  1. import shapes

    Want the ability to import shapes like you can in the desktop version of Visio. Or be faster about adding shapes that are requested (like AWS shapes). You added Azure shapes, but we also use AWS. draw.io has both AWS and Azure and I am forced to use that program due to I am using a Mac (no desktop Visio) and Visio Online doesn't have AWS shapes.

        • 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…

          • 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.

            • Can't import Visio template libraries

              The available drawing objects is extremely limited. Even third party browser based tools allow one to import Visio libraries. I want to sketch out our Azure cloud infrastructure and I can't do that effectively without the right objects. Funny... either Microsoft doesn't want us to use Azure or they don't want us to use Visio Online... please decide.

                • Enable more basic edit function between files - such as copy and paste!

                  Visio online is really not very useful as is. It does not show basic functions, such as gridlines, to help line up content. It does not allow basic 'cut and paste' from one Visio document to another (for creating similar but other diagrams), it does not allow cut and paste of images to a Word document (so to utility of the whole software is about zero). I really do not understand what value this product has - as is, it is rather in-useful... (Also, it does not save properly. I lost a file that I spent much time on, because…

                      • Print View or Export to PDF (viewer)

                        Please provide the ability to Print and/or save to PDF, when using Visio Online viewer.
                        In my orgainisation, only a limited number of people are creating process maps, and have access to the full clients or Online Editor licences. The majority of people are consuming these processes using the online viewer. Not having a native print function is a show-stopper for us, particularly with senior management who like to print this kind of content and annotate.

                          • Allow editing on phones

                            When editing, I get the restriction message 'can't edit on anything less than 9 inches'.
                            I can do a whole PowerPoint presentation on a phone, which seems much more complex. I'm on an iPhone X, but any of the phones, new iPad Pros (with pencil support!).

                            I liked where Microsoft is going - any device, any time, any where.
                            Please let Visio march along to that!

                              Display list of sheets such that the user can select from a wider variety of sheets than the ones at the bottom. Alternatively recenter the selected sheet after selecting it so that traversing diagrams with many sheets can be done faster

                                  • Ishikawa/fishbone diagram

                                    I often need to do root cause analysis and have to use third party tools for a lot of the lean six sigma tools, many of these are easily generated, however ishikawa diagrams can be a real pain with formatting.

                                    examples can be found here https://www.google.se/search?q=ishikawa+diagram&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwigw7CKpqHeAhVJjiwKHVdNDL8Q_AUIDigB&biw=1536&bih=675

                                    a dynamically arranged version of this would be really useful to save a lot of time

                                      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.

                                      • 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
