Written for the desktop version of Microsoft 365 Visio, this course is the second part of Velsoft’s courseware for Microsoft’s diagramming application.
Microsoft Visio takes diagram and flowchart designing to the next level, providing the tools users need to arrange complex data and numbers, and turn them into easy-to-read flow charts, floor plans, and much more.
This course builds on concepts learned in Part 1, helping Microsoft Visio users get comfortable working with more advanced features such as enhancing the look of drawings, creating custom shapes, stencils, and templates; connecting drawings to external data, leveraging development tools, and sharing drawings with others.
