One simple way to include a TaskMap on a web page is to save all or a portion of the TaskMap as an image, as described under Sharing Images. Gif and jpg image formats are well suited for inclusion on web pages.

As an alternative, you can publish your TaskMap as a web page and have TaskMap and Visio create the web page(s) for you. If your TaskMap does not contain any hyperlinks to external documents or files, you can skip directly to Simple Publishing Example Step 3: Save.

  3. Save: Save your TaskMap as a web page.
  4. Publish: Make your TaskMap available to your intended audience.
