  3. Add Shapes for Heroku and Salesforce.

    Heroku as a platform should be included as Shapes. It is a commonly used Platform as a Service product owned by Salesforce. In addition, having shapes that represent the various Salesforce products in order to better enable architects using Visio to build comprehensive platform diagrams with full accuracy.

  11. Add touch zoom and scroll to Visio online

    If you use a device that supports touch it is really awkward to have to use the pan&zoom window or zoom dial and the scrollbars for moving around on the diagram.

  12. Have you a template for Barker-style data models?

    I use the data modeling notation invented by Richard Barker and Harry Ellis in 1980. You can see it in "Data Model Patterns: Conventions of Thought", by me, David Hay.

    Can you provide a template for that notation?

  14. Web version to maintain page format.

    The world is opening and MSFT Explorer is no longer the only option. Notice that on an OS other than MSFT, the web version is bad, slow and will not maintain the page format making it difficult to use. I am not planning on changing my computer to a windows base OS, but I am contemplating other available options to make the same documents. They work pretty good when I tried their demos, and they are also web base.

  16. Storyboards

    Hi,

    It would be nice if Visio supports the storyboarding collaboration proces.
    Together with the users, Functional consultants and UX experts, Visio in combination with Teams will have an positive impact of the efficiency.

  17. 2 ended skinny arrow

    I cannot find a normal looking (skinny) connector with an arrow that goes in both directions - I don't want the fat arrow. I feel like I must be missing something - surely there's a 2-direction arrow available that's just a line? Maybe because I am on a Mac?

  18. Visio Online diagram embedded on SharePoint modern page - shapes with hyperlinks should change the mouse pointer on hover.

    If we use the embed web part to show a Visio diagram (saved to a document library) that has shapes that have hyperlinks, the mouse pointer remains the default if the user hovers over the shape. In Visio the mouse changes to show that there is a hyperlink. Without changing the mouse pointer, users do not know they can click the shape.

  19. 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.

  20. Add AutoSave as the other office apps have

    Word, PowerPoint, Excel, OneNote all have AutoSave. A feature that is a life saver and that it is easy to get used to.
    In Visio this is not implemented for some reason.

    I have had a Visio document that I have worked on for 2 weeks, on a Windows restart, it was all gone. Last save, 2 weeks ago.
    The apps are all in the same family, I only save to Teams/Onedrive, I guess that right or wrong, I expected an AutoSave behaviour.
