Visio Data Visualizer Add-in for Excel

Update: Microsoft will be moving away from UserVoice sites on a product-by-product basis throughout the 2021 calendar year. We will leverage 1st party solutions for customer feedback. Learn more
  1. 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.

  2. Update diagram title from Excel Add-in

    This work item is to track enabling users update the diagram title from DV add-in in Excel itself instead of going to Visio Online to update it.

    I will merge all the exiting feedback items for update title to this one so we can track them all in a single place.

    Would request you all to upvote this and/or provide your comments if you would like to have this feature implemented and not create a new work item for this.

    Thank you!

  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. 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.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

  7. 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. MindMap template with grouping/rolling up/down would be super useful

    or other way to organize mindstorming, where multi-tree structure would be nice (multiple core nodes, categories, dependencies, drilling trough views and details etc.

  18. Synchronizing the Add-In content in Excel Online and Excel Desktop

    Hi there,

    I created a new Excel file in Excel-Online and then additionally opened the file in Excel Desktop, so that both are open in parallel. When, for example, I edit cells, these edits are synchronized between the files. That's fine. In the online version, I added the Visio Data Visualizer from the Add-Ins. This worked and the Add-In pane/shape also immediately appears in the file opened in Excel Desktop.

    I selected a basic flowchart in the file opened in Excel Online. The Add-In inserted a table and shows the diagramm. But that is not (!) synchronized with the same…

  19. Orphaned files on OneDrive

    Hi there,

    when I insert a new visio chart in a e.g. newly created but unsaved Excel file, the Add-In adds a new file to my OneDrive folder for the data visualization (I am in this case logged in to Office 365 in Excel and in the Add-In).

    If I close the Excel file without saving or just delete the Add-In shape, then the created file in OneDrive is not deleted or at least marked that it is e.g. unused. So, that could lead to many orphaned files in my OneDrive - meaning visio visualizations which are not linked to…
