With ready templates and thousands of shapes to help simplify complex information, the team can easily create, collaborate and share linked data in the diagram. Overlay data quickly at the top of your project. Automatically update the underlying data refresh, diagram and data visualisation. Licensed for 1 PC.
If you’re upgrading to Visio 2019 from Visio 2016, you’ll still have all the features you’re used to—and you’ll notice a few new ones as well!
Kick-start your diagrams
The Organization Chart, Brainstorming, and SDL templates have new starter diagrams to get you up and running quickly.

Built-in database model diagrams
The new Database Model Diagram template accurately models your database as a Visio diagram. No add-in required.

Create wireframe diagrams for websites
Bring ideas to life by using a Visio wireframe. A wireframe is a detailed visual model of an interface that is like a blueprint of functionality and content. These new Website Templates are ideal for creating a low-fidelity, design sketch to present ideas, arriving at a team consensus, and forming the basis of a high-fidelity wireframe.

New UML tools
New UML component diagrams
You can create UML component diagrams that show components, ports, interfaces and the relationships between them.
New UML communication diagrams
You can create UML communication diagrams that show the interactions between lifelines that use sequenced messages in a free-form arrangement.
New UML deployment diagrams
You can create UML deployment diagrams that show the architecture of a deployment of software artifacts to nodes.
Improved AutoCAD support
Enhanced AutoCAD support
Before, Visio supported .dwg and .dxf files from AutoCAD 2007. With this update, you can import or open files that are from AutoCAD versions 2017 or prior.
Improved AutoCAD scaling
With this update, you will see scaling improvements when importing AutoCAD files. Just make sure to set a couple of properties first. In AutoCAD, make sure that the active tab is a layout tab, and not the model tab. Also, make sure that the Visio drawing scale is set to the same scale as the AutoCAD viewport scale. This article provides more detail.
Faster import of AutoCAD files
With this update, you will notice that AutoCAD import speed is greatly improved.
Instantaneous shape overlay
There used to be long delays when working with shapes on top of CAD files. With this update, there’s no delay.
