Site Flows V/s User Flows A site flow is like looking at a map of the territory. The map shows you a bird’s eye-view of everything, and gives you a general direction of where you can go. This high level view allows you to feel the size and complexity of a site. VS A user flow is like looking at directions from point A to point B. You can see which routes to take, where to turn and the miles it takes to get there. These specifics help you get to your destination with efficiency. Site flows also give you a clear picture of the navigational hierarchy. You get a glimpse of the breadth and depth of navigation. If a navigational path gets too deep, you can streamline it. If the navigation gets too broad, you can merge relevant pages. VS User flows also help developers understand how the system interacts with user behavior. The system needs to respond to the user when they make errors and do actions. Developers can view all the details and specifics of an interaction on a user flow.

VS User flows also help developers understand how the system interacts with user behavior. The system needs to respond to the user when they make errors and do actions. Developers can view all the details and specifics of an interaction on a user flow. Flows aren’t just for designers to look at. They’re a way to share the site vision with everyone on your team.
