  2. Allow dynamic data binding

    I have a diagram linked to a SharePoint list. How can I dynamically bind my diagram shapes to different data rows? For example with a list web part on the same page, how can I make the diagram respond to the selected list row? Since creating a custom data provider is not possible in SharePoint Online, what is the alternative? Is this possible through the API?

  3. Use visio online from Provider Hosted Application in SharePoint

    We have Visio Files stored in a SharePoint list and would like to use (show and interact with) them in a Provider Hosted Application in SharePoint. We tried some situations but keep having issues with cross domain scripts, because the Provider Hosted Application lives on an App Web which has a different domain (https://<tenant>-<guid>.sharepoint.com) than the host web (https://<tenant>.sharepoint.com).

    Is there already a solid working solution for this?

  5. Innovative Thinking

    It would be awesomeness to incorporate value stream mapping to the Visio online version.

  6. Fill a property on shapes by vba code

    Hey guys, Im on a new project in my company and I need to make some things in Visio 2016.

    I want to write a vba code that create a property in shape data and then fill it with the container's shape name. Is there possible?

    Ive already wrote a code that creat a property "Setor" in all shapes on the page, but I need to fill this property with the name of a container the shapes are into.

    The code that Im using is this:

    Private Sub Setorizacao()

    Dim visShape As Visio.shape
    Dim visPage As Visio.Page

    Set visPage =…

  7. Allow line control nodes on connectors to snap to other connectors

    When placing lines that lay along the same path as another there seems to be no way to snap overlapping lines to each other, or to the start/end nodes of other lines.
    It would make things neater.

  10. Please add Maps and Floor Plans

    In the Desktop version you can plan Office Layouts which is very useful. It would be very good, to make it avaiable online too, so you can have the same experience as with the desktop version. There should be no difference between online and offline.

    OfficeLayout #floor #maps #walls

  12. Internet Explorer 11

    Embedded Visio diagrams currently have a message on them in Internet Explorer 11, that the browser is unsupported. Can IE 11 be supported? This is one of our officially supported browsers internally and it would be difficult to switch.

  13. Configure embedded Visio toolbars

    Our company uses Visio diagrams (currently in the web part, figuring out how to switch to the embed code) in SharePoint sites as site navigation. The old web part allows us to turn off the toolbars within the web part so the diagram appears to just be on the page on its own, with no controls to zoom or change tabs, etc. We'd like this same capability with embeds done from Visio Online.

  17. Visio Online integration with Microsoft Flow.

    SharePoint workflows used to integrate with Visio, allowing developers to create a Visio Diagram that was easily understood and easily implemented as a workflow. It would be cool if you could build out a Microsoft Flow in Visio.

  18. Add Page Name Field in a Page Template

    In Visio Desktop and Visio Web Access, there is no problem leveraging the page name attribute as a dynamic field in a page template. (This eliminates redundancy and inconsistency). Currently, in Visio Online reader, this feature doesn't work for pages that leverage the template. The field remains static and just displays "Template", the page name for the template.

  19. Linking to shapes with Zoom

    In Visio on the desktop, one can link to any shape from another shape and specify the zoom level. Looks like that feature doesn't carry over to Visio Online

  20. Allow importing of other or custom stencils - Splunk, AWS, etc

    Provide the ability to upload and/or store custom stencils sets, i.e., Splunk, AWS, or other customer stencils. Once imported, stencil set should be available to any new diagram for the user.
