Customize and complete diagrams quickly

Customize professional-looking diagrams using a rich set of effects and themes and apply a completely different look to your design in just a few clicks.

Perform common diagramming activities (change shape, auto align and position, or duplicate and reorder pages) with an intuitive experience while preserving the metadata and connections of the shapes.

Bring diagrams to life with data linking

  • Visualize real-time data in the context of an organizational structure, IT network, manufacturing plant, or complex business processes to obtain the whole picture. Link Visio shapes to multiple data sources including Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Excel Services, Active Directory, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft SQL Azure, and Microsoft SharePoint Lists and Business Connectivity Services.
  • Reveal patterns and meaning in your data with data graphics, such as vibrant icons, symbols, colors, and bar graphs.
  • Get an always-up-to-date view of your data by keeping your diagram connected to the data source, so that your shape formatting will automatically update to reflect any changes in the underlying data.
  • Take advantage of the new one-step connectivity with Excel table and swap data graphics to your preference with one click.

Define, enhance and democratize processes efficiently

Document processes with the standard notation of your choice. With over 20 process templates, Visio offers a one-stop solution of process types—BPMN 2.0, SharePoint workflow, value stream mapping, and EPC.

Take advantage of an intuitive experience of sub-process creation and drive cross team synergy.

Check diagrams using built-in or customizable validation rules to ensure that diagrams are constructed in accordance with general diagramming best practices, industry standards or compliance needs.

Use Visio Services in Office 365 to share and communicate your processes visually across the enterprise, or to monitor process activities using live data connectivity.

Collaborate easily as a team on diagrams

  • Enable others to add comments to a diagram or a shape from virtually any device, whether through Visio or through a browser using Visio Services (requires SharePoint or Office 365). Get visual indicators of what shapes others are working/commenting on and easily sync diagrams when saving.
  • Streamline teamwork and reduce the risk of errors by allowing two or more people to work on the same diagram in a single file at the same time.
  • Get immediate clarification on feedback by initiating an instant messaging (IM) conversation or audio/video call with reviewers right from within Visio. (Requires a compliant IM application, such as Microsoft Skype for Business or Microsoft Lync.)

Communicate one version of truth—through a browser

  • Share your diagrams for broader consumption through a browser, even with people who don't have Visio installed—through Visio Services in Office 365.
  • As your underlying data refreshes, your diagrams are refreshed in the browser.
