  5. As you create the business diagram, team members and colleagues can provide real-time feedback on changes or improvements using comments. Changes done to the diagram can be tracked and reverted with version history.

  6. Finalize the business diagrams and share them with multiple stakeholders in various image formats. Alternatively, you can also use an embed code to securely embed the diagram in any site, intranet, or app.
