Use the wide range of diagrams in MS Visio 2021 Standard - or create your own shapes
MS Visio 2021 Standard provides users with an extensive collection of diagram types that can be used to visualize a wide variety of processes and structures. To facilitate the search for suitable diagrams for a specific application area, these are thematically clearly divided into so-called templates, which in turn contain the individual shapes or diagram forms. In the Standard edition, for example, simple network diagrams can also be created with them. Many of the shapes available in Visio are industry standard compliant, which means that they contain binding information and are therefore also available for further use of the information they contain.
Easy editing of shapes
Shapes can then be supplemented as required, for example with their own text - in this case, the individual fields can either be described directly, or data can also be imported directly, for example by linking them to an Excel table or - if available - an Exchange database. Import via MS SharePoint or OneDrive Services is also possible.
Creation of own shapes
In addition to the shapes optimized for displaying specific structures and processes, Visio 2021 also offers a selection of practical general start diagrams that provide a quick start in frequently required areas such as organizational charts, also in accordance with the Standard of Specification and Description Language (SDL), and in brainstorming, for example, to create flow charts, workflows and timelines. Practical hints are also available, which are especially helpful for beginners.
Users can use these general as well as the specific shapes in Vision 2019 Standard to create their own custom shapes and permanently save them as new master shapes in the "Favorites" for repeated use. For this purpose, the shapes included in Visio 2019 Standard can also be further graphically customized or supplemented, depending on additional requirements: for example, individual contents or components can be highlighted more strongly using various tools, and the complete diagram can also be edited. As tools or options are available, for example: Text can be changed in formatting and color as well as rotated, thickness, style and color of diagram lines can also be changed. Furthermore, a palette of fill colors, gradients, transparencies and patterns is available, as well as shadow, glow, reflection and 3D effects to emphasize certain areas, which can be helpful for presentations and reports.
Brief introduction of diagram types in MS Visio 2021 Standard
Visio 2021 Standard again includes additions to some types of diagrams, further broadening their scope. The most frequently used shapes and forms are mainly those diagrams that describe processes:
- Flowcharts - these can be used to visualize the individual phases of processes in projects as well as technical procedures, including swimlane diagrams, which can be used to assign individual work steps to different teams.
- Cross-functional flowcharts are a special case, typical forms are IDEF0 diagrams, which are used to model system and business decisions, or BPMN diagrams, which are used in business informatics and process management.
- Process flow diagrams are mostly used to represent chemical and industrial processes, they also take into account the equipment used in the process.
- Business process diagrams can clearly represent many operational processes - even of a complex nature.
- Timeline diagrams document the sequence of developments, e.g. in business processes.
Furthermore, Visio Standard 2021 provides the following diagram types:
- Organizational charts clarify the structures in organizations as well as hierarchies and dependencies.
- Sequence diagrams visualize the participating actors or objects of certain interactions as well as the respective events.
- Activity diagrams describe actions or methods of actors.
- State diagrams illustrate the sequence of phases through which an object passes, e.g. the product life cycle.
- Case or usecase diagrams describe the individual phases of development projects.
- Communication diagrams illustrate interactions of elements within a system.
- 3D bar charts can show sales, profit growth or other KPIs.
- Floor plans, as well as building plans as a variant of them, visualize the structuring of architectural spaces and floor plans; they also depict infrastructures, for example, such as technical descriptions of circuits (also in accordance with IEEE compliance), installations, piping and systems, as is also required for space planning.
- IT diagrams illustrate interconnections of processes, functions and roles, such as in Active Directorys, but also of databases; ITIL diagrams (Information Technology Infrastructure Library) also fall under this category.
