Microsoft Visio

Microsoft Visio is a diagramming tool included in the suite of Microsoft 365 applications and add-ins. It enables users to create a wide range of visuals, from straightforward flowcharts to intricate network diagrams. A standout feature of Visio is its seamless integration with Microsoft Project. This integration facilitates the importation of data from a Project file into Visio, which can then automatically generate a timeline diagram. Such diagrams are particularly useful for visualizing project schedules and tracking key milestones with ease.
