TaskMap Data Graphics

NOTE: This topic applies only to users of TaskMap Professional.

TaskMap Professional makes Visio Data Graphics even easier to use in two ways:

  1. TaskMap Professional provides a selection of pre-built Data Graphics.
  2. TaskMap Professional allows you to customize the color and operation of its pre-defined Data Graphics from the TaskMap Options toolbar button. You don’t need to learn anything about how to use Visio’s Data Graphics functions to tailor the TaskMap Data Graphics to your liking.

TaskMap Data Graphics are designed specifically to display the Task data fields that are available only in TaskMap Professional. TaskMap Professional also includes a pre-built Data Graphic that provides an alternate display format for the Responsible Role field.

Using TaskMap Data Graphics

To apply a TaskMap Data Graphic

  1. Select one or more shapes on a page.
  2. Open the Visio Data Graphics pane by doing one of the following:
    • Select Data/Display Data on Shapes… from the main Visio menu.
    • Turn on display of Visio’s Data toolbar, then click the right-most button (popup text says Display Data on Shapes).
  3. Click on any TaskMap Data Graphic

Hint: You can only apply one data graphic at a time to any given shape, however, you can apply multiple data graphics to different shapes.

For additional information about customizing TaskMap Data Graphics, refer to the TaskMap Options toolbar button.
