  1. Remove or reduce the requirement for Visio Online

    I'm finding a common deal-breaker is the $5+ / month / author for a Visio Online Plan to edit a visual. It’s such a dumb requirement it’s embarrassing to present to a client. So much admin hassle for such a trivial amount, and on top of a Visio license which is already an additional cost for most organisations.

    There’s a deathly silence on this visual since the GA on blogs, twitter etc. It seems a shame as I presume a lot of people worked hard to get this ready, and it could probably do a lot better job than the…

  4. Ability to display a label based on another column

    Rather than the object label displaying the ID, it would be useful to be able to display a label based on another column.

  6. Shape count statistics in Visio Visual

    Word has Review \ Proofing \ Word Count button that opens a dialog with simple statistics.

    The Visio Custom Visual has a shape count limit, but it is too difficult for a Visio user to know what this is. I suggest a Shape Count button and dialog to assist with this.

  7. 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.

  12. 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.

  13. 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.

  15. Be able to remove the Zoom from Visualization and choose the color behind it.

    Hi,

    We are using Visio Visualization in Power BI to show a “Green Cross”, statistic about incident and accident in the plant. This report is shown on a TV and we want it to be clean so we don’t need to show the zoom and want it to have the right color behind.

    Is there any chance that you can update Visio Visualization, in some future, so that it will be possible to hide the zoom part and choose a color for the parts around?

    Thanks.

  17. Multiple shapes/object to be linked to one ID

    Many a time user need to link multiple shapes/object to a same ID. This usually happens in any process flow or architecture diagram. So there should be option to link one ID with multiple shapes/objects. Just like CTRL+select multiple object and link to one ID

  20. Power BI

    The ability to change the Text color when you change the color of the object from Visio.

    We have a name that we are coloring based on the %. When the color changes it would be nice to change the color of the text to make it easier to read for that color.
