  1. 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.

  2. 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"

  3. 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.

  5. 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…

  6. 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!

  10. Tag users in #comments with notifications

    Ability to use something like '@' to tag other users in my org or with document permissions so that a question or comment can be directed to them within a comment. Then that user could be notified of the new comment that refers to them.

  11. Support for patent drawings

    Patent drawings have very strict but simple requirements, including:
    - certain page dimensions (A4 or US letter),
    - numbered pages (e.g. "1/2" centered at the top of the first of two pages, within the margins),
    - certain margins(top/left/right/bottom: 2.5/2.5/1.5/1.0 cm),
    - line drawings with thick black lines (1pt), and
    - no colours or shading.

    A template that provided these features would be great, or alternatively the ability to import templates or modify these elements of the page directly would work too.

    In addition to functionality, one or two additional elements in the shape library would help. Curved callouts are customary…

  12. Is it really a big problem add to MS Visio “round coordinate mode”? Now, after copying, (with grid) new object looks so ugly.

  14. Add ability to Drag and Drop tabs

    I've spent a lot of time creating tab content only to realize that I need to add related tabs. I can't drag them into the correct order like I can with Excel online.

  17. Allow control of more UI features via the Visio Online API

    It would be very useful if the Visio Online API gave us more control over which built-in UI components are visible to the user.

    We're currently working on a project where we're wrapping the Visio Online viewer and then integrating some additional features and data provided by one of our apps.

    In order to provide a more integrated user experience, we would like to be able to at least control the following features via a settings in the API:

    * Which controls are visible in the main toolbar (e.g: breadcrumb, Document Name, buttons, etc)

    * Whether the hyperlink pop-up window…

  18. Need a stencil or template to do electrical drawings such as single line diagrams, and electrical schematics. Need electrical symbols.

    Need the ability to do single line electrical drawings or electrical schematics. There are some templates there that are geared more towards networking systems. These do not have the correct terminology or the correct symbols. Other than that, systems works great.

  20. Search, find objects through multiple pages

    It would be great if we can do a search or find objects through multiple pages in Visio Online. Currently, you can only find objects if you are on that page where the object(s) is/are located.
