|A good knowledge of Visio at Introduction Level|
Microsoft Visio is one of the least-used components of Microsoft Office but it is one of the most powerful and, I believe, the most versatile. The basic functions of creating very slick diagrams on-the-fly are what Visio is used for most often, but there is a whole world of functionality beyond being able to create a flow chart and this Visio training course aims to explore some of it.
In later versions of Visio the dynamic capabilities of Microsoft Visio have been expanded, and now it is possible to link the diagram to a data source, often an Excel workbook, so that as the data changes the diagram alters to reflect those changes. This has far-reaching implications for business use; it is now possible to link a drawing to reflect performance, KPIs, sales, profit – any one of the standard metrics.
Administrators and HR professionals often resort to Microsoft Visio for generating Organisation Charts dynamically from stored data. Having tried to accomplish the same task in PowerPoint I can honestly say that I am a big fan of Visio!
IT Professionals turn to Visio to create network diagrams, server configuration diagrams and site-wide link diagrams, and these can be turned into a record of hardware to make them even more useful.
