Review First Visio Flowchart
« on: August 28, 2014, 07:14:22 AM »
I am a rookie to Visio and need to do some flowcharting. Would really appreciate any critiques of the flowchart.

The Goal of the flow chart is to Trace the process for Name Change Request within the org.

Thanks,

Being picky:
1. the flow into the first decision should be into the top
2. the flows should not flow upwards unless returning to a previous point in the flow.

Paul,

You Rock! Thank you.

Do you have some recommendations for learning more on a steep curve for business process and flowcharts?

Thanks,

Hi

Don't know if this post is still relevant?

A small advice from a Visio rookie  :D :

Instead of inserting textboxes to label to choices attached to a decision box you can double-click each line and insert labels in that way.
