SharePoint and Visio

First, and the simplest of all, well, you can just upload regular Visio files into a document library. There is no problem with that. You get the wide availability, things like versioning and check in, check out. Visio is just treated like any other Office document inside SharePoint. I'm going to navigate out and find a simple Visio diagram that I have saved to my own documents library on my Desktop. Nothing remarkable here.

We can see it's got the Visio icon. If I select it, I have the usual suspects in my Ribbon for checking it out or viewing or editing the properties. Though if I choose to edit the document, it's just going to open up Visio 2010 and allow me to edit there. Now, there is nothing particularly remarkable going on here. I could make a simple change to this diagram, save this, and we have it now safely stored in SharePoint. So we can just use Visio diagrams...
