Pros: It is a very stable software with time in the market that has been evolving in a fast and positive way, it likes a lot because it has multiple templates defined online, from different areas, in my case I use more than flow diagrams, network diagrams. , Organization charts and Work Breakdown Structure, the latest versions can be opened from the browser.
The advantage of making diagrams in visio is that we work on a grid sheet which allows us to order efficiently the components of the system we want to build.
Additionally the shortcuts help to optimize the designs because the elements are presented in a visual way.

Cons: Visio presents several points of improvement as it should be the integration to the microsoft office package, because it is acquired with an additional license, which has an impact on Opex increase of our company, also the handling, multilayer must be improved being able to integrate designs of Printed circuit board in an easy way, or simple construction or industrial plans without getting the complexity of CAD software.

Overall:
The main benefits of Visio is the ease and speed that allows the work team in the company to translate the action plan steps in a diagrammatic way when we define the operational workflows, simplifying in a feedback diagram what can be done. occupy several pages written in a document with high probability that will not be read by the majority of members of the work team.

Pros: I like how Visio easily allows you to connect ideas together. Whether it's a workflow or hardware/software diagram, Visio allows users to make clear and clean visuals.

Cons: I only used this software for workflows and hardware/software configurations that had already been created. I feel creating diagrams from scratch can be difficult as there are so many tools and it's hard to figure out where to start. Once you get started, things are smoother but finding your starting point can seem daunting.

Pros: This tool is very useful, you can create a variety of diagrams, from diagrams of flow of data, diagrams of processes, of database, diagrams uml, diagrams of network, already related to infrastructures of technological networks, among others. It has a variety of icons for use in the diagrams, so it is not necessary to use other images to create it. For companies that have a Sharepoint infrastructure, with microsoft visio we can design the workflows and in a visual way we can observe the interaction between each part of the workflow. It has a free viewer so that people who do not have visio installed can observe the diagrams. With Visio Online you can now create diagrams without installing anything, and share them within the company

Cons: As the tool presents a variety of utilities because it covers many types of diagrams, if you do not investigate a bit how to use it the user can be overwhelmed by so many things that he has and can do.

Overall: Design any type of diagram in a quick way and be able to collaborate and share with my colleagues, tools like these make us more effective with our work

Pros: It's very easy to use all kind of shapes and figures that the tool offers. Setting up the dimensions of the sheets it's very useful because you don't have limits of space and you can summarize in a flowchart also the most complicated processes. What is very interesting is that you can use the chart to map also all the roles of people that are involved in each process.

Cons: Some functionalities are not really efficient because they are really time consuming. Some tools can be improved and simplified, for example it should be easier in my opinion to split the windows and compare processes.

Pros: Personally, it has greatly facilitated my work and activities, since it is very easy to use software, even for beginners, as most Microsoft tools are very user friendly. I find it interesting that I can insert any type of images and comments, which has allowed me to customize my diagrams, besides the software has a great variety of symbols that manage to make my diagrams very detailed in a short time and it is ideal to copy the flow diagrams of process, organization charts, work calendars in my Word reports or my PowerPoint presentations without having to modify them since they are perfectly compatible

Cons: I particularly like this software, although in more complex processes it does not have the necessary tools to prepare diagrams and of course at the time of activating the product it is necessary to buy the license that is a bit expensive compared to other software

Pros: For my work this software has been of great help in the layout of programming algorithms. This application makes it easy for me to visualize the flow of information between objects
It has an extensive library of templates for different disciplines and the objects are concatenated maintaining their relationships of predecessors and successors.
In addition to allowing a logical sequence I can present an excellent design in my algorithms.

Cons: It is not easy to use for basic users and I consider that for very complex engineering and architectural designs this software is not the most suitable.

Overall: I love it, this app is an excellent flowchart design tool for multiple disciplines.

Pros: Vizio allows you to easily create elegant diagrams. I love how many visual objects you can choose from to represent different objects in your diagrams. When connecting objects, the connectors will snap to anchor points which make it easy to make cleanly organized diagrams.

Cons: Sometimes the connectors will not bend the way you want them to. Which can be frustrating. Selecting and moving multiple objects can sometimes be a disaster if you don't completely include each object in the selection.

Pros: Visio provides a great quality when it comes to diagram. It allows drawing complicated diagrams in multiple domains with excellent quality output

Cons: There are two main cons (in my opinion) for Visio:
- Price, especially when comparing to other lower cost (even free!) alternatives
- Learning curve. I think that the interface is a bit bloated (just like most Office suite apps!)

Microsoft Visio is a must for anyone in the networking field.

Pros: I had never used software to make technical drawings and diagrams because they were very complicated. When I started using Visio I was excited to deepen its management and I am excited to continue learning to do increasingly professional jobs. It allows me to make plans, diagrams and 3D plans. It is wonderful and very easy to use.

Cons: It is a bit expensive and a progressive learning process must be done to use it. It is not very easy for novice users, but once the ice is broken it is very simple, practical and versatile.

Overall: Visio is a very complete tool to make highly complex drawings in a very simple and practical way. It has many menus and options to do very professional jobs. The 3D plans are amazing, as is the diagram tool. I love Visio.

Pros: Visio is a tool for drawing. It is very versatile to draw process flow diagrams, data, architectural and structural drawings and 3D maps. It is very easy to use and allows you to gradually get to know the capabilities of the software. It allows to realize an endless number of graphic utilities to incorporate in my daily professional activities.

Cons: I am convinced that it is software that is worth its price, but I must say that it is expensive. It offers many benefits to the client but the user must spend a period of adaptation and knowledge of the software to be able to use it fluently.

Overall: It is a box of surprises, I loved the software and I use it more every day. As I use it I know new applications and tools to draw. It complements my presentations that are aimed at very demanding students. It is common for my students to ask what kind of program I use to do my work? ... I answer Microsoft Visio.

Pros: If you often have to deal with visual elements in the process of work, try the Visio program from Microsoft. This software, of course, does not have as many functions as professional programs for drawings. But on the other hand, you can easily (in just a few minutes) add charts, business diagrams, flowcharts, with which the text information is converted into a more convenient format: visual.

Cons: As I said above, the program does not allow creating complex circuits, for example, electrical. In addition, not all blocks of circuits and diagrams meet the technical requirements for drawings.

Pros: I'm using it mainly for visualizing IT solutions (complete datacenter and or site setup) with sites, buildings, server racks, connections, branded vendor parts using vendor stancils. With Visio I can make every solution "readable" by the customers.

Cons: I can't find a way to migrate all Visio settings (including vendor stencils) fro one computer to the other. Other than that, I'm very happy with this software.

Pros: I like that I can create and edit diagrams in my preferred browser. Anything that I create can be shared securely in multiple ways. You also have the capability to make comments online in real time.

Cons: The storage you are allowed is limiting. This software offers online plans only that I could find and they can get pricey. The functions that I need in order to share items with volunteers requires me to get the more advanced version, which in turn is more expensive even though I only need one or two of the additional features that this plan offers.

Overall: I was able to construct a layout for our exhibitor prospectus easily and share the links with my committee members for comments.

Pros: Effective layout/mapping/diagraming software. Most popular one so it is common to receive and work in this format.

Cons: NO MAC VERSION! This needs to be rectified. The usage base would go up dramatically and the market for 3rd party apps would disappear.

Pros: I've used the different Visio versions over the years, and they continue to give me a great UX, easy to use to create simple process maps or complex future states.

Cons: Can't think of anything that stands out as a con, would like it integrated into 365 which we are moving to in the next year (don't believe it is but I may be mistaken).

It's robust, but there may be better options out there for the money

Pros: Visio has been around for quite some time, inherently known for flow and organizational chart usage, does very well at the basics.

Pros: Easy to create flow charts and graphs. It is a heavy duty tool and allows users to make very complex charts. Excellent for ICT, technology, and architects.

Confused with all those libraries that you have to download from Internet... Searching for shapes can sometimes be a hassle.
If it only could extract robust HTML pages, or use macros and rest automation etc.

Overall: Ease of use, all in one place. Very good illustrations in minimal time.

Pros: Microsoft's Visio has evolved into the leading applciation for producing business level flowcharts and diagrams. Various templates and a multitude of shapes and icons allow for the creation of an almost unlimited variety of diagrams, ranging from organisation charts to process flowcharts, floor plans, and almost any other type of layout limited only by your imagination.

Visio is now included in Microsoft's Office 365 suite of programs and can even import data from Excel, another Microsoft program it sits alongside.

Cons: We don't really find anything not to like, as this application is so feature rich and is included with Office 365.

Overall: Colourful, tidy and informative diagrams can be easily created. A simple organisation chart is an obvious use but so is project planning, with the ability to update and insert any type or size of process at any time.

It is a good Flowchart Software,which contains the minimum requirements of these software

Cons: It does not allow to export shapes of other programs, it does not allow to do works with collaborators, its quality of final finish is very basic

Pros: The software is very intuitive and easy to use. It provides a great variety of templates, so it is very easy to create a new flow chart from scratch, using connector lines.

Cons: One of the limitations of the program is when you want to save or when you want to transfer an image to a different program, since the image is not transferred in exactly the same way and may appear slightly different.

Overall: I can make flow charts more quickly and efficiently
