  • There is no restriction on votes but you can vote any idea only once. hence vote for ideas that you want to see in future releases of Visio
  • You can add #hashtags to your idea description for tagging! it makes it easier to search for similar ideas.

Looking forward for your ideas


  1. Include extended font options for Visio online

    Visio for the web currently only allows Text font, colour, bold/italics/underlined options.
    Options like Superscript, subscript, strikethrough, Text-capitalisations etc. are not available. All these options are available for the desktop version. As Visio does not have a Mac version, the only way Mac users can access the software is using the web version

  2. Add a 'New Note/Comment' function like in Excel

    so objects or phases can have collapsible annotation. Text box works, but can crowd chart. This addition would make for more interactive sharing. Expandable in Read/View Only versions.

  4. Export to .dwg from Visio Online

    Just as on the full desktop version, one should be able to 1. download the visio file, 2. download as PDF, or 3. download as .dwg for use in other CAD applications

  5. Support for patent drawings

    Patent drawings have very strict but simple requirements, including:
    - certain page dimensions (A4 or US letter),
    - numbered pages (e.g. "1/2" centered at the top of the first of two pages, within the margins),
    - certain margins(top/left/right/bottom: 2.5/2.5/1.5/1.0 cm),
    - line drawings with thick black lines (1pt), and
    - no colours or shading.

    A template that provided these features would be great, or alternatively the ability to import templates or modify these elements of the page directly would work too.

    In addition to functionality, one or two additional elements in the shape library would help. Curved callouts are customary…

  6. Ability to create an embedded link that is public and does not require logging in

    Similar to LucidChart's ability to embed a link that is viewable on other sites. We want to create diagrams and embed them within our internal documents. Right now that does not work because it requires you to "sign in"

  7. Can you make Visio Docs editable by multiple users. Most docs can do this. This would be helpful on team presentations using visio

  8. Display the list of sheets in visio preview on the right as a list.

    Display list of sheets such that the user can select from a wider variety of sheets than the ones at the bottom. Alternatively recenter the selected sheet after selecting it so that traversing diagrams with many sheets can be done faster

  9. Print View or Export to PDF (viewer)

    Please provide the ability to Print and/or save to PDF, when using Visio Online viewer.
    In my orgainisation, only a limited number of people are creating process maps, and have access to the full clients or Online Editor licences. The majority of people are consuming these processes using the online viewer. Not having a native print function is a show-stopper for us, particularly with senior management who like to print this kind of content and annotate.

  12. Ability to Change Shape

    Once you drag or select a shape on the drawing you can't change it. I don't always pick right the first time :)

  13. Readable resolution for data linked diagrams: Large data linked Visio diagrams with 'allow refresh' selected display at a low resolution.

    Apparently not a bug: Large data linked Visio diagrams with 'allow refresh' selected display at a low resolution. Higher resolution required - or at least a readable resolution.

  15. button for fit to width and/or jump to 100% zoom, top left of document

    Can you please add a button to Visio Online to resize the chart to the width of the window. Alternatively, please add a button to display the document at 100% of size, and aligned to the top left of the chart.

    Currently any Visio documents I view in Visio Online open by default with the entire chart visible. My company has made flowcharts for us to be read from top to bottom and some of them are very long and narrow.

    So for example, with my browser window maximised, a typical flowchart might open at 16% zoom. I then have…

  16. How about making the website/wireframe templates available in the trial

    I needed to see if the Visio product was capable of creating the website mockups I need to do using the Wireframe-Website template and stencils but the online trial version does not make that available

  17. 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?

  18. 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.

  20. 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.
