It's easier to start creating and customizing diagrams
Visio is packed with enhancements to make it easier to get started, find the stencils you want to use, and quickly get great-looking results with many built-in templates, many with updated shapes. You can also create and customize professional-looking diagrams using a set of expanded and improved effects and themes that apply a completely different design in just one or two clicks.
Perform common tasks more easily
Diagrams are seldom static, so Visio makes it easier than ever to update your diagram with new shortcuts for frequently performed tasks. You can get to frequently used tools right away with a significantly improved quick-access floating toolbar and easily replace any shape (or combination of shapes) in a diagram while preserving your shape connections, shape metadata, and the overall layout.
Create great-looking organization charts more easily
One of the most used templates in Visio—the organization chart—just got even better with several new styles—from professional to playful, which you can apply with just one click, the ability to import pictures and improved layout options to help fine tune the way your org chart looks.
Work together on diagrams with your team: Collaborate on diagrams with new teamwork features.
Work together on a single diagram at the same time
Streamline teamwork and reduce the risk of errors by allowing two or more people to work on the same diagram in a single file at the same time—from rearranging and adding shapes, to writing comments, to applying effects.
Give feedback with improved commenting
The latest Visio release introduces features designed to make it easier to capture and address reviewers' feedback on diagrams. You can add comments to any diagram from virtually any device, whether through Visio or a browser using Visio Services – and can get immediate clarification on any you are unclear on by initiating an instant messaging (IM) conversation or audo/video call right from within Visio. (Requires a compliant IM application, such as Microsoft Lync
