Visio Online is a cloud service that allows users to access charts, graphs, and diagrams from anywhere on any device.

Starting today, Visio Online is available to almost all Office 365 enterprise users.

Today, Visio Online opens the online viewing experience to almost all Office 365 commercial users, boosting productivity for everyone on your team, no matter where they’re working. In addition to Visio Online, we’ve released JavaScript APIs for IT professionals to extend Visio capabilities to meet specific user needs.

The Visio team has steadily released more and more features to increase mobility across your organization. In November 2016, we brought Visio Online Public Preview for a group of Office 365 users—and their feedback was fantastic! Since then, we’ve enabled Visio Online for VSD file format and for users who are using email through Exchange Online, Outlook.com and Hotmail. In addition to online viewing, we’re excited to announce commenting for Visio Online, giving you and your team a place to review and discuss process flows, shape data and more without switching windows.

Create custom Visio Online solutions to meet your needs

We are also releasing Visio JavaScript APIs that extend the capabilities of Visio Online for developers. Using these APIs, IT professionals can now build rich mashup solutions to meet their organization’s specific needs.

The APIs enable programmatic access to the embedded Visio Online diagrams in a SharePoint Online page. Developers can use them to interact with Visio diagram elements—like pages and shapes—expose diagram data, write custom handlers for mouse events, create visual mark-ups on the diagram canvas and more. As a mashup example, developers can create a custom overlay, such as a list of steps required to complete before moving forward in a process, that appears when users select or hover over a diagram shape.

The Office Dev Center has detailed instructions as well as technical details for the Javascript APIs with Visio Online. The Visio team also invites users to use the Visio Online UserVoice for suggestions, questions, or comments about Visio Online.
