When will this happen

We will begin rolling this out in early November and expect to complete in late January 2022.

How this will affect your organization

By default, this new Visio web app will be available to all Microsoft 365 commercial plan subscribers in your organization. This web app is not a replacement for existing Visio subscription plans but intended to meet the essential diagramming needs of Microsoft 365 users.

The new Visio web app is designed to provide Microsoft 365 users in your organization access to the core functionalities of Visio. It will enable users to create, edit, and collaborate on Visio diagrams from virtually anywhere, and at any time.

Main benefits

  • Easy to create professional diagrams: A simple Getting Started experience offers a selection of pre-crafted starter diagrams and contextual tips and tricks to help you quickly create diagrams.
  • Seamless collaboration: Lets you edit diagrams and flowcharts simultaneously with colleagues who are also using Visio and encourage greater collaboration on diagrams with in-app presence and shape-specific comments.
  • Integrated experience: You can collaborate on Visio files directly in Teams, create data-driven Visio diagrams in excel, and easily add diagrams in Word, Excel, and PowerPoint documents.

Once this feature is rolled out to you, the Visio tile will be available in ‘All apps’ on www.office.com, or you can visit https://visio.office.com/ to get started.

What you need to do to prepare

No action is required to enable this no cost feature.

Please notify your users about this new capability available in Microsoft 365 suite.

We would like to remind you that you are able to control the self-service purchase of Visio paid plans for your organization’s users at any time.
