  1. Configure embedded Visio toolbars

    Our company uses Visio diagrams (currently in the web part, figuring out how to switch to the embed code) in SharePoint sites as site navigation. The old web part allows us to turn off the toolbars within the web part so the diagram appears to just be on the page on its own, with no controls to zoom or change tabs, etc. We'd like this same capability with embeds done from Visio Online.

    • Allow importing of other or custom stencils - Splunk, AWS, etc

      Provide the ability to upload and/or store custom stencils sets, i.e., Splunk, AWS, or other customer stencils. Once imported, stencil set should be available to any new diagram for the user.

      • Please add networking shapes to visio online. This is a great platform to collaborate on high level design details for complex IP networks!

        It would be a huge help to have shapes or icons for high level IP network components. Having common components of modern networks would be HUGE!! Router, switch, firewall, load balancer, fiber, Ethernet, SD-WAN components, Data centers and company HQ and branch icons would be awesome!

        • Internet Explorer 11

          Embedded Visio diagrams currently have a message on them in Internet Explorer 11, that the browser is unsupported. Can IE 11 be supported? This is one of our officially supported browsers internally and it would be difficult to switch.

          • Remove embed border

            Embedded Visio files currently have a thin black line bordering them. Can this be removed? Many of the locations that we embed to have the same color background as the Visio file does, so this is unnecessary.

            • cross functional flowchart

              Add the Cross Functional Flowchart swimlane shapes to Visio Online! Flowcharts with swimlanes are much easier to understand.

                  • Please add Maps and Floor Plans

                    In the Desktop version you can plan Office Layouts which is very useful. It would be very good, to make it avaiable online too, so you can have the same experience as with the desktop version. There should be no difference between online and offline.

                          • org charts

                            It would be great to upload an Excel file with which we can generate an org chart. In the file are employees names, their job titles and their managers names. Instead fo manually make the org chart in Visio. This way updates will be easier as well.

                            • Visio Online integration with Microsoft Flow.

                              SharePoint workflows used to integrate with Visio, allowing developers to create a Visio Diagram that was easily understood and easily implemented as a workflow. It would be cool if you could build out a Microsoft Flow in Visio.

                                • Make it possible to de-select one or all shapes from the API.

                                  Currently there's no option to deselect all shapes. Deselecting one shape at a time will automatically select another one. In our scenario we would like to 'reset' it programmatically to have no selection at all, like when it's in initialized state.

                                  While we use the Visio embedded in our application we would like to use both navigating from within and outside the visio. We would like to keep the Visio selection in sync with the application itself to give the users a uniform experience whatever the way they navigate.

                                  • Allow document auto-save to be turned off

                                    Include a setting in Visio Online to allow the user to turn off the auto-save feature. My prefered mode would be to only save a document when I fully intend this to happen. This would allow me to freely open and close document safe in the knowledge that they would retain there original state. Under this scenario, if the auto-save setting were set to false, a Save button would become visible in the UI and the document would only be saved if this button was pressed. (The usual warnings could also be surfaced if you try and exit with the…

                                    • Improve the opening of desktop files in Visio Online

                                      I have lots of Visio files that were created in the (Windows) desktop version of Visio. So far, NOT A SINGLE FILE I have will open in Visio Online, with no feedback as to what features may be blocking.

                                      An improvement would be some sort of feedback, providing information about the feature(s) that are blocking the file from opening, so I can then clean the file in the desktop version.

                                      Alternatively, an export function to the Online version in the desktop version that strips all possibly offending features would also help.

                                        It would be great if it were possible to print from a preview screen, so you can print from a computer that does not have visio

                                        • Add Page Name Field in a Page Template

                                          In Visio Desktop and Visio Web Access, there is no problem leveraging the page name attribute as a dynamic field in a page template. (This eliminates redundancy and inconsistency). Currently, in Visio Online reader, this feature doesn't work for pages that leverage the template. The field remains static and just displays "Template", the page name for the template.
