In our continued effort to make diagramming simpler and easier for everyone—and to address one of the most popular requests from Visio users—we are bringing Unified Modeling Language (UML) shapes and functionalities to Visio for the web. Now, all Visio Plan 1 and Visio Plan 2 users can model software-based systems and other processes quickly and easily with shapes and templates that meet UML 2.5 standards.
UML diagrams provide software developers and systems architects with the ability to design and visually represent software-based systems. These templates can also be used to model business processes and workflows. Visio supports both structural and behavioral diagrams, including nine different types of UML diagrams: Class, Sequence, Activity, Use Case, Component, Communication, State, Deployment, and Database.
To start diagramming, visit visio.office.com, select the preferred UML diagram, and start modeling your system or process instantly. Our support page provides even more details on how to create your UML diagrams.
Use familiar Visio for the web functionalities to quickly create your diagram and share it with your team and all stakeholders for review, comments, or final consumption.
