Although first announced back in October, i’d like to bring awareness to the following awesomeness coming from the Visio team. They are still looking for people to try out the new smart diagrams feature and provide valuable feedback:
Introducing early preview of smart diagrams from Visio for Windows
Do you currently spend hours connecting shapes, placing the shapes into the right Swim lanes to create the perfect layout? Looking to save time while creating your process diagrams from data every day?
With Visio’s smart diagrams feature, now you can automatically create a Basic Flowchart or Cross-Functional Flowchart from your process map in Excel, in no time. The process metadata you capture in Excel now gets stored in Visio shapes as shape data for you.
