Feb. 21: Microsoft Visio Pro training

An introductory training for Microsoft Visio Pro is scheduled 1:30-3:30 p.m. Friday, Feb. 21, in 306 Calvin.

About Microsoft Visio Pro

Microsoft Visio Pro is a common diagramming tool that enables the creation of vector graphics.

Some common examples include the following:

  • Flowcharts to describe work or research processes
  • Basic diagrams
  • BPMN (Business Process Model and Notation) diagrams (with built-in validation based on rule sets)
  • Database systems
  • Floor plans
  • Network designs
  • Data-created visuals (with uploaded Excel spreadsheets used in Visio templates from MS Visio Online and/or the Excel backstage)
  • Automapping of websites to three levels
  • And more

The visuals may be created manually and/or with data and/or through autocoding.

This software tool contains a variety of templates for various applications: network, software, flowcharts, education, business, database, floor plans, and others. Users may access collections of stencils, shapes, line tools, design themes, and layout grids.

There are higher-level functions in the Developer tabs, database integrations, auto-layout features, auto-mapping networks functionalities, and macro capabilities.

This session addresses how to get started with Visio Pro to communicate visually and with precision.
