SharePoint 2007 – Visio 2007 integration

Just saw this while clicking around in MOSS..Just installed Visio 2007 last week and this is what I got to see in my actions menu on a list:

visio integration in moss

It just adds a new link “Create Visio Diagram”. It only works in lists ( task list and issue list, not the custom list)

So, off to create some tasks and to see what Visio offers me!

Wow..it categories my tasks based on priority and status!

I can add other categories to divide my tasks, add fields to show on the shapes..This looks great 🙂

It also creates 2 other pages, “workload distribution” and “Incomplete tasks by Assigned to”

Now if we could only get this in MS Project 😉
