  1. Visual diagram is not loading in power bi

    Visio Diagram is not loading in power bi. I input the sharepoint URL for the visio digram and then it shows "Sign in" button. Clicking on this "Sign In" button just pops-up a blank browser window.
    I am not able to use this custom visual at all. Please help.

    Regards,
    Imran

    • Ability to edit the URL already added

      Once you put the URL in for the Visio you want to reference, you are then unable to review where this visio is saved or edit it to change it to another one. You would need to rebuild the whole thing from scratch to use a different Visio.

      • 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.

          A new feature has been released to allow users to set auto-zoom setting to ON or OFF.
          Inserting a new Visio visual in your report will show the auto-zoom setting in the Format tab of the Visualization pane in Power BI. Existing reports should be refreshed to show this feature for Visio visual. Please drop an email to tellvisio@microsoft.com for any issues around this.

          Thanks,
          Shakun

        • Streaming data to update live Visio tile

          Preliminary testing seems to indicate that a Visio visual built on a streaming dataset and pinned to a tile does not update when the dataset updates.
          Please consider enabling this.

          • Refresh shape feature should be available

            We can refresh data but looks like there is no way we can refresh an updated visio diagram in Power BI. We need to reload the visio diagram and due course the data mapping is lost. Now we need to re-bind the data. It would be great if we have a feature of reloading the updated diagram and just map the data for newly added blocks.

              Refresh the diagram by expanding the field mapping window and clicking on Refresh diagram button.

            • Allow import of Visio diagrams from desktop.

              Independent analyst need this source expansion.

                Visio custom visual is now supported on Power BI Desktop (version >= August 2017)

              • Allow zoom and pan of the chart

                Add buttons for zooming and allow mouse dragging to move around a chart.
