Left Navigation:

  • Process Diagrams: It is a link to the Visio Library.

  • Site Contents: It is a link to the contents of the site.


  • We have a tile structure to complete the following actions:

    1. Share your site: You can assign permission to others to view your site.

    2. Working on a deadline: To assign a Task using the Calendar

    3. Add lists, libraries and other apps

    4. What's your style?: Here you can change the color or theme of the site.

    5. Your site. Your brand: Here you can add a logo or a description to your site

    6. Keep email in contact: Here you can attach your Outlook directly to the site and receive all the emails in the site's inbox.

    7. Process Diagrams: A view to the Visio Library.
Site Contents
  1. Power BI: Microsoft provides comprehensive BI tools that integrate across Office applications and other Microsoft technologies. These tools enable analysis, reporting, dashboards and visualizations.

  2. Process Diagrams: This is a library where we have all the templates to be used as Visio Files.

We can see the Process Diagram library below. It is a normal library but when you click on New Document you will be able to see the following Visio Files.


As in the screenshot below, we can see all the available visio templates. Not only this, even the user can upload their own templates and create Visio Files.

It will be so ideal to create Visio files since you need not send them using emails to other people, you can just provide them access and share with them.

Secondly storing them on a limited size mail box is also an issue but it is overcome if it is used by SharePoint.

Kindly find the following all the templates available.
