Built-In Extensions

SmartDraw includes several built-in extensions that can generate a data-driven diagram from an external source.

Extensions are found in the Extensions folder in the SmartDraw Template dialog.

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.
