 Hi Vani,

Here's a suggestion on how we've used the diagram feature for changes in some projects. 

If there's a change to UI screen/page, they'll "Insert a picture" (marked up screen shot) of the existing screen, then use the DNG diagram features to show what they're adding or replacing below the screen shot. They'll then link that diagram to the UI Artifacts detailing the requirements. Seems to work well for providing a visual to go along with the changed requirements.

I can't say we create Diagrams that often to document business or process flows; most of our users tend to continue to use Visio for that, then upload as a PDF to DNG.  That's partly because they're starting with an existing Visio from another project that they've modified.
