Tasks that either swimlane can do


Badge +1

For the first half of my business process map, I have a set of tasks that either lane can perform. How do I make that clear in my LucidChart swimlane map? I thought about color coding or simply duplicating the tasks in both lanes. Duplicating makes it look quite complicated, i.e. many more steps when it actually isn’t.

Hey @MichelleBrody!

It’s an interesting challenge to visualise. I think your idea of color-coding is a good one. In this situation I usually do something like the below. Keeps it clean but also shows the options.

Hope this helps, but let us know if you need more options or this doesn’t fit what you need.

I like that! Thank you. How do I create space between the swimlanes? The lucidchart I created doesn’t have space between lanes.

Great - glad to hear it.

So in the ‘Containers’ panel on the left hand side, you should see a single swim lane (note: This is different to the ‘Flowchart’ swim lane that you might have used before…?). This one is the landscape swim lane, but there is also a portrait version.

Once you add it, you will also see a panel where you can change colours etc.
