  1. 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.

      • 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.

        • Allow line control nodes on connectors to snap to other connectors

          When placing lines that lay along the same path as another there seems to be no way to snap overlapping lines to each other, or to the start/end nodes of other lines.
          It would make things neater.

          • Fill a property on shapes by vba code

            Hey guys, Im on a new project in my company and I need to make some things in Visio 2016.

            I want to write a vba code that create a property in shape data and then fill it with the container's shape name. Is there possible?

            Ive already wrote a code that creat a property "Setor" in all shapes on the page, but I need to fill this property with the name of a container the shapes are into.

            The code that Im using is this:

            Private Sub Setorizacao()

            Dim visShape As Visio.shape
            Dim visPage As Visio.Page

            Set visPage =…

              • Allow picture resizing to keep aspect ratio

                The instructions say this happens when grabbing a corner. It doesn't.

                • 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 dynamic data binding

                    I have a diagram linked to a SharePoint list. How can I dynamically bind my diagram shapes to different data rows? For example with a list web part on the same page, how can I make the diagram respond to the selected list row? Since creating a custom data provider is not possible in SharePoint Online, what is the alternative? Is this possible through the API?

                    • Use visio online from Provider Hosted Application in SharePoint

                      We have Visio Files stored in a SharePoint list and would like to use them in a Provider Hosted Application in SharePoint. We tried some situations but keep having issues with cross domain scripts, because the Provider Hosted Application lives on an App Web which has a different domain (https://<tenant>-<guid>.sharepoint.com) than the host web (https://<tenant>.sharepoint.com).

                      Is there already a solid working solution for this?

                      • 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.

                            • 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.

                                • 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.

                                    • 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.
