Last week there was some big news for Visio fans as Microsoft announced Office 365 will be included with most business subscriptions, from Business Standard to the E5 Enterprise subscription and everything in between. Judging from the feedback I’ve had after posting the news on LinkedIn, many people have wanted this for years!
The web only version of Visio is great for basic diagrams and will be perfect for most users who have straightforward needs. If you are an advanced user or need the desktop version, you will still need an additional Visio plan. It inclludes a variety of Shapes for creating flow charts, network diagrams, AWS, Azure, UML, Org Charts, and business diagrams. Visio includes collaborative features for working together on diagrams.
The Update is currently on limited release, with the full rollout due in July 2021. Learn more by reading the official Visio Announcement from Microsoft.
Here are some screenshots while you wait for this to arrive in your tenant!
