Create professional diagrams to simplify complex information

Simplify complex information with professional diagrams you can create in just a few clicks. Visio makes diagramming simple – whether you want to quickly capture a flowchart that you brainstormed on a whiteboard, map an IT network, build an organizational chart, document a business process, or draw a floor plan.

Create professional diagrams quickly

  • Gain quicker access to frequently used tools, new and updated shapes and stencils, and improved and expanded themes and effects make it easier to create professional diagrams.
  • Access updated diagramming standards including Unified Modeling Language (UML) 2.4, Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) 2.0, and you can now publish both SharePoint 2010 and SharePoint 2013 workflows.
  • Work the way you want with improved touch support, including for Windows 8 and Visio Services in the new Microsoft SharePoint, either with Microsoft Office 365 or on your organization's servers.

Link diagrams to dynamic data

  • Make complex data understandable at a glance. Create diagrams that are more dynamic by linking shapes to real-time data, with an expanded set of supported sources.

Collaborate easily as a team on diagrams

  • Use new tools to simplify teamwork – work together on the same diagram at the same time and easily see reviewers' comments – in both Visio and Visio Services.
  • Share your diagrams with others through a browser, even if they don't have Visio installed through Office 365 or SharePoint.
