Embed a Data-Connected Visio Diagram in Microsoft SharePoint 2013
In this lab, learn to configure an existing Visio diagram to retrieve data from a SharePoint list. Learn to connect Visio shapes to the list data, and use a custom data graphic template to present the data on the shapes visually using text overlays, data bars, and fill colors. Then, publish the diagram to SharePoint, and surface it on a Web Part page using the Visio Web Access Web Part. Using Web Part connections, you then add interactivity to the page. You also configure and test automatic data refresh. Finally, explore collaboration features in Visio Services by adding comments to the diagram. This data-driven Visio experience is created without the need to write any programming code or database queries.
