  1. 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.

  2. Add the back button for hyperlinked tabs available in the web viewer as it is in the desktop application

    I publish BPMN process documents created in Visio on SharePoint to be opened in Visio online by standard users. In the Desktop App there is a back button in the quick links top left that allows you to go back to a parent process after drilling into a hyperlinked sub process tab. This is invaluable with large complex processes. I can't find this functionality in the web viewer and would be immensely helpful if it were.

  4. 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.

  5. Network Diagram Connector

    Please make a connector for network diagrams that has multiple text fields that are pinned at the beginning, middle, and end of the connector. This will be used when drawing network connections where the middle text box shows the cable/connection ID, and each end shows the port number.

  7. 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.

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  10. 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.

  12. Ability to Change Shape

    Once you drag or select a shape on the drawing you can't change it. I don't always pick right the first time :)

  13. Enhance JS API to suppress Find in Shape Data

    When using the Find command it returns results (shapes) that have ShapeData matching the search term.

    As part of our solution, we hide Shape Info, yet the Find command will still return those shapes which will confuse our users.

    Please extend the API so we can specify whether the Find searches Shape Text only.

  14. 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…

  15. 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.

  18. Readable resolution for data linked diagrams: Large data linked Visio diagrams with 'allow refresh' selected display at a low resolution.

    Apparently not a bug: Large data linked Visio diagrams with 'allow refresh' selected display at a low resolution. Higher resolution required - or at least a readable resolution.

  20. 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.
