  1. Color gradient option for a color range

    It would be great if there was an option on each color range that would create a gradient between two colors.

    Currently it is very hard to create a nice fade.

  2. Values to format line thickness

    Would be good if the value could set the line thickness or style of a shape. This would allow indication of 2 values on a single shape, one by colour and another by the line thickness or style.

  4. 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.

  6. Alpha value in color picker resets to 100 all too often

    When choosing a color, if you pick an Alpha value other than 100, and click/tab to an RGB value, the Alpha value resets to 100. After you get what you want, if you go back into the color chooser again, and do nothing, but click off the dialog, the Alpha resets to 100 and you have to hope you remembered the right value and go back and set it again.

  8. Position BUG

    With Visio Rack device schemes, there is a position bug. If selecting in PBI Visio Visual, highlighting has big position offset.

  9. SharePoint login prompt

    When a user (who is not logged into SharePoint) is viewing a Visio visual in a PowerBI report, they are usually prompted to sign into SharePoint which is intended. However sometimes they just receive a message saying "Sorry, something went wrong
    Access is denied. (Exception from HRESULT: 0x80070005 (E_ACCESSDENIED))" with no place for them to login. Is there anyway you can fix this so it asks them to sign in 100% of the time instead of just giving them an error message? Thanks!

  10. Allow to color different shapes on different criteria in one visual

    Lets say we have a visual of office created in visio and two tables (datasets) one considering employee performance (some kind of grade) and second one lets say date when monitor was manufactured. It would be great that we can color men and monitors based on two different criteria (grade for men, and date manufactured for monitors). That would definitely be useful, maybe not so much on this example as in general.

  11. Allow non-interactive layers to be rendered in grayscale

    Allowing a document to be rendered in grayscale would enable visual queries to receive clearer attention. For example, if you have a floor plan and want to higlight free desks, then the desks could render in green and the rest of the diagram in gray(scale). This is possible in Visio currently, but means that every shape needs to carry both its 'normal' RGB and its grayscale equivalent. This is probably better attached at layer level and could then be used in Desktop, Online and PowerBI.

  15. 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

  16. 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.

    planned  ·  Rohan Shah responded

    Thanks for sharing your feedback! Support for entering hex value is planned.

  17. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
