  2. 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.

  4. 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.

  8. Allow document auto-save to be turned off

    Include a setting in Visio Online to allow the user to turn off the auto-save feature. My prefered mode would be to only save a document when I fully intend this to happen. This would allow me to freely open and close document safe in the knowledge that they would retain there original state. Under this scenario, if the auto-save setting were set to false, a Save button would become visible in the UI and the document would only be saved if this button was pressed. (The usual warnings could also be surfaced if you try and exit with the…

  9. Insert Hyperlinks

    I can not find a simple way to insert a hyperlink anywhere in the online Visio. If this feature does not exist, it would be nice to have. If it does, it would be nice to easily get to / understand.

  12. Add an Offline Mode similar to Outlook Web Access

    OWA for Office 365 let's you work offline if you enable offline mode in the settings. It would be great if this could be applied to Visio online also, for those occasions where WiFi is patchy.

    Even if you could just view existing diagrams would be a good start

  14. When an item is rotated, it seems really difficult to get it back to exactly level again. Can there be some type of "snap" to make easier?

    I LOVE this Visio Online program!!! I've been a Visio user since the early days (~ 20 years ago???), so since the new company I work for doesn't have the desktop version of Visio available, this is a great alternative for me.

    However, when an item is rotated, it seems really difficult to get it back to exactly level again. Can there be some type of "snap" to make easier?

  15. Be able to set a default zoom percentage on images (i.e. Visio). Default looks to be 44%.

    Be able to set a default zoom percentage on images (i.e. Visio). Default looks to be 44%. I posted a timeline in a section of my SharePoint site, and the default view doesn't allow you to see the content. I have to manually zoom in.

  17. Organisation Chart

    Org charts are notoriously cumbersome and constantly in need of revision. I have used simple flow charts to plot the organisation hierarchy but would love Visio to create a template so that we could simply add roles and their relationships.

  18. Display entire text for shape info, don't auto hide the text after a few seconds.

    Requesting to view the entire text for value in the shape Data under Vision Online -> Shape info.
    Also requesting that the data displayed should stay (not be hidden after a few seconds) as long as the mouse does not move out of the area.

  19. Create a UWP Web Wrapper

    I think a fairly simple UWP app that is essentially a web wrapper would be really useful. The UWP could be set as the default editor for Visio. If you open a local visio file it would offer to add the file to OneDrive.

    It could also offer a list of recent documents both inside the app and on the live tile. This would mean you don't have to write a full on app for editing as all that would be handled in a web view. This would just allow you to take full advantage of native features in Windows…
