      • Visio Online Web Part

        Like the Visio Services web part, please can we have the ability to have Visio Online as a web part such that it allows customisation and connectivity to other web parts.

        (Very useful functionality that exists within Visio Services.)

        • Layers Visibility/Selection

          It would be very useful to have the ability to show/hide specific layers on the diagram as in the Visio interface, or provide a way to control this via a Javascript Mashup.

          • 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!

              • 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…

                • 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.

                    • 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

                        • 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.

                          • Export to image

                            Would be great to have this either for the end user or even as a developer API. At the moment we're having to rely on some code dating back to 2012 which doesn't work server side on Sharepoint Online..

                              Please provide a way of opening linked diagrams in the same tab. Currently, when we click on a link to open another diagram, it will be opened in a new tab, and many of our customers dislike ending up with a large number of tabs in their browser.

                              • 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.

                                • Embed a Visio document

                                  Embed a Visio document just like you can with Word Online.

                                  https://support.office.com/en-us/article/Embed-a-Word-document-in-your-blog-0faa0253-2751-44bf-8486-ea7837fe7db1?ui=en-US&rs=en-US&ad=US&fromAR=1

                                  This would allow us to embed our documents into other systems and services like I can do with Lucidchart. I would look to switch products if I could do this.

                                  • Visio online: open a linked diagram (in another vsd file) in the browser

                                    We have Visio files in a SharePoint library. When the user clicks on a file the diagram opens in Visio Online.

                                    However when you click in this diagram on a link (collapsed process) to another visio diagram, which is stored as another Visio in the same library then currently the only option is to download that file or open it in the Visio deskptop app.

                                    Please make it possible to use your browser to navigate through different diagrams, that are stored in different Visio files on sharepoint (is if they were webpages).

                                      • Panning and Pinch Zooming

                                        Can we please have panning and pinch-zooming - navigating through diagrams using the old zoom control and browser scroll bars seems so old fashioned.
