An Office 365 tutorial by Peter Kalmström

Office 365 logoMicrosoft Visio is a diagramming and vector graphics application that helps you create professional diagrams that are linked to data and updated when data changes.

Visio is part of the Microsoft Office family, but it is not included in the basic Office 365 packages. You have to pay an extra fee to use it regularly, but you can include Visio in your free trial and see if it is useful to you.
