Importing Microsoft Visio diagrams¶
With a couple of mouse clicks, you can import diagrams you created with Visio - Microsoft’s drawing tool - into the Signavio Process Manager. Like this, you can switch to a fully-fledged BPM suite without re-modeling your business process diagrams.
The importer supports both BPMN 2.0 and EPC diagrams.
To import Visio diagrams, proceed as follows:
- Open the Explorer and click Import / Export - Import Visio.
Open the Visio diagram import dialog.
- Select the files you want to import, specify wether you will import BPMN 2.0 or EPC diagrams and click Import.
Specify the import options and start the import.
The importer supports .vdx, .vsd and .vsdx files, as well as .zip archives that contain such file types. Elements that are not part of the BPMN 2.0 standard, respectively not EPC-compliant, will be ignored.
Now, the diagrams will be imported into your workspace.
