  1. 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.

  3. Allow changing font type of text overlays

    Currently, text overlay is in Segoe UI font. and there is no way to change the font for Text values displayed in the Visio Visual (even though the Title font can be changed).
    Visio Visual should allow changing font to use Symbol, Wingdings, Webdings, etc.

  6. Import a Visio diagram from local store or network share

    Please allow import Microsoft Visio diagram from local store or network share to the Power BI.
    This is important feature when diagrams are not published in SPO or OneDrive but available inside local or network share.
    Thank You

  8. 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.

  9. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. Ability to drill to a detail page in power bi via drill through filters from the id field in the visio custom viz

    Ability to drill to a detail page in power bi via drill through filters using the id field in the visio custom visual.
    I want to use the Visio Custom Visual to show my network on the overview page of my Power Bi report, then select a node on the custom visual, right-click and drill through to a detail page for that node.

  13. Hover over Visio objects to show mapped value

    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

  14. Hyperlink on Visio no longer working

    Hi,
    Just few weeks back all our hyperlinks on visio were working on power bi. However, those hyperlinks have stopped working now.When user clicks on the objects, they just get highlighted. User can still open the hyperlinks by right clicking on visio shapes (box, lines etc.) and from the pop-up menu, selecting "Open in another tab". But I want the ability to navigate by clicking on the object rather than right click and select menu option.

    Could you please help me fix this problem?

  15. 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).

  16. 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.

  18. 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.

  19. 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.

  20. 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.
