  1. 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

  2. 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.

  3. 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.

  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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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.

  8. 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…

  9. 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.
