On Wednesday, May 21, 2014

Visio 2013 features a redesigned program to help its users create more intuitive diagrams. It includes fresh and updated stencils and shapes, and improved themes and effects. It has a coauthoring feature for easier teamwork. It makes your diagrams dynamic by linking real-time data to shapes. You can then share your work with others on browser-based SharePoint, a Visio Service.

MS Visio Professional 2013 includes all functions of Visio Standard 2013. Aside from the updated shapes, it also has modernized styles and templates. Modernized stencils are adapted for engineering and business diagrams. It also includes process diagrams that include Business Process Models, floor plans and maps, database and software diagrams, and network diagrams. You can rapidly capture a flowchart, map a network, build a chart, document business processes, or draw floor plans. Team collaboration is also better as it includes the ability to allow several people to cooperate on one diagram simultaneously.

The easy way to Create and Share Professional Versatile Diagrams

By Ivy Paloma

On Thursday, April 10, 2014

For many years, I have been using Microsoft Office Visio for work related projects. I can say that it is one of the great tools to make amazing diagrams. One of the key features that I find beneficial is being able to readily use the tools that I access all the time. Other enhancements that were added include new stencils, improved effects, themes and additional shapes.

When working as a team, you can easily manage the task at hand because of the tools incorporated in this new version. I can immediately give and receive feedback from any members of the group through the reviewer comments. Each of the team can provide information needed for the progress of the project. It will make the work done in the least amount of time.

I also recently found this tool called SharePoint that helped me share my work with people who do not have Visio installed in their PC. They can just view the diagrams through the web browser. My diagrams look professionally done when created with Microsoft Office Visio. If you want to check out this program, make sure that you are using Windows 7 or Windows 8 as your operating system.

Pros

  • It has a complete chart edition
  • Provides an impressive platform for custom drawing solutions

Cons

  • Lots of tools to learn
