Import Visio Diagram

Process diagram files created in Visio can be opened in Task Capture in multiple ways as follows:

Immediately after Task Capture is launched

  1. From the Home Page, select Open from PC, on the left side menu.
  2. In the new window, select a Microsoft Visio Diagram (.vsdx) file.
  3. Select Open.

As a New Project

  1. From the Home Page, select New Document.
  2. Go to File menu and select Import Visio diagram option.

📘

Supported File Formats

Import Visio Diagram supports only *.vsdx files that are supported in MS Visio starting 2013 (v15.0) released in 2012.
Files in *.vsd or *.vstx format are not supported.

In a Current Project

When a Build diagram or capture process is already in progress, you can import a Visio file by going to File menu > Import Visio diagram option.
A new project will be created for the selected Visio file and you will be prompted to choose if you wish to save the changes of the current project.

:open-file-folder: Regardless of the opening method, a notification on the bottom-right side indicates the status of the opening file. This can be:

  • Successful - it shows up if Task Capture mapped the diagram elements without issues.
  • Error - it shows up if the diagram after mapping to Task Capture was empty.
