Visio Data Visualizer Add-in for Excel

  1. It is completely unusable.

    I'd love to use it but I get nothing but error messages.

    Here's my latest issue- I created two tabs with a data visualizer then saved it- all fine. Two issues: -

    1) Next day I open a new tab in the same workbook, open a hybrid organizational chart and get 'Sorry, we couldn't create the diagram with the inserted table'. Repeatedly.

    2) I now cannot even edit the original tabs, I get 'An unexpected error occurred, click "reload" and try again". Repeatedly.

  2. Support generation of BPMN 2 diagrams with Visio Data Visualizer out of the box

    Currently, the MS Visio Data Visualizer add-in allows you to generate business process diagrams in the form of either basic Flow Charts and Cross-Functional Flow Charts. However, business processes are more typically documented using BPMN 2 (OMG's Business Process Model and Notation 2). Visio already allows BPMN diagrams to be exported to MS Flow (i.e. now Power Automate). Although it is possible to manually configure Visio Data Visualizer add-in to produce BPMN diagrams, I would like to see this as an in-built capability.

  3. Allow shape order to be defined for Org Charts from DV

    The Person shapes in an Org Chart should be ordered in the same order as the source table. This would allow normal Excel sorting, including PowerQuery, to define the shape order on each branch

  4. Make it actually work

    I am unable to create any diagram with this. The add-in just gets stuck on the "creating diagram" loading screen, no matter which diagram I select. I am on Excel 16.0.11929.20586 64-bit (Office 365) on Windows 10.

  5. How about adding a close box after opening the add-in?

    Opened in tab of excel file and now can't get rid of the window. Removed the add-in and now it give "Trust" prompt which when clicked reinstalls the add-in. So far acting more like virus than add-in

  7. Change the layout in an organizational chart.

    The functionality is great and it is easy to create a chart. However, it would be great to change the layout once the chart has been generated. This is necessary to save screen real-estate.

  8. Visio Data Visualizer - Add Sub-Process capabilities

    Currently, there is no facility to create a sub-process from a single Excel table. Instead, you have to create separate tables and then manually link the separate flowcharts in Visio. It would be great to have the ability to do everything in one table and have them separated out in Visio through off-page references, as this facilitates the presentation of complex diagrams to external stakeholders. Usually these are sent in PDF version as most external viewers would not have a Visio license. The off-page references help easily navigate the sub-processes within a PDF document as they act as clickable links.

  11. Source table cannot be changed

    Allow source table to be choose - not created every time by Vision
    Allow size shapes to be edited
    Allow zoom to be selected and edited
    Allow title to be modified

  12. Without Visio licence it is pretty basic and therefore useless.

    Without Visio licence it is pretty basic and therefore useless. Don't vast your time. There are many free alternatives on the net.

  13. Naming the created drawings on OneDrive through the Add-In

    Hi there,

    I tried out the Data Visualizer - awesome. However, I have some suggestions for the Add-In, the first one in this thread.

    When creating a new visio chart with the Add-In, these files are stored in my One Drive. These files are named Drawing.vsdx, Drawing 1.vsdx, Drawing 2.vsdx and so on. In the long run, however, this will be quite confusing - e.g. if I create a lot of drawings in several Excel files. The suggestion is to be able to name the drawings - even if I don't have a Visio subscription.

    Please see screenshot here: https://1drv.ms/u/s!AhLijMF6Rixd2Q5pwds6QiLJR7Xt

  17. Select existing data

    As a user creating a new diagram I want to be able to select an existing table that contains my process data. Currently the Add-in must create the data table.
