Basic tasks in Visio Online

Visio Online is a new way to view and share Visio drawings on the web. You first upload a .vsdx file to the cloud on either OneDrive for Business or SharePoint Online. Then people can view the file in a web browser, even if they don’t have Visio installed. Visio Online is currently in preview release so that customers can get an idea of what it’s like.
