Interactively Build Microsoft WORKFlows visually in Visio (Two-Way Interchange)

Would be great to be able to build complex workflows visually in Visio (interactively with variables and logic) and have that visually display simple to complex workflows and build Microsoft Flows automatically.  Two-Way updates between Visio and Flow would be very helpful.  This would be something that a power user could use and explain to others - instead of enterprise solutions like NinTex that require IT involvement. 

Status: Planned

We announced we are working on this feature at this year's SharePoint conference.

I'm working on some rather lengthy Flows and will need to provide a training presentation.  I'd rather not dive into the actual flow when a higher-level diagram would do for my audience.  Sometimes a hardcopy is easier for discussions and mark-up.

 

Any chance there's a way to export Flows to Visio for basic documentation and presentation work?

Was there any reply to this, I am in the same boat as the OP.

I see an amazing repsonse time by Microsoft?

I'm in the same boat here. I'm about to manually recreate it as a diagram in visio just to get something more presentable for my training.

If the visio version of the flow could also be used to display the current status of an instance of flow, then this would be awesome!  Like the old days when SPD/Viso workflows would place a green tick next to each step that had been executed in the workflow status window.

Following this announcement could someone from MSFT add a bit more detail on where we can get the template.  I have Visio Plan 2 subscription but cannot find any Flow template.  Or does it not require a template??
