  1. 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.

  4. Power BI

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

  5. 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…

  7. 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.

  8. 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"

  9. 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.

  10. 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!

  11. 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.

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

  18. 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.

  20. 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…
