COURSES INCLUDED

Exploring the interface
Visio allows you to create several types of diagrams and graphics. But in order to get the most from the application, you will need to understand its interface. In this 9-video course, recorded in a Visio Online Plan 2 environment, learners will discover Visio's interface, learn how to navigate between multiple documents, and use the zoom function. You will begin the course by observing how to find, open, and close the Visio application, and then exploring the interface and understanding how it is organized. Next, follow an introduction to the Zoom tool, which is an important function in Visio, and then learn how to use multiple documents simultaneously. Discover how to modify the project document display, personalize certain display options in Visio, and also customize the Quick Access toolbar. As the course concludes, you will observe how to customize the ribbon by adding, editing, and removing commands from the ribbon and customizing its display, and configuring the save options.

Saving & formatting documents
In order to get the most out of Visio, you need to know how to create and save your files. You will learn how to export your documents in different formats and print a hard copy, manage your document's pages, and work with files in this 10-video course, recorded in a Visio Online Plan 2 environment. Begin by discovering how to create and save a document. Then explore how to export files as a PDF, create a PowerPoint presentation, and change the file type; check the file's compatibility, convert it to the latest version, and check the file's accessibility, and then print a copy. Next, you will learn how to add or remove file properties, remove personal information, and reduce the file size; select one or two multiple objects using the selection tool, and manage the pages of a document by adding, duplicating, renaming, reordering, and deleting pages. Modify the page set up to change the page size and orientation; change the theme of a file, and finally, add, edit, and remove backgrounds.

COURSES INCLUDED

Inserting & Formatting Text
Visio allows learners to create several types of diagrams and graphics. This 6-video course, recorded in a Visio Online Plan 2 environment, explores Visio tools allowing users to insert and format the text of their documents. First, learners see how to quickly insert, format, find and replace text in a document. Once you have finished drafting a document, you can use the spell check feature to detect and correct any text errors. If the document is in another language, you will observe how to translate the words directly from Visio. Save time by observing how to create and save templates to use later. If you frequently create the same type of document, templates are invaluable, acting as a starting foundation for future projects and speeding up your workflow. Learners observe how to open the Custom Office Templates folder, where templates remain accessible from the Visio start page interface. With the location selected, learn how to change file type from default—a standard Visio Drawing—by opening the drop-down menu and selecting Visio Template.

Using & Formating Shapes
Visio allows learners to create several types of diagrams and graphics. Explore Visio tools that enable you to create diagrams, including shapes—the main element you will need—which you can create according to personal taste, or use Visio's predefined library of shapes, in this 11-video course, recorded in a Visio Online Plan 2 environment. Observe how to arrange shapes you have selected on your page, as needed. Then learn how to format those shapes with the addition of styles, effects, layers, and containers. The course continues by demonstrating how to reuse a data set in Visio after saving it: right-click the Shape Data pane and select Shape Data Sets. Next, observe how to create a new field from scratch by toggling Create a new set; once the field is validated, you can insert fields. If the data set is selected, leave the second option toggled, and click OK to save. To apply this data set to another shape, learners observe how to select the shape, then check the set, and click Apply.

Illustrating & Enhancing Documents
Visio allows learners to illustrate documents with a series of drawing tools. This 9-video course, recorded in a Visio Online Plan 2 environment, explores Visio tools that allow you to illustrate your documents by inserting data fields, callouts, images, links, and objects which add useful information to a file. First, observe how to double-click on the shape you want to add a field to—or click on the Field Tool and select the shape and insert the category for your field from the left-hand menu: Shape Data, Date, Time. Other key topics explored in this course include how to use the Edit Data Graphic window, which displays information about the data graphic selected, and how to create a data graphic by using the Advanced Data Graphics tool and selecting New item when the Create New Data Graphic window opens. Observe how to choose the Data field, and click on that drop-down menu button. Finally, learn how to annotate a document to add information quickly, and how to import and manage external data in a file.

Analyzing your data
Visio allows you to analyze data in a diagram by inserting and formatting charts and PivotTables. Learners will discover how to create different types of reports for stronger and more complete analysis of their data, in this 7-video course, recorded in a Visio Online Plan 2 environment. Charts, for instance, reinforce the visual representation of one's data; observe how to insert simple charts into Visio and then modify the information by using the associated Excel style spreadsheet. Learners will then watch practical demonstrations of inserting an Excel chart, and observe how to edit the different information to correspond with the data that the chart should represent. The course continues by exploring how to export a diagram to a Word file, after choosing the elements needed in your document by modifying the different settings. Key topics covered in this course include how to use Shape Properties; Snippet Transparency settings; Apply Shape tools; and Pivot Diagrams.

Creating Flowcharts, Maps & Plans
Visio offers learners different tools to improve the quality and efficiency of their day-to-day tasks. This 11-video course, recorded in a Visio Online Plan 2 environment, explores the series of Microsoft Visio tools that allow learners to integrate and collaborate with other Office applications, as well as AutoCAD, as part of the extended Office Suite. First, learn how to create organizational charts, floor plans, network diagrams, and calendars. To facilitate your work, you will next observe how to import events from Outlook into a Visio document. If an AutoCAD file is used, Visio allows its importation into a document and its conversion into shapes. Other key topics covered here include how to change the lineweight for selected layers; how and when to convert the hatch patterns into Visio shapes; and how to create Data Visualizer diagrams by using an Excel workbook. Learners will also observe how to create a BPMN (Business Process Modeling Notation) diagram and export it to Microsoft Flow; and how to create a diagram based on an Excel workbook with Visio.

Sharing & Collaborating on a Document
Learn how to interact with others by using Visio tools described in this 6-video course, recorded in a Visio Online Plan 2 environment. First, learners observe how to verify diagrams, use comments tools, and check out the file. Before a file is shared, observe how to use the app's validation tool to determine whether any issues exist within the diagram. Continue by observing how to easily share documents via e-mail or a link, and how to manage permissions. Key topics covered here include how to create a Master Document, containing subdocuments that can be linked to or fully integrated into a Master Document; and how to organize and keep track of different illustrations in a document with a table of figures, much like a table of contents. This table can be updated automatically and adjusted to show figures, page numbers, and names. When interacting with others, you will learn how to leave comments on specific parts of documents, and how to prevent other users from editing files while you are still using them.
