Microsoft Visio

Visio makes it easy and intuitive to create flowcharts, diagrams, org charts, floor plans, engineering designs, and more, using modern shapes and templates with the familiar Office experience. Work together on Visio flowcharts to include insights from all stakeholders. And with Microsoft 365, multiple team members can work on diagrams at the same time. Connect your flowcharts and diagrams to real-time data. Applied shape formatting automatically updates your flowcharts to reflect changes in the underlying data, either in Visio or through Microsoft 365.

Please note that license requests may take approximately 10 business days to process. Due to license availability and the potential need to request new licenses from the vendor, this processing time may also be extended beyond 10 business days as necessary.

Cost

Microsoft Visio licenses are available for $26.50/year. Licenses may be cancelled at the end of the annual contract, between June 1st and June 30th to avoid being billed for another year.

Availability

Microsoft Visio is available to faculty and staff via Microsoft 365. Departments may also purchase licenses for students or affiliates for departmental work.

Students in qualifying colleges may be able to download Visio Professional for free through the Azure Dev Tools for Teaching site.

Features

  • Create professional diagrams quickly. Get started with Visio easily with a select set of pre-crafted starter diagrams and contextual tips and tricks. Take advantage of refreshed templates and thousands of shapes that meet industry standards including Unified Modeling Language (UML) 2.4, Business Process Model and Notation (BPMN) 2.0 and Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers (IEEE) compliance. Use smart shapes to boost productivity, and leverage new themes and effects to customize and complete professional-looking diagrams faster.
  • Bring diagrams to life with data linking. Connect data to the visualization of an organizational structure, IT network, manufacturing plant, or complex business processes to grasp performance in one glance. Visio shapes can be linked to multiple data sources including Microsoft Excel, Microsoft Excel Services, Active Directory, Microsoft SQL Server, Microsoft SQL Azure, and Microsoft SharePoint Lists and Business Connectivity Services. Use data graphics such as icons, colors and text to simplify and enhance the visualization of complex information. Take advantage of the new one-step connectivity with Excel tables and swap data graphics to your preference with one click.
  • Communicate one version of truth visually. Communicate and share your flow chart, timeline, process maps, organizational structure, IT architecture, or floor plan across the enterprise through a browser with Visio Services in Microsoft 365 or SharePoint. As your underlying data refreshes, your diagrams is refreshed in the browser. Work together on the same diagram at the same time and easily see reviewers' comments—in both Visio and Visio Services. Secure diagrams with Information Rights Management (IRM), data loss protection (DLP) and multi-factor authentication.
