Extensions are applications integrated into SmartDraw that can generate diagrams from data.
Normally, clicking on a template icon in SmartDraw opens that template as a new diagram. Clicking on an extension icon will instead prompt you to point to a source of relevant data. Generating a diagram from that data is as easy as selecting some formatting options and clicking a "Build Diagram" button.
SmartDraw has a number of built-in extensions that can generate a data-driven diagram from an external source and we're constantly adding new ones. Explore the existing built-in extensions below.
