  1. Open from file explorer into Visio Online

    I save diagrams to my OneDrive, my OneDrive is synced onto my pc. I don't have Visio client installed. I'd like to double click the files and get the file to open in Visio online ready for editing.

    The best I can do now is right click > View Online. But this opens in the reader view and I then have to click 'Edit Diagram' and 'Edit in Browser'.

  3. Shape search doesn't work anymore?

    I've got Visio 2016 Standard and discovered yesterday that I'm no longer able to search for shapes on the internet. The post at https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/office/troubleshoot/visio/cannot-search-shapes-feature says the feature has been discontinued. Do you have a suggestion for what I should do instead?

    The post's Microsoft'suggestion to search the Download Center for Visio didn't work since it brought up a link to buy the application but not any shapes. I found some shapes via Google search. That worked OK but I had to juggle a ton of stencil documents. figure the old search feature would have been much easier. I find Visio …

    It would be extremely useful to be able to access vendor specific stencil icons from the search menu.

  7. Azure icons / stencils are completely outdated

    I can't believe that I managed to get me a Visio Plan 2 only to find out that Azure icons are not only missing, but flat out outdated.

    I mean, Msft has been pushing Azure and I would at least expect their main product Visio to keep up with that.

    Visio is expensive compared to other options such as Lucidchart.

    It is clear to me by this User Voice channel that this product is not engaged with the community. No idea is being addressed / answered.

    My experience with Visio online is very poor and there are better options in…

  8. Can we get an "Open" option on the Dashboard page for Visio 365?

    There does not seem to be an option to open a Visio doc in the opening dashboard of the online 365 Visio. You have to open a blank document (which creates a blank visio doc in your OneDrive you didn't even want) before you can get an 'Open' option. Even then you have to have it in your OneDrive, you can't grab local from your computer.

  11. Add "Link to Tab" Functionality

    Similar to the "Link to Slide" functionality in PowerPoint, it would be nice to be able to link directly to a specific tab in a multi-tab drawing.

  12. Visio Plan I - need a converter for legacy Visio .vsd files

    My company converted to Office 365, and I now have Visio Plan I. They advise the Visio Plan II is not compatible with our limited Office 365 version.

    We have 100's of older Visio files created as .vsd format. From my Visio Plan I browser, I can VIEW these files, but I cannot edit them with Visio online. I posted this question on general MS website, and MS Admin looked. There are no official converters available for me to convert the legacy .vsd files into a format I can use to edit. I don't want to use supposed converters off…

  13. Make files viewable in multiple Teams, and multiple Folders

    ...like gDrive! Having files is very 1990s, and reproducing the limitations of Windows in the cloud just make this dated. The same file needs to be viewable as latest, greatest in multiple locations (Teams and folders)

  14. Containers available on web version

    Adding objects to containers is a common requirement for a good diagram. It does not appear to be supported in the current version of the web client.

  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.

  20. 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.
