Octopus.do is bigger than you think and goes beyond creating sitemaps

Octopus is a fast and clean sitemap builder with website and content development planning features.

Visual sitemap builder

Create your visual site map or app structure using our interactive flow, taking full advantage of drag-and-drop. Dive deeper with page content blocks that make your structure simple to design, handle, and discuss.

Collaborate on your projects in real-time

Share your work with teammates or clients, add comments to keep things clear and in one place. Each comment triggers an email notification to keep every collaborator on track.

Easily Invite new folk to work on a shared project in real-time. Every change you introduce into a sitemap is instantly picked up by your every teammate. 

Organize page content β“…

Organize your page content by highlighting content blocks with color. Develop your color codes and apply them to your projects.

Add a legend to your custom scheme to easily convey color meanings to your team or clients. Always be on one page: define precise descriptions of individual colors to keep things clear.

We suggest coloring the completed blocks green to track your team’s progress on website development or content planning. You can also assign unique colors to specific page elements, say, pick a high-contrast color to highlight your HTML meta tags.

 Add notes & descriptions β“…

Comment your work directly in the sitemap, add notes and block descriptions. Define page content, take meeting notes, and prepare for stand-ups.

Dark theme 

Switch to the dark theme during night shifts or if you simply prefer so. Dark mode can reduce power usage for OLED screens and improve visibility due to higher contrast. Come over to the dark side 🌚

Design for web and mobile β“…

Octopus is case-friendly. Switch your previews to mobile when building for phones or tablets to clearly communicate the type of project you’re up to.

Brand or personalize your designs with images β“…

Enliven your page designs with images. Map out your website or app structure and add visuals to better convey your ideas and vision.

Intuitive project management β“…

Octopus.do provides simple project management for your website development and content production flows. Set the production time in hours for each site page or app screen using our estimation panel. Then, our estimates table sums everything up and allows specifying hourly rates, adding extra project stages, and calculating overall costs.

Duplicate your projects and pages β“…

Every project you create gets stored in your profile. Pro plan users can also make project duplicates and create an unlimited number of sitemap archives.

Create project drafts or templates and duplicate them in one click. The same goes for pages: create a template page once and easily replicate it across your sitemap. Focus on your project structure, not copying and pasting things.

Ghost & Page frames β“…

Keep large sitemaps clear. Organize your website sections in a simple visual manner. For instance, add section names to differentiate site areas like Member and Public.

Categorize your layout elements with page frames, use them to mark pop-ups, lightboxes, and page states.

Unlimited site sections β“…

Prototype separate website or app areas in a single sitemap. Get as vast as you want. We don’t limit the number of sections.

Export your sitemaps to PDF and PNG β“…

Have your sitemaps exported as PDF or PNG. Prepare your material for printing, publishing, or offline meetings. Attach time estimates when needed.

All-round drag and drop 

Swap your content blocks around a page or pages around your sitemap in the blink of an eye.
