"The solution is easily modified to suit your needs."
"This is a flexible tool compared to some other solutions."
"The solution has wide use within Microsoft products. The integration with Microsoft products, and, in particular, Microsoft Office, is great."
"I like that once you create what you need, you can group that, at least within that drawing, and you have access to that new stencil object or that custom object throughout that drawing."
"The fact that you could program in VBA is most valuable."
"I like the way you can hypertext across tabs so you can actually create an interactive that you can export as a website. You can also extend it to a monitoring tool if you really wanted to."
"Visio is easy to use."
"Visio is stable."
"It is stable. I have never experienced any issues."
"It is very easy for people to start using this tool, and we can import Visio templates that are already published by vendors such as Azure without any issue."
"The most valuable features are that the user experience is simple, and it's customizable."
"It runs relatively slowly."
"The migration tool needs to be included in the main package, and not as a separate license."
"The performance is slow, which is something that should be improved."
"Inventory feature could be improved."
"Portability from Visio to PowerPoint and vice versa could be simplified."
"It can be complex. If you don't know a little bit about it, it can get really confusing."
"System architecture could be improved."
"Some of the improvements that have been made in Visio have not been beneficial, at least to me, personally. Too many things have been added to it, and it makes it kind of clunky sometimes. There is an overwhelming desire or competition to continue to improve it when the product is and has been pretty good, and some of what is done tends to clutter it. In some cases, the updates make it more difficult to use. It is already pretty feature-heavy and continuing to add stuff is not productive from my perspective."
"It is not flexible in terms of functions and modeling deliverables. When you speak of processes, the program has to describe the activities and the deliverables. You have to tell your robots how to deal with and input something, and you should have something more flexible from this point of view."
"The solution should be included in Microsoft Office 365. For some reason, it's not. It should be bundled in with everything else."
"The user interface could be more robust."
