Instant Diagrams: Enter Data in Excel and Watch  Visio Create the Diagram

You know how to create flowcharts and swimlane  diagrams by dragging shapes onto the Visio drawing page, but did you know that  the Data Visualizer, part of Visio Plan 2, can create diagrams for you? Simply  provide data in Excel for each step in a process and Data Visualizer does the  rest. Even better, the diagram and the data are synchronized so changes you  make in one are synced to the other. It’s also possible to work entirely  within Excel and create a Visio diagram without needing a Visio license! After this session you’ll be equipped to let Visio do most of the work for you when  you need to create diagrams.
