Diagramming in Confluence: Visio Import for draw.io

draw.io, the diagramming tool for Confluence, is perfectly suited to be used for a number of applications. From flow charts, to organization charts and mind maps, it allows you to create a wide variety of diagrams where you can clearly visualize complex processes and data.

For some time, draw.io has been offerering companies who use Atlassian Confluence in addition to creating diagrams with Microsoft Visio, an import feature that brings Visio diagrams into draw.io and into their intranet. For the past few weeks, this feature has been intensively expanded, and a number of customer requests for this feature have been added to the development queue. You can see all the new features in the most recent release, available now.
