      • 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.

        • Allow home users to purchase or license Visio and/or Visio Online

          I want to use Visio at home for personal projects without a work or school account. I already pay for Office 365 Home. I don't mind paying $5-6 per month extra for Visio Online, but I am not allowed to even try.

          • 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 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.

                • 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…

                    • Make Visio Online part of Office365 Home

                      Consider opening Visio online free to Microsoft OneDrive users. That is, the free account that you can get with Windows/Microsoft account (like is done presently with other Web/Online versions of the Office tools; OneNote, Word, Excel, etc.) or at least Office365 Home subscription users. Google has free diagraming and drawing tool as part of Google docs online and Microsoft needs consumer/students mindshare. If you open it up, consumer pull through will spill into the enterprise.

                      • Visio Azure A/D Network/System scan tool

                        Give Azure Active Direcrory an added tool that can scan your cloud and on prem system and network.

                        Once this tool indentifies each device it then places it into a live online diagram.

                        This would be a huge plus for every single Sys Admin/ Network admin.

                        • Support Entity Relationship Diagrams

                          It would be great to see support for the creation of crow's-foot Entity Relationship Diagrams in Visio Online. It's possible to do a basic ERD without crows-foot relationship representations with the SDL > Divided Process, but it's not very easy and the lack of crows-foot notation is an issue.

                            • 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).

                                      • 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.

                                        • 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!
