  1. Excel to Visio

    We are just discovering the ability to create process maps in Excel and export to Visio. This seems like it has potential to save us a lot of time.

    We would like the ability to do the following:
    1. Customize the Header (Title) area
    2. Specify color for the various Function groups
    3. Add a standard shape (Divided Process) to the Shapes dropdown list
    4. Add a customer shape (Divided Subprocess) saved to More Shapes > Favorites > My Shapes to the Shapes dropdown list
