SharePoint 2010

New post over at TCSCBlog.com about how to create a Visio Web Drawing that is data-linked to a SharePoint list and published to SharePoint for web viewing. Below is an excerpt:

Visio Services in SharePoint Server 2010 is a service application that allows users to view Microsoft Visio Web Drawings (*.vdw) in a Web browser. This eliminates the need for Visio or Visio Viewer client applications installed on the user’s local computer. These Visio Web Drawings, along with Visio Services, can be connected to various data sources to enable refreshing and updating of data shapes. One of these data sources is a SharePoint list and will be the focus for this post. Let’s look into how we can utilize Visio Services to solve a business requirement.

Business Scenario:

Management has requested a visual depiction of retail stores and current revenue.

Solution:

Publish a Visio Diagram that has a linked data connection to a Retail Stores Revenue SharePoint list.

Requirements:

  • Visio Professional 2010 or Visio Premium 2010
  • SharePoint Server 2010 Enterprise Edition
  • Properly configured and working Secure Store Service and Visio Graphics Service Applications
