Visio Master Class

Presented by: Scott Helmers

Do you use Visio to create flowcharts but wonder whether there’s a better way to accomplish what you need to do? Want to get the better of those lines that seem to have a mind of their own? Add data and hyperlinks so you can create content-rich process maps that become the central repository for all process knowledge? Build BI dashboards in Visio using data in a database? Share maps with people who don’t have Visio without creating PDFs?

In this session, you’ll learn the most valuable tips and tricks from the guy who wrote the book (three actually!) about Visio.  

Learning Objectives:

  • Use Visio more efficiently
  • Uncover less obvious but powerful Visio features
  • Visualize data with automatically updated icons and shape colors
  • Create Business Intelligence dashboards
