  4. 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.

  5. Visio Online Web Part

    Like the Visio Services web part, please can we have the ability to have Visio Online as a web part such that it allows customisation and connectivity to other web parts.

    (Very useful functionality that exists within Visio Services.)

    Please provide an ability to create and edit diagrams created by custom templates. Simple editing first (text, resize, move, delete, connect) but with the abilty to add shapes (e.g., from the Document Stencil).

  7. Clickable Overlays in Visio Online App Part

    It is not currently possible to have clickable image overlays in the Visio Online app part. This was functionality supported in legacy Visio Services and we desperately need it back!

  8. 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.

  9. Layers Visibility/Selection

    It would be very useful to have the ability to show/hide specific layers on the diagram as in the Visio interface, or provide a way to control this via a Javascript Mashup.

  10. Allow control of more UI features via the Visio Online API

    It would be very useful if the Visio Online API gave us more control over which built-in UI components are visible to the user.

    We're currently working on a project where we're wrapping the Visio Online viewer and then integrating some additional features and data provided by one of our apps.

    In order to provide a more integrated user experience, we would like to be able to at least control the following features via a settings in the API:

    * Which controls are visible in the main toolbar (e.g: breadcrumb, Document Name, buttons, etc)

    * Whether the hyperlink pop-up window…

  11. 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.

  12. Support Entity Relationship Diagrams

    It would be great to see support for the creation of crow's-foot Entity Relationship Diagrams in Visio Online. It's possible to do a basic ERD without crows-foot relationship representations with the SDL > Divided Process, but it's not very easy and the lack of crows-foot notation is an issue.

  13. Make Visio Online part of Office365 Home

    Consider opening Visio online free to Microsoft OneDrive users. That is, the free account that you can get with Windows/Microsoft account (like is done presently with other Web/Online versions of the Office tools; OneNote, Word, Excel, etc.) or at least Office365 Home subscription users. Google has free diagraming and drawing tool as part of Google docs online and Microsoft needs consumer/students mindshare. If you open it up, consumer pull through will spill into the enterprise.

  14. Visio online: open a linked diagram (in another vsd file) in the browser

    We have Visio files in a SharePoint library. When the user clicks on a file the diagram opens in Visio Online.

    However when you click in this diagram on a link (collapsed process) to another visio diagram, which is stored as another Visio in the same library then currently the only option is to download that file or open it in the Visio deskptop app.

    Please make it possible to use your browser to navigate through different diagrams, that are stored in different Visio files on sharepoint (is if they were webpages).

  15. Open linked diagrams in the same browser tab

    Please provide a way of opening linked diagrams in the same tab. Currently, when we click on a link to open another diagram, it will be opened in a new tab, and many of our customers dislike ending up with a large number of tabs in their browser.

  16. Need to make online Visio fully functional & compatible with the desktop version

    I would like to see the online version totally compatible with desktop versions as well as Mac versions. Being mobile would be so simple and not a cumbersome as Office 365 is today.

  18. Visio Online 'Editable' App Part

    We need the ability to edit Visio Online diagrams within an app part so we can have custom functionality linked to the edits being made.

    E.g., connect two shapes in the Visio Online diagram canvas > press a submit button > kick off an MS Flow

  20. Export to image

    Would be great to have this either for the end user or even as a developer API. At the moment we're having to rely on some code dating back to 2012 which doesn't work server side on Sharepoint Online..
