  6. 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.

  7. 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…

  8. 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.

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

  10. 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.

  11. Draw flowcharts with Pen and ink

    With the Surface products heavily focused on pen and ink inputs, it would be awesome if Visio supported a true pen and inking experience for drawing flowcharts and diagrams. Once a user physically draws their diagram(s) and / or flowcharts with their pen and ink, then convert that diagram into digital with corresponding workflows.

  12. 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.

  15. 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 is shown…

  20. Visio Online 'Editable' App Part

    We need the ability to edit Visio Online diagrams within an app part so we can have custom functionality linked to the edits being made.

    E.g., connect two shapes in the Visio Online diagram canvas > press a submit button > kick off an MS Flow
