Greetings from Team Visio!
We are pleased to announce an **early preview** of data-driven smart diagrams for the first time in Visio, brought to you exclusively by the Office Insider Program
Do you currently spend hours connecting shapes, placing them into the correct Swim lanes and to create the perfect layout? Are you looking to save time when creating your process diagrams from data every day?
With Visio’s data-driven smart diagramsfeature, now you can automatically create a Basic Flowchart or Cross-Functional Flowchart from your process map in Excel, in no time.
The process meta data or metric data that you capture in Excel columns gets stored in Visio shapes as shape data.
How does the preview work?
The preview will be open to all Office Insiders. If you are not a part of the Office Insider Program, you can still get access to the early preview by signing up. Once you sign up, we can help you with onboard with the rest.
Note: The feature preview scope is *limited*. We are always working to improve our feature to make it the best version possible, and greatly appreciate your comments and feedback...
