A chart is worth thousands of words, and more convincing than words. However you might think, it must be not easy to create such kind of charts, still less making them appealing.
Now with our expert-taught Visio training course, you will be able to not only design stunning, persuasive business charts, but also boost your productivity and efficiency.
We will explore in this course all the critical techniques you need to create diagrams, organisational charts, flow charts, home plan drawings, geographical maps, progress charts, Gantt charts, and so much more.
We will get started with the fundamentals of Visio, for example, the user interface, file management, templates, rulers, grids, guidelines, and so forth.
Shapes are the most important elements in Visio. Combining merely a few shapes, you will be able to create thousands of engaging charts and diagrams. What’s more, unlike many other applications, Visio allows you to create shapes by simply dragging the predefined drawing elements to the canvas, which saves a lot time and energy. You will learn how to draw different shapes and combine them in various ways. Examples include creating maps, SWOT matrix, organisation charts, pivot diagrams, home plan, etc.
Though charts are great, you should never ignore the power of words, since they help you to amplify your point. Also in some drawings, like the ones created for home plans, text supplies them with critical or explanatory, making them easier to read. You will be able to master many practical skill in creating text, text effects, annotations, text fields, etc.
Visio is actually very smart and highly customisable. Like many software, Visio allows you to customise workspace that fits you most, add or remove buttons on Quick Access tool bar, personalise the Ribbon, and define your own templates.
Pages and Layers
With the concept of Page, you can embed multiple drawings in a single Visio document. With the concept of layer, you can easily manage the shapes on your drawing. It is really handy when you need to create many shapes in a drawing. You will learn the real hassle-free layer management techniques in our class.
Collaboration here refers to the feature that Visio provided to work seamlessly with other software applications, such as, Word, Excel, PowerPoint or even AutoCAD. You can import data or shapes from these applications to Visio, and vice versa.
In this section, we will further learn the drawing features of Visio through a couple of cases, which are very carefully selected from the real-world situations.
This course is designed for people who hope to learn Visio drawing.
