  1. Online store support for Visio shapes, templates, add-ons, add-ins

    I was surprised to not see this in the list as every MVP conference I have been to this has been a topic of discussion. Whether for monetization or not, Visio users need a central location to find content for Visio. This includes shapes, stencils, templates, sample diagrams, shared community diagrams, add-ons, add-ins, etc. I would link this with the Apps for Office model but the framework that would support this feature and the framework that would support the Apps for Office feature are probably to different.

    Now we have 3rd party partner templates and sample diagram show up in the backstage via template store. We’ve also added a brand new Education category for creating content relevant to schools or for gamifying education. We are working on Visio add-on catalog and a Shape search / discovery / download for the partner content ecosystem.

  2. C2R Installs should support MAK key

    The C2R installation should support MAK license activation
