In this course, I'll show you how to become truly proficient in the Visio environment and create many diverse Visio diagram types. Together, we'll create connected diagrams, in the form of flowcharts, and use those to understand the in and outs of Visio diagram creation. We'll create hierarchical diagrams, both in the form of brainstorming diagrams and organizational diagrams. Together, we'll build time-sensitive diagrams by creating Visio timelines and calendars.
