  1. 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.

  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.

  3. 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.

  6. Shape Diversity

    I couldn't choose to get the Desktop version for work and the process mapping shapes are lacking. I need shapes for Value Stream Mapping, Fishbone diagrams, and other Lean Six Sigma mapping techniques. I could make a VSM in Excel but that would be infinitely more time consuming.

  7. Azure Infrastructure - Reverse Engineer

    It would be awesome to be able to import and automatically diagram your Azure Infrastructure. Similar to what Lucidcharts does with Amazon AWS.

  8. Provide a link to the visio online page in the embed iframe viewer

    The embed iframe viewer doesn't provide a quick link to the actual visio online page. I personally use the embedded viewer in Confluence pages and I would like other contributors to quickly access the visio source to make changes.

  11. Include Visio Online Plan with O365 Dev Subscription

    The office 365 developer subscription, bundled up with Visual Studio Enterprise subscription (Office 365 Enterprise E3 Developer Trial), does not include a licence to Visio Online. Further to this, you are unable to add a paid subscription. You get the message 'You are not eligible to acquire this product.'

    I really want to create a proof of concept Visio mash-up but cannot!

  12. Add move varitey to shapes

    It would be great to see a higher selection of shapes built into Visio for network device and other appliances. Adding a more modern representation of network technologies would go a long way. The ability to show a Layer 2 and Layer 3 switch and the different infrastructure that the devices are being used in would be a bit better with more shapes.

  14. More control over arrow placement

    I'd like finer control over where connecting arrows are routed. I can't seem to find the setting to change the arrow style either.

  16. 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.

  18. Adding TAM stencil

    Could you add TAM stencil as your default shape library?
    http://www.fmc-modeling.org/tam_stencils
    This is a very basic shape for SAP colleagues and relevant security experts.
    And also that's why we are buying Visio Online.

  20. multi-page flow chart creation with Data Visualizer

    I'm working with large flow charts in Data Visualizer and need a way to split the content across multiple pages.

    I am currently splitting my flow chart into multiple tables in Excel so I have one table for each page. This is rather clunky and is really annoying to move things across pages.

    I'd like to have ONE table with an add a column for "page" or "section" that I can use to drive multiple pages or multiple containers.

    With this set up I'd be able to move a process step from page 2 to 3 with a few changes…
