My manager wants me to create a wireframe using screenshots of a current website design to document the current functionality of the site. I need to do this using Microsoft Visio 2007, however, I have not used it in a while.

I need to know what is the best way to do this in Visio 2007...I do not have 2010 version.
Does anyone have a sample or a link that would show me how the best way to do it in visio would be? I have the screen shots, I just need to add numbers and then a column to the right with an explanation about the section that is associated with the number.

Thanks so much. If I could get an answer as soon as possible it would be greatly appreciated.

You said you have Visio 2007, not Visio 2010, so unfortunately the answer above won't help.

Visio 2007 Professional includes a web site analyzer that can produce a diagram of a web site as many levels deep as you'd like (Caution: it takes a while on a medium to large site): File>New>Software and Database>Web Site Map

I know the output isn't what you described that you're looking for but I though it might give you some ideas.

How many pages are you dealing with? A dozen or two? Many dozens? Hundreds?

Also, can you provide a sample of what you'd like to see? I'm having trouble picturing it so I'm having trouble imagining a potential solution. Part of that might be terminology; I think of a wireframe as a mockup of an individual page but I think you mean something different.

Regards,
Scott
