would be helpful to be able to cross-link between screens that don't automatically fit in the hierarchical tree structure. This is similar to the user flow capability, but that seems more geared to documenting specific task-based flows. I would like to show simple relationships on the site map for the purposes of analysis and improvement. For example, I have a complex web app that includes an "edit record" screen that is accessible from six or seven different screens. It doesn't fit neatly in "one branch" of the site/app map tree (partly because our app has overly complex navigation, but that's another issue). I don't want to have to switch back and forth between a site map, which looks one way, and the user flows, which are visually different, to be able to communicate the fact that there are a half-dozen paths from different screens that take me to the one "edit record" screen. The ability to create associations - much like how you might link objects in Visio or Omnigraf would make it much easier to understand the site, it's primary nav paths, and it's secondary nav paths at the same time.

I have this same huge problem when I'm designing a new user flow and, inside it, I need to reference another flow. They don't offer us this excellent feature.. I use a different shape and I need to type the other flow name manually. So my team need to see the name on the first User Flow, then back to the main project and search for that referenced flow by its title. And then see the flow referenced in the other flow. Soooo boring...
