Using Visio

Part of my work involves creating a variety of explanatory diagrams which are supported by the written word in my instructional texts. I document a large online database whose schema changes on a regular basis and being able to respond quickly to these changes and create and modify the many Entity Relationship Diagrams. Whilst there are other diagramming tools on the market, I have not come across many which come even close to the usability of Visio.

Pros

The capability to create complex Entity Relationship Diagrams with relative ease is a big plus.

Cons

This software is not a standard part of Microsoft Office 365 and therefore an extra cost. Whilst it is worth its price, it would be so much nicer if it was part of Office 365.

Visio - Mapeamento ideal de processos

A experiência geral é bastante positiva, o que me faz recomendar o Visio a pequena e grandes empresas para o respetivo mapeamento de processos de valor. O preço compensa a longo prazo, com a eliminação de atividades que não acrescentam valor aos processos.

Pros

O Visio apresenta diversas ferramentas úteis ao dia-a-dia das operações, revelando-se de fácil utilização e bastante intuitivo. Permite o mapeamento tanto de processos físicos como informação (eletrónica ou em formato papel).

Cons

O aspeto do Visio poderia ter um upgrade, bem como o layout de algumas ferramentas.

Reasons for switching to Visio

De modo geral, o mapeamento era feito através de slides do PowerPoint o que era bastante complicado e pouco intuitivo.

Visio leave much to be desired

Overall I give this product a 6/10. It has some great features like export options, vector graphics, great diagram component library. It fails in having a huge userbase, compared to other adobe software. If you are a patient person willing to learn, then visio is for you.

Pros

Best thing about this software is that it makes vector graphics. It is great in terms of pre-built diagram components, it really has a great library of icons/pre-made figures to choose form. I use it a lot to make electrical circuits and schematics for my journal papers. Annotation features are great and customizable. You also get high quality picture export options too.

Cons

Visio has a huge learning curve, it will take you a while to get used to using this software .Not many tutorials are available online either. Sometimes, the line connector feature is annoying in that it doesn't snap where you want it to. I think microsoft can do a better job in improving this software

Must Tool to Develop Comprehensive Flowchart

To prepare a practical, flexible, easy to make, easy to understand flowchart or organizational chart the ultimate choice, in most of cases, will be Microsoft Visio, an innovative way to visualize a business process. Visio enables to learn about organizational setup, flow of documentation, and procedures alongwith cause and effect diagrams, the more important is that the diagram is self explanatory for presentation purpose.

Pros

Being member of rich and widely used family of Microsoft applications, it is effectively configured and integrated with excel, word, powerpoint, teams, sharepoint, onedrive, etc. Microsoft Visio enables users to generate a basic to complex diagram or hierarchal modeling. Visio has all necessary features that are required for graphical presentation of a flowchart or organization chart. Apart from built-in features, there are many templates that can be easily modified according to your requirements.

Cons

Visio is not easy for new user particularly using at mobile, if a new user has to provide links by using arrow keys then he/ she will experience it as a tricky task, it not intuitive as well. Visio does not generate link leading recipient of the link to view diagram at any browser. Visio does not allow arrangement of diagram elements automatically, cropping of image is not allowed, usually arrows do not connect properly. To group or ungroup is not easy task, sometimes auto arrange feature returns errors.

Reasons for switching to Visio

Visio offers more advanced diagramming tools.
