I've started numbering the wires and creating a corresponding list and description of the routing, but having a visual would be nice.
I've found when I come back a year (or more!) later, I sometimes look at the descriptions that seemed so succinct when I did the wiring, and say....HUGH?
Yea, descriptions can be a bit hard to figure out in the future. Especially by a future owner. I was working on the panel at our house, and well I am sure the previous owner knew very well what room was Steve's but I have no idea at all! I could figure out Ma and Pa that was not too bad, but the kids names left me plugging in a radio and switching off breakers (and rebooting everyone's PC in the process!) till I heard the radio turn off. Turns out Steve for some reason seemed to live in one corner of the living room?!?!

I think Visio or any flow chart app should work to do what you want.
