Chris Hopkins' Visilog
In this post, Tucker Hatfield, a Program Manager on the Visio team, shows you how to give us feedback by sending a smile or frown. This same feature is available in all Office Preview products.
Now that the Visio Preview is available, we want to hear what you have to say. You can let us know how you use Visio, what's most useful to you, what you like, and what changes you'd like to see. A big part of what will make the Visio Preview successful is the feedback we'll get from you, so help us make Visio better by sharing your thoughts through the Send-a-Smile feature.
With Send-a-Smile, you can tell the Visio team directly about your experiences. Sending smiles or frowns is super easy. We want to hear all of your feedback -- problems and suggestions, but don't forget to tell us when you're especially pleased with something -- we appreciate knowing what you think we did right, too!
You can send us feedback without even leaving Visio. In the upper-right corner of the Visio application, right next to your user information, you'll see a smiley icon. When you click it, you'll get two choices: Send a Smile and Send a Frown (there are even keyboard commands to make it really easy). Click any time you have anything you want to communicate to us.
Once you've chosen to send a smile or frown, you'll be given a form to fill out. As you can see below, the form is very brief. All you need to do is type in some text for us to read. It doesn't have to be long, but try to be really specific; the more clearly you describe what you like or dislike, the more likely we are to get your message. It makes us happy to see someone comment "Great!!" but we really want to know what got the writer so excited.
Note that there's a checkbox to say whether you want to include a screenshot or not. Screenshots can be very helpful to us in understanding your comments, so include them whenever possible. The screenshots look very small in the form, but there's actually a lot of detail in those you send, which give us a good look at what you were doing. Keep in mind that the screenshot includes everything you see on all of your monitors.
You can also choose to include an email address for us to use if we have any questions.
Once you're done, all you need to do is click the Send-a-Smile button and your comment will be on its way to us. Of course, you'll need to be able to connect to the Internet for it to be sent. There's also a close button to the form. You can use that to exit Send-a-Smile without sending anything to us.
Your Visio Send-a-Smile comments come directly to our team. We regularly read and discuss them. They're delivered through a tool that helps us filter them by a wide variety of things such as dates and keywords. It even shows us a visualization that illustrates the most common words and phrases. We use those tools to look for trends and recurring types of feedback. We also look for interesting individual comments and share them as well. What we learn from discussing the feedback fuels our decisions and shapes the work we do, both for the current and future versions of Visio.
Be sure to use Send-a-Smile whenever you have comments about your experience. It's important to us, and it lets you share in making Visio better.
One of the many tools you’ll find in the new Visio to help you make your diagrams look modern and professionally designed is the addition of shape effects. If you’ve used effects like shadow or reflection in PowerPoint you’re already

Our previous posts have discussed some of the great end user features we’ve added to the new Visio. For developers, the new Visio supports programmatic access for many of its new features. The new Visio API contains methods that let developers change

Developers and IT professionals frequently use Visio to design and document software and database systems. They recognize the benefits of visualizing complex systems to understand relationships and dependencies, and Visio makes it easy to communicate
Visualizing processes is at the heart of Visio’s DNA and in Visio 2010 we took a big step forward in that area by including support for SharePoint workflows. This lets users create a workflow in Visio, import it into SharePoint Designer, and make
I like the new work flow and in Visio. But its really not very functional when you think about it. The main reason is b/c it doesn't have a scripting language to point at the starting point and then walk through the work flow. I would love to see you add support to walk through a work flow using a script or an http request response interface into the Visio. The reason is b/c I want its great to have a diagraming software, but its much better if you can walk through the diagram and then have other programs do there thing based on which step in the Visio diagram you are currently in.
Here is an example: You are in an architectural visio diagram. You have a person icon at the bottom floor as you first walk into the building. Another 3d program interfaces with the visio scripting language and you see the lobby. Maybe it has an arrow and you can look around the room.
Another example... A work flow. I'm in a Python app or a C++ app and I'm debugging the program to display to stack holders for a major contract. I have a bunch of #ifdefr debug. And inside those I have an http interface to my visio program through a cloud web service. This is only an example/idea and one when I first start my program I connect through an http protocol using something like myvisioservice.visio.com/.../objectconnector.... Any way if both my program and visio interface with this visio cloud service I can have a very interesting board room meeting on displaying my app. The other guy using just a plain old visio file diagram is sucking. Because it can't show true interactivity with the program and whats really going on in real time. This has infinite possibilities for Microsoft Visio.
Now image as I'm doing this its got like a view frame that can port to word or powerpoint or directly to video. The point here is that the view frame moves as my pointer moves whether its a person icon walking through a room or a hallway, or a pointer through a workflow or showing images of people in an organization. IMHO this should be available out of the box.
Anyway, thanks for a wonderful product and hope to see you all improve the product in the near future so I can use it in different ways than as just a code generator and diagraming tool.
