Best Practices

The following are best practices from this chapter:

  • To open a Visio drawing in a browser via SharePoint site, you must save your drawing file as a web drawing (.vdw file).

  • When connecting to a SQL Server database from a Visio web drawing, use an ODC file stored on the same SharePoint site as your Visio web drawing. This helps you with maintaining a single connection file for all Visio web drawings.

  • The Automatically Link button under the Data menu lets you quickly link your data rows to shapes. It is handy when dealing with many data rows.

  • It is important to use legends when defining data as nontext. You can create a legend quickly by using the Insert Legend button under the Data menu.

  • You can copy and paste shapes to quickly create shapes of the same size on your drawing.
