    With more users using MS Teams, collaborating and co-authoring on the same Visio diagram should be made available via Visio Online just like Office Online.

    On behalf of the Visio team, thank you for providing your valuable input. We recently enabled real time co-authoring in Visio for the web. With this, multiple users can now simultaneously work on the same diagram by editing, and co-commenting in Visio for the web. Users can co-author via Teams as well. Please visit the techcommunity blog for more details.

  4. Save as PNG for Visio Online

    I would like the ability to save a file as a PNG and JPEG so I can copy and paste into a Word Doc. LucidChart has this functionality.

  5. Visio online download as PDF

    It would be extremely useful to be able to download a PDF file from Visio online. This function should also be possible via a share link to the Visio file. Here's a use case:

    I want to share a Visio grid with others inside and outside my organization. This way, when I make changes, they just go to the same link every time to see the most up to date version. Then, if they want to download the file, they can download as a PDF and print or do whatever else they want with it. They also may not have…

  8. Remove embed border

    Embedded Visio files currently have a thin black line bordering them. Can this be removed? Many of the locations that we embed to have the same color background as the Visio file does, so this is unnecessary.

  11. Please add networking shapes to visio online. This is a great platform to collaborate on high level design details for complex IP networks!

    It would be a huge help to have shapes or icons for high level IP network components. Having common components of modern networks would be HUGE!! Router, switch, firewall, load balancer, fiber, Ethernet, SD-WAN components, Data centers and company HQ and branch icons would be awesome!

  14. Make it possible to de-select one or all shapes from the API.

    Currently there's no option to deselect all shapes. Deselecting one shape at a time will automatically select another one. In our scenario we would like to 'reset' it programmatically to have no selection at all, like when it's in initialized state.

    While we use the Visio embedded in our application we would like to use both navigating from within and outside the visio. We would like to keep the Visio selection in sync with the application itself to give the users a uniform experience whatever the way they navigate.

    Visio Online Plan 1 now has three categories dedicated to network diagrams, Basic, Detailed, and Azure, with many shapes to help you with creating professional network diagrams. Please try these out and let us know your feedback.

  17. Print View or Export to PDF

    Would be great if we print it cleanly from Visio Online without all the extra browser stuff showing up. Or download as PDF so we can save locally and print.

  18. Customize the Diagramming Canvas (with HTML/JavaScript Mashup API)

    Providing capabilities that are available in Visio Services, especially the creation of HTML overlaps and JavaScript Mashups. Very important business feature to be able to customize the live diagramming canvas.
