You should check this out! Imtiyaz Mubarak (a developer, Microsoft Parter, and friend from India) along with Chris Castillo from the Visio team created and published a component that provides a Visio Add-In and a Project Add-In that integrates Visio 2003, Project Server and MS SharePoint Server. This component allows you to:

  • Generate Project Plans from the Visio Process Flow  Diagrams.
  • Generate Project Plans from WBS.
  • Generate SharePoint Tasks from the Visio Process Flow Diagrams.
  • Report the Status of the tasks from Microsoft Project Plan stored locally or in a Project Server.
  • Report the Status of the tasks from Microsoft SharePoint Portal Server.
  • Generate a Portfolio View in Visio from Microsoft Project Server.
  • Generate Visio Process Flow Diagram from MS Project Plan through MS Project Add-Ins.

This component is published in GotDotNet and it’s really cool. This is the kind of stuff that solves business needs and I love that it integrates different Office technologies. I am sharing with you the link where you can download the solution along with source code and a document that explains the architecture and code.

  • It is a great tool but some features such as rotating right to left and curved flow connectors does not work.

    Can we download the source code for the WBS Modeler?

  • WBS modeler doesn't have some of the useful features which Visio Connector for Project/EPM/SPS got. Isn't there anyway to download the Visio Connector. Please help

  • Hi

    You can download from Gotdotnet.com ( Microsoft user sample) where you can search by project name "Visio Connector Project /EPM/SPS"

    Thanks

  • The GotDotNet site has been shut down.  Is there any place where we can download these tools?

  • the code is not there. how can I get the

    Visio Connector for Project/EPM/SPS.

  • I would be also interested if the source code or the original download is available somewhere, as we would like to connect Project 2007 with Visio 2003. The WBS Modeler cannot be used in this scenario.

  • has anyone managed to get Visio Connector for Project/EPM/SPS?

    if so please let us know

  • can anyone shed some light as to why the visio wbs chart wizard has been removed from project 2007, is it available in project 2010?

  • I have the same problem not done yet. I downloaded the WBS Modeler, but it doesn't work, it doesn't raise up in visio menu. Anybody can help me this way please?
