Business Process Modeler: Visio Flows

By Ginger Griffith | October 9, 2018

In our previous blog, Business Process Modeler Structure, we discussed what the BPM was and the first layer of the BPM structure. As a quick recap, some of the tips of the first layer that were mentioned included: managing libraries, determining user experience and importing business processes.

Now let’s discuss some tips and tricks for the second layer of the Business Process Modeler: Visio Flows.

Visio Flows

  • Upload Visio flows as needed to supplement system generated flows.


  • You can upload Visio flows at any level of the BPM, it does not need to be the lowest business process or task level. In fact, it is often a better Visio diagram if it represents a higher level business process instead of just the flow of one task.

  • Only one Visio flow is stored, uploading a second Visio flow overwrites the first. Remember Visio flows are currently only accessible from the BPM.  The Flows are not accessible from within D365.
