Each student, upon completion of the course, will receive a printable Certificate of Completion from RedWave Technology Group, LLC. This certificate will contain the date of completion, the course title, and the student name.
- Working with Containers – Containers in Microsoft Visio 2013 allow a user to add visual boundaries around select shapes and then label these same boundaries in an according fashion. In this module learners are lead through the ins and outs of manipulating containers and topics include: adding a container, adding shapes to, and removing shapes from, a container, changing container style, resizing the container, and disbanding the container.
- Adding Callouts – Callouts are similar in appearance to thought balloons in comics and are used in Microsoft Visio 2013 to add annotations to shapes in a drawing that has been created. This module looks at inserting and moving callouts, changing the position of a callout line, resizing and callout and changing its style.
- Using Layers – Just like an onion, a drawing in Visio 2013 is made up of layers. These layers are used to organize related shapes on a drawing. Here students learn how to add a layer then show or hide a layer, how to activate a layer, how to color a layer and lock it, and how to preserve group member layers.
- Using Data Graphics – Data graphics are used to display information about a shape and they are generally inserted in a Visio 2013 file automatically when a user links a shape to external data. This module teaches how to insert data graphics, how to create custom data graphics, edit graphics, and remove graphics.
- Creating Process Diagrams – Process diagrams are graphical representations of a how step-by-step process is carried out. Arrows are usually used to express directional flow between shapes. In this module, users are taken through a look at creating a process diagram, adding shapes, creating new sub-processes, linking sup-processes, editing sub-processes, and checking the diagram for errors.
- Creating Cross-Functional Flowcharts – Cross-functional flowcharts act to show relationships between a process and the organizational or functional units. Here learners are taken through how to create a cross-functional flowchart, how to add swimlanes and separators and shapes, how to change diagram orientation and direction, how to modify swimlane margins, and how to choose a flowchart style.
- Creating Organization Charts – Organization charts can be used to show how an organization functions and the reporting hierarchy within. This module shows how to create an organization chart manually, how to create one with the wizard, how to add shapes and images, and how to change the shape style.
- Doing More with Organization Charts – A further look at organization charts is taken here. This module takes users through how to: modify the layout, change the spacing, modify the position, create and use a synchronized copy, and how to compare charts.
- Creating Workflow Diagrams – A workflow diagram is used as a visual representation of the series of steps in the creation or management of a project. This module looks at creating a workflow diagram, adding shapes, importing SharePoint workflows, exporting workflows to SharePoint, and creating stage outlines.
- Creating Gantt Charts – A Gantt chart is a bar chart which is used to show the schedule of a project and to track its progression. In this final module, topics covered are: creating a Gantt chart, entering tasks, dates, and duration, adding rows and columns, and configuring work time.
