I am currently using visio and I need to create a workflow that I can import into designer, but I don't have the template.  Is there one that I can download?

Just to confirm, following these steps does not give you the workflow template?

To open the SharePoint 2013 Workflow template in Visio 2013
Open Visio 2013.
Choose New.
Under Template Categories, choose Flowchart.
Under Choose a Template, choose SharePoint 2013 Workflow and then choose Create.

Thought occurs, what version of Visio 2013 do you have? Is it Premium?

Standard will not allow Workflow creation AFAIK.

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Hi Guys,

I believe that Visio 2013 comes in only Standard and Pro. They've done away with the Premium that 2010 had.

Only Visio 2013 Pro has these SharePoint templates:

- Microsoft SharePoint 2010 Workflow
- Microsoft SharePoint 2013 Workflow

So if you've got Standard, you're out of luck.

I'm working with Visio 2010 Standard.  My boss is trying to get me a copy of Visio 2013 with the correct template.

You might be able to try one of the 30-day trials and see if it's what you need, then worry about the money later...
