It has helped us document complex logic flows
The DRAKAN editor makes it easy to design, document, communicate and verify workflows, algorithms and architectures.
It is web-based, so requires no installation and the learning curve is very low, you'll become productive immediately. Makes drawing diagrams fun. All the boring cores of keeping things aligned, the same size etc is completely automated. The forced structure helps organize thoughts and share ideas in an easily available format.
Cons: The initial version I used only had an explicit button to go into scroll-mode. So that was a little clunky, in my opinion. But I sent an idea of how to improve this feature by triggering it from a keyboard shortcut to the author. He responded very quickly and now the space bar can be used to quickly go in and out of scroll mode without moving the mouse away from the design area. :)

A mind map necessity, highly portable and very precise
Pros: DrakonHub allows me, as a content producer, to include elaborate diagrams, charts and graphs into my output. It makes my data more “readable” and less boring for the audience reading our webpage regarding our insurance company. DrakonHub can be easily maneuvered with. Stable and smooth operation and creation of mind maps. The availability of DrakonHub in mobile is a great addition to its advantages. I even use DrakonHub for personal purposes, like reminders or daily tasks.
Cons: It took awhile to understand on how to use DrakonHub since tutorial was not given. It would have been great if the buttons and processes were discussed prior product use.

Very useful for defining decision-making processes, user workflow and common use cases.
Comments: I should mention that the website is very well-organized and presents its contents well. The customer service platform appears solid and has multi-language support.
Pros: Its great that examples are provided in English, Norwegian and Russian. Those examples should serve as templates to help a user get started with some real projects. For the seriously technically-inclined people, there is some nice documentation about the language itself. It was fascinating to learn that the language originated from the control systems for the Buran spacecraft. I can see this software being useful to people across the spectrum of software development: product owners and business drivers, architects and project managers, as well as the developers themselves. Often some processes and workflows seem simple at the outset but really contain complex decision trees and confusion paths, which would be greatly aided by usage of DRAKON.
Cons: It might be useful to contain some "next steps" about how to translate the diagrams and flowcharts into functional software. This is asking a lot because there are so many languages and platforms.

DRAKON Editor Web review
Comments: We recorded the work processes, subordination and work processes of all employees.
Pros: facilitates training for new employees. there is a lot of clarity in the management of all processes, the processes that are created can quickly detect process management gaps
Cons: complicated program management while there is no management skill. It would be useful to have program management instructions and the possibilities of using all the icons, more examples of diagrams would be needed

A real great and easy tool to describe your software graphically in the Drakon way!
Pros: Easy to use, fast and stable. Even quick and dirty drawings get a perfect shape in minutes. The tool is smoothly pushing you to sort your punch of ideas in well ordered wired way.
Cons: It would be nice, if you could export your drawings to use it as import for any program language, at least as a program skeleton. The SVG graphs should be a little bit more clean. An import option for JSON, YAML, XML or so would be nice.
