Use Sub-trees For Tackling The Trickiest Trees

Have you had trouble developing intricate, multi-step trees? Is maintaining an easy flow for your users throughout a complex decision process a challenge? Are you having issues scaling your trees up to accommodate more users and use cases?

If you know you’re going to have a large project ahead of you, planning is crucial. You’ll want to break up your larger tree into individual threads and themes. Once they’re broken up, you can refine the smaller pieces until they’re perfected, and then create discrete, small to medium sized trees. Finally, once your sub-trees are ready and working properly by themselves, you can use Tree Nodes to connect them into your finished, mega-Zingtree.

While in the planning stages of complex decision trees, many users find these sub-trees occur naturally. So pause your active tree development (just for a minute) in Wizard or Designer, make an outline of your tree and its constituent sub-trees.

Try using sub-trees for your most intricate trees today.
