Visio Data Visualizer Add-in for Excel

  1. The general idea & functionality is striking, but 3 most annoying issues have to be resolved

    (1) on each visit of a Visio graph a "refresh" happens which seems to take ages and always ends with an error calling for a "re-read".

    (2) it seems impossible to fix or save the zoom & focus of Visio org charts being created

    (3) for org charts there is a limit of 150 elements. The related error came up only once after hours of usage with larger org charts "updating" forever.

  2. 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.

  4. size

    How to be able to resize the Addin place holder in excel so we can have readeable diagram in Excel. This schema seams to be limited in size through the generation. I have been able to switch it to landscape but this does not changes the game here.

  5. 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.

  6. 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.

There are several ways by which a user can recover the excel files i.e, by using a manual method or by using the Excel recovery tool. With the excel recovery tool, you can easily recover the highly damaged or corrupted Excel files in few simple clicks.
    The tool is simple, easy to use, and recovers the Excel file without affecting the quality of your file.

  17. 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.

  19. 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
