As business process owners, have you ever wanted to turn a complex business process diagram into an automated workflow seamlessly? With Microsoft Flow, business owners can already build workflows that automate time-consuming business tasks and processes with ease and simplicity. On the other hand, Microsoft Visio has always been the tool of choice when it comes to documenting these processes and workflows. Now, with Visio’s import from Excel and export to Flow feature, the business owner can create process diagrams automatically from data or draw them on canvas and with a single click export the workflow to Microsoft Flow. Learn how to create these flowcharts and workflows automatically with a few simple clicks using Microsoft Excel, Visio, and Flow. This session is also highly recommended for those who have used SharePoint designer for creating workflows.

I've tried to create a business flow in Power Automate following this video, but I stopped on the "Prepare to Export" phase on Visio. The message was "At this time, you can only export BPMN Diagrams to the Power Automate".
I thought that I've following exactly the same video steps and I've restart the process step by step. I realized, then, that when I exported the sheet from Excel to Visio, it was generated a diagram using the "Basic Flowchart Shapes" Stencil, instead of "BPMN Shapes" Stencil as showned on video.
As the export from Excel to Visio procedures did generate a diagram using other stencil, the only way would be create a new diagram from zero.
Did I do something wrong? Anyone faced the same problem? Can you help me to solve this problem?
Thanks in advance.
