Hey guys, loving Prefect so far! Noticing that for simple pipelines flow schematic is pretty easy to follow but when the pipeline gets complex the schematic becomes too cluttered to follow intuitively. One of my favorite features in Airflow is the whole "flowchart" visualization of DAGs, are there any plans currently to develop a more intuitive flowchart type-ish diagram in the UI? Simplest use case would be to explain flows to managers or executives who like to follow simpler diagrams.

Hey @Heeje Cho, I’m not familiar with Airflow’s “flowchart” visualization but I guess to answer your question, yes, we certainly have big plans for visualization. Take a look at the radar view in orion

I'm actually looking for something simpler (although that radar viz looks cool). Something like this where it is easy to follow the logic and branching/mapping linearly.
