  1. 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.

    • 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).

      • 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.

        • 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

          • 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…

            • 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.

                • Power BI data shown as data bars on Visio visual

                  Please allow PBI data to be represented as speedometer or any other databars of Visio.

                  • Show Power BI Data as Icons on Visio Visual

                    Today i see that PBI data is represented as Colors / Text. I would love to represent that as icons like up arrow, down arrow.
