Cons

Some fields are a bit confusing and more time consuming than others.

The amount of time for processing. The inability to delete/remove old programs.

GH

Grant H.

Putting in a new program- some features are difficult.

PH

PAMELA H.

Cons

More than once I had to make the same changes to a diagram cause I misplaced or lost an updated version. That is my biggest pain with visio, and is ultimately why I switched to Lucid Chart.

TL

Timothy L.

Formatting is the biggest challenge, especially when you have large projects it is difficult to view all and you loose track.

Kimberly G.

Using auto-arrange features can result in errors such as wrong diagram arrangement.
