    • enable refresh of data to add/delete shapes in visual

      atm you can refresh data in a visio but you must then manually add/delete shapes from your diagram, would be nice to see this automated

        • Import Visio diagram into the Power BI instead of link to the Visio file

          Would prefer actually import the Visio diagram into the Power BI file, instead of an external link to Office 365.

          When I have multiple Visio diagrams linked to a Power BI report, loading/rendering them very time consuming, and sometimes it would end up fail. Also, if I am to share the Report/Dashboard with Visio diagram with others in my organization, does it mean that I need to share the Visio file as well? It could be a big problem.

          • Make zoom during cross-filter an optional setting

            When doing cross-filtering, Visio diagram will do a zoom and highlight. I want to choose if zoom happens or not. Making this as a setting.

            • Individual Settings for Each Shape

              There should be the ability to have different color thresholds/properties for each shape on a process diagram. I am trying to visualize bottlenecks in our processes with green/yellow/red. Unfortunately, there are different threshold levels for each step of the process, but the preview release won't allow for that.

              Please feel free to get in contact with me as I would like to demo exactly what I have in mind.

              • Dynamic diagram URL

                The url for the visio diagram should be an input that can be set via a measure. This would allow the diagram to change based on filters etc. on the page.

                • Select multiple objects in Visio

                  One should be able to select multiple objects at the same time, like shift mouse click select in PowerBI slicer.

                  • Have Visio tabs shown in PowerBI

                    One can make tabbed Visio file, but the tabs are not shown in PowerBI. This would be very useful when you have for example several floor plans in a building.

                    • Color picker

                      When I try the new Visio visual in Power BI, the hex and RGB values don't seem to work. I can use the graphical color picker, but when I copy paste a hex value, nothing happens.

                      • Have default selection option

                        It would be nice to have default selection option, so that for example some measurements would be always selected, and user would have an option to select extra measurements from Visio plugin.

                        • Available colors based on (imported) theme

                          The colors available within Visio should match the (imported) theme so all graphs have the same look and feel.

                          • Need to see values being displayed as more than text and color.

                            I expect number formatting will allowed soon for the future version. Such as integer/real, numbers of decimal, currency, etc.

                            • Auto generate data for Visio shapes

                              Auto create data to shapes like it is possible in Excel when I set up a cell as a shape. I use this to build a top view of warehouses to visualize the warehouse and project all types of movements to show the customer operational bottle necks based on actual data. Also to show what happens when we change strategies with direct results based on the same data sets. Today we create this in Excel with the problem that customers seldom have the right version and they will mess up the Excel with just 1 wrong click.

                              • Hierarchy of Visio diagrams

                                A longterm feature which the current UI couldn't support, but I'm just planting the seed...:

                                Multi-level Visio diagram, such that clicking on a sub-process would jump to the appropriate detailed diagram for that diagram.

                                Not sure how this could be handled by the UI, since 1 overview diagram would easily require 5+ sub-diagrams.

                                Two biggest use cases being for flowcharts and floorplans (drilling down an office's department displays the floorplan for that department).

                                  This is a great start, would love it if we could hover over each individual Visio object to show the mapped value like with other power bi visuals

                                  • Dynamic colour ranges as you drill down and filter

                                    It would be great if there was a switch that allowed the numerical colour ranges to dynamically change as you filter/drill down into the data. Perhaps you could just define 'number of buckets' and then as the data is filtered/drilled down it would automatically create the new colour ranges based on the no. buckets.

                                    E.g. Say you have data that aggregates to 200 for the entire column in a table - where 200 equals the total hours worked by an individual for ALL tasks.

                                    Therefore, presently, the color buckets for this data set may initially be automatically (or manually) set…

                                    • Samples with common use cases

                                      Huge potential and I think having great samples will let people get comfortable using it. A marketing pipeline with MailChimp data for example or a process flow diagram with work item data from vsts or an azure architecture (like armviz generates from a resource group) combined with ea consumption data and estimates. These seem common for the “all in” Microsoft cloud users who will be a good early adopting group to spread the word.
