Did you know that Visio can check your site for broken links?

This is one of those features I stumbled across a number of years ago, and it still seems to be a very well-kept secret. You can use the Web Site Map diagram to tell Visio what site to map out. Visio will also X-out every page image where the link is broken.

I know there are probably site crawlers and link checkers that are more comprehensive and have more whistles and bells to play with. But it’s hard to argue with a tool you may well already have sitting on your desktop.

  1. This is only an option in Visio Professional and Visio Premium. Reference: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/visio/2010/04/09/visio-2010-editions/
