  1. Web version to maintain page format.

    The world is opening and MSFT Explorer is no longer the only option. Notice that on an OS other than MSFT, the web version is bad, slow and will not maintain the page format making it difficult to use. I am not planning on changing my computer to a windows base OS, but I am contemplating other available options to make the same documents. They work pretty good when I tried their demos, and they are also web base.

  2. Provide a link to the visio online page in the embed iframe viewer

    The embed iframe viewer doesn't provide a quick link to the actual visio online page. I personally use the embedded viewer in Confluence pages and I would like other contributors to quickly access the visio source to make changes.

  3. 2 ended skinny arrow

    I cannot find a normal looking (skinny) connector with an arrow that goes in both directions - I don't want the fat arrow. I feel like I must be missing something - surely there's a 2-direction arrow available that's just a line? Maybe because I am on a Mac?

  6. Azure Infrastructure - Reverse Engineer

    It would be awesome to be able to import and automatically diagram your Azure Infrastructure. Similar to what Lucidcharts does with Amazon AWS.

  7. Business Process Modeling Notation

    Smart Draw has the full bank of BPMN symbols. Visio could do a better job of organizing the scattered selection available

  8. Shape Diversity

    I couldn't choose to get the Desktop version for work and the process mapping shapes are lacking. I need shapes for Value Stream Mapping, Fishbone diagrams, and other Lean Six Sigma mapping techniques. I could make a VSM in Excel but that would be infinitely more time consuming.

  9. import shapes

    Want the ability to import shapes like you can in the desktop version of Visio. Or be faster about adding shapes that are requested (like AWS shapes). You added Azure shapes, but we also use AWS. draw.io has both AWS and Azure and I am forced to use that program due to I am using a Mac (no desktop Visio) and Visio Online doesn't have AWS shapes.

  11. Include Visio Online Plan with O365 Dev Subscription

    The office 365 developer subscription, bundled up with Visual Studio Enterprise subscription (Office 365 Enterprise E3 Developer Trial), does not include a licence to Visio Online. Further to this, you are unable to add a paid subscription. You get the message 'You are not eligible to acquire this product.'

    I really want to create a proof of concept Visio mash-up but cannot!

  12. Add move varitey to shapes

    It would be great to see a higher selection of shapes built into Visio for network device and other appliances. Adding a more modern representation of network technologies would go a long way. The ability to show a Layer 2 and Layer 3 switch and the different infrastructure that the devices are being used in would be a bit better with more shapes.

  14. More control over arrow placement

    I'd like finer control over where connecting arrows are routed. I can't seem to find the setting to change the arrow style either.

  16. multi-page flow chart creation with Data Visualizer

    I'm working with large flow charts in Data Visualizer and need a way to split the content across multiple pages.

    I am currently splitting my flow chart into multiple tables in Excel so I have one table for each page. This is rather clunky and is really annoying to move things across pages.

    I'd like to have ONE table with an add a column for "page" or "section" that I can use to drive multiple pages or multiple containers.

    With this set up I'd be able to move a process step from page 2 to 3 with a few changes…

  17. Leave LAYER PROPERTIES DIALOG open and floating when working

    Visio is often primarily used for diagrammatic graphics. Explaining relationships between things. These projects usually have heavy usage of repeated/similar/duplicated captions and objects.

    This can mean constant switching between, locking/unlocking and visibility on and off ...of layers.
    And constant arrangement with snapping and gluing, and also not wanting to snap or glue.
    Floorplans being a great example.

    And Visio is meant to be built for speed.

    Massive time savers
    Hotkey for SNAP TOGGLE
    Hotkey for GLUE TOGGLE
    [better than long winded ALT+F9 to open dialog box, then select options, then close, then make adjustment in project ...then ALT+F9 sequence again…
