  3. Change shape

    Using Change Shape, you can swap the Process shape to a Decision shape with a single click. Just right-click the shape you want to change, select the Change Shape icon from the floatie, and choose the shape you want to replace with from the gallery provided. Hovering over shapes in the gallery will provide you with a live preview of the change so you can decide if it’s what you want before you click.

  6. Business Process Modeling Notation

    Smart Draw has the full bank of BPMN symbols. Visio could do a better job of organizing the scattered selection available

  7. Power BI

    It's useful for me to have Power BI integration, now if I only had shapes representing Power BI, Microsoft Flow, etc. :)

  8. Import an exported Microsoft Flow package to auto-generate a diagram

    Very similarly to this post (https://visio.uservoice.com/forums/368199-visio-online/suggestions/32605921-visio-online-integration-with-microsoft-flow), except the reverse. Just like you can export a SharePoint workflow and import into Visio, be able to import the exported package of a Flow into Visio - so something equivalent.

  10. page order

    Allow for Page Order change in Visio Online.
    As a Mac user, there is no desktop version of Visio but can design Visio diagrams online.
    It would be great to be able to change the order of the pages in the online version.

  11. Hotkey for GLUE TOGGLE

    Visio is often primarily used for diagrammatic graphics. Explaining relationships between things. These projects usually have heavy usage of repeated/similar/duplicated captions and objects.

    This can mean constant switching between, locking/unlocking and visibility on and off ...of layers.
    And constant arrangement with snapping and gluing, and also not wanting to snap or glue.
    Floorplans being a great example.

    And Visio is meant to be built for speed.

    Massive time savers
    Hotkey for SNAP TOGGLE
    Hotkey for GLUE TOGGLE
    [better than long winded ALT+F9 to open dialog box, then select options, then close, then make adjustment in project ...then ALT+F9 sequence again…

  16. 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"

  17. Visio support enhancements for Surface Studio with Dial and Pen support

    Allow the creation of Visio diagrams with Microsoft Surface Studio including Surface Dial and Pen-specific features.

    The ability to create initial diagram sketch with pen using the drawing to shape cleanup feature as well as context controls for the Surface Dial would make the Surface Studio and Visio Pro an incredible combination.

  19. Visio online download as PDF

    It would be extremely useful to be able to download a PDF file from Visio online. This function should also be possible via a share link to the Visio file. Here's a use case:

    I want to share a Visio grid with others inside and outside my organization. This way, when I make changes, they just go to the same link every time to see the most up to date version. Then, if they want to download the file, they can download as a PDF and print or do whatever else they want with it. They also may not have…

  20. Clickable Overlays in Visio Online App Part

    It is not currently possible to have clickable image overlays in the Visio Online app part. This was functionality supported in legacy Visio Services and we desperately need it back!
