In this article, our principal goal is to get you familiarized with the mapping canvas, so you can get to building out your first funnel quickly and easily!
The canvas is where you are going to be spending a lot of your time mapping out your sales funnels, so it's super important that you understand how to navigate it, and all the features of the canvas itself.
One of the first steps to getting started with Funnelytics is creating at least one funnel inside a project.
Mapping your first funnel:
Watch this brief video to run you through mapping your first funnel on the canvas!
Here's a recap of what you will find on the Canvas:
Inside the canvas you will notice there are different folders on the left side bar.
Each folder on the left side bar corresponds to a different set of icons that can be used to place on the canvas, as follows:
The pages folder contains icons that would represent the different pages in your funnel. In each page you can customize the label, add a URL, generate a thumbnail preview of the page, and various other settings.
To learn more about page settings and how to use them, check out the following article on Page Settings.
Traffic icons represent where your traffic comes from. Whether that is Facebook, Google, an Email, or an Affiliate. In the settings, you can also find a place to change the label. For Pro Users: This is where you will input your UTM parameters.
The offline folder contains icons that represent the offline interaction that your customers have with you. Anything that happens offline is represented here.
Offline marketing interactions include anything from billboards, signs, and pamphlets, to calls and telemarketing.
Templates allow you to save your completed funnels for use on other projects. After saving your funnel as a template, it will appear in the templates folder. Just drag and drop the template onto your canvas to quickly display your saved funnel map.

At the top of the canvas, you'll see 3 buttons that say Numbers, Flow, and Forecast - for our Pro users, you can use these to analyze your funnel!
The Numbers button is used to understand and visualize how people flow through your pages, traffic sources, ads etc, across your marketing funnels. Once in analyze mode, you can view the people and referrers on a given page to learn and understand better what is happening on that page specifically.
Flow Mode displays dots on lines to visually convey how many people are going from step-to-step! You can do this by clicking the Flow Icon on the top lefthand corner of the canvas.
With Forecasting, you'll be able to predict how well your funnel will perform based on data that you input! This can be used to make better business decisions, set goals, and spot potential problems before they actually happen! To learn more, check out this article!
