Take a look at this instructional video and learn how to analyze how a process or other area is actually performing by connecting data to the shapes in your diagram with Microsoft Visio 2007. You can also add different visual effects based on the data values. For example, you can link sales data from an Excel workbook to the shapes it relates to. When a phase of the sales process takes longer than guidelines recommend, the shape for that phase changes color or shows an icon that alerts you to the situation.
