Visio: Drawing on Experience with David Edson
David Edson, a consultant who specializes in Visio and who used to work on the Visio team, explains the behavior of shapes. Shapes behave the way the represented object does in the real world. But you can add the behaviors that you need to shapes by using the ShapeSheet. The ShapeSheet is kind of like Excel; you put values and formulas in fields to get the functionality you want.
Visual representations as reports can use familiar images to convey information in the language and syntax of a business (financial, medical, and so on), instead of having information in spreadsheets and tables.
