  4. Allow document auto-save to be turned off

    Include a setting in Visio Online to allow the user to turn off the auto-save feature. My prefered mode would be to only save a document when I fully intend this to happen. This would allow me to freely open and close document safe in the knowledge that they would retain there original state. Under this scenario, if the auto-save setting were set to false, a Save button would become visible in the UI and the document would only be saved if this button was pressed. (The usual warnings could also be surfaced if you try and exit with the…

  5. Add an Offline Mode similar to Outlook Web Access

    OWA for Office 365 let's you work offline if you enable offline mode in the settings. It would be great if this could be applied to Visio online also, for those occasions where WiFi is patchy.

    Even if you could just view existing diagrams would be a good start

  8. Display entire text for shape info, don't auto hide the text after a few seconds.

    Requesting to view the entire text for value in the shape Data under Vision Online -> Shape info.
    Also requesting that the data displayed should stay (not be hidden after a few seconds) as long as the mouse does not move out of the area.

  9. Create a UWP Web Wrapper

    I think a fairly simple UWP app that is essentially a web wrapper would be really useful. The UWP could be set as the default editor for Visio. If you open a local visio file it would offer to add the file to OneDrive.

    It could also offer a list of recent documents both inside the app and on the live tile. This would mean you don't have to write a full on app for editing as all that would be handled in a web view. This would just allow you to take full advantage of native features in Windows…

  14. Minimize Visio Online title bar area

    It would be helpful to be able to minimize the area in the browser where the "Visio Online", other Microsoft Services and your login name is shown, along with a big black bar. This takes up a lot of valuable real estate when working with a large drawing and forces more panning when zooming in.

  17. Integrate with OneNote - File Printout

    Allow Online Visio documents to be embedded into OneNote notebooks by use of File Printout Feature.
    Currently, the following error message appears:
    There was a problem inserting the file. If you can open the file in another application, try printing the file to the 'Send to OneNote 2016' instead.

  18. Allow opening embedded Visio's into the Visio client

    Today I cannot open an embedded Visio object into the Visio client, like I can with PPT and Excel. All I can do is edit the diagram in the object editor which is a poor tool to use.
    So I end up having to store the Visio file alongside the main document. Extra work.

  20. Make ActionTags available

    We use ActionTags extensively for showing both warnings and informational messages to users about shapes. It would be very useful to have these online too.
