A Visio diagram is a great way to illustrate a process, a timeline, a design, or other business information. In Microsoft Office Visio Professional 2007, you can analyze how a process or other area is actually performing by connecting data to the shapes in your diagram. You can also add different visual effects based on the data values. For example, you can link sales data from an Excel workbook to the shapes it relates to. When a phase of the sales process takes longer than guidelines recommend, the shape for that phase changes color or shows an icon that alerts you to the situation. As the data in your worksheet changes over time, you can update it in your Visio diagram with a click of the mouse. Watch the demo to find out how.
