Learn advanced functionality in Microsoft Visio.

Delivery format(s)
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.

To ensure your success in this course, you should have attended the Visio - The Essentials class or have the ability to create basic workflows and other common diagram types in Visio.


After completing this course, students will be able to:

• Enhance the look of drawings.
