  2. Ishikawa/fishbone diagram

    I often need to do root cause analysis and have to use third party tools for a lot of the lean six sigma tools, many of these are easily generated, however ishikawa diagrams can be a real pain with formatting.

    examples can be found here https://www.google.se/search?q=ishikawa+diagram&source=lnms&tbm=isch&sa=X&ved=0ahUKEwigw7CKpqHeAhVJjiwKHVdNDL8Q_AUIDigB&biw=1536&bih=675

    a dynamically arranged version of this would be really useful to save a lot of time

  3. Search, find objects through multiple pages

    It would be great if we can do a search or find objects through multiple pages in Visio Online. Currently, you can only find objects if you are on that page where the object(s) is/are located.

  4. 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

  5. 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…

  7. New file template management for SPO document library – Visio files not working!

    The new SharePoint file template management solution as referenced in the article below does not appear to work with Visio files.

    https://techcommunity.microsoft.com/t5/Microsoft-SharePoint-Blog/Announcing-new-file-template-management-for-document-library/bc-p/257976#M2731

    When clicking on Add template, it is possible to upload and see templates appear for all other office file types (Word, Excel, PowerPoint), however Visio files do not get added when performing this operation.

  10. Fix Unwanted User-Defined Shape Data Value Truncation in VSDX Drawings

    Problem. A user-defined shape value is unexplainably truncated to 0.00E0 in some (but not all) shapes when saved as a .vsdx-formatted drawing.

    Desired Outcome.The original (correct) shape value is 1.00E-7 when saved as a .vsd drawing and should be the value for the .vsdx drawing.

    Observation. In Visio 2013 + 2016, when a .vsd drawing with a "bus" shape is saved, closed, and opened as a .vsdx drawing, the user-defined shape value for failure rate changes from a numerical value of 1.00E-7 to 0.00E0. This behavior does not occur with every shape. For example, the failure rate for "Bus, substation"…

  11. Show rulers and scale of diagrams/objects

    I can't tell how large my diagram is when viewing it in the browser because there is no measurements. When clicking on objects, I'd love to see their dimensions as well.

  12. Add datasource Office 365 Users Connection

    Like PowerApps, please add the Office 365 Users Connection as a datsource. My use-case is building an advanced org chart which includes user profile information. O365 integration is a way that Visio Online can outshine visio desktop.

  13. If a Visio diagram in a SharePoint web part has only one page, don't show 'page 1' in the tool bar at the bottom of the web part.

    Allow the tools on the tool bar to be configured as hidden so that the UI is cleaner, and the diagram looks like an embedded picture.
