Microsoft Visio Advanced

Microsoft® Visio® stands out among similar applications because of its unique ability to draw a wide variety of diagrams, flowcharts, workflows, and organization structures—anything that can be represented by shapes connected by lines. Most importantly, these shapes can be rearranged and with corresponding lines remaining intact. Visio has improved over the years as features common among Microsoft® Office applications have been added. Today, Visio is well integrated with other members of the Office family as well as Microsoft's cloud-based services. This greatly enriches the sharing and publishing of Visio drawings. In Microsoft® Visio®: Part 1, you learned the basic skills needed to create and modify various Visio drawings. In Microsoft® Visio®: Part 2, you will learn about more advanced features—making you a more efficient and effective Visio user.
