Visio Online Public Preview 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.

Zoom with the slider
Zoom in and out of the drawing using the slider in the lower-right corner.
Pan and zoom
Click on the Pan & Zoom window icon to bring up the Pan & Zoom window. If you do not see a blue box, drag inside the Pan & Zoom window to create a blue box. The blue box indicates the region of the page that is shown in the drawing window. You can move and draw the blue box to pan and zoom, respectively.
View shape data
Click a shape.
Then click Shape Info to see its metadata.
If a shape has hyperlinks, you’ll see a link icon on the top right of the shape. You can directly access the hyperlinks by clicking on the shape.
Tip: Hyperlinks are also available in the Shape Info pane.
Quickly search for every occurrence of a word, number, or phrase on that page by clicking the three dots and then Find (or press Ctrl+F). Results appear next to your diagram. Visio will search in Shape names, Shape text, Shape data, and User-defined cells. Clicking on a search result navigates you directly to the relevant shape.
Go to other pages
Navigate to other pages in the file by clicking the tabs in the lower left.
Share with others
Because your drawing is saved online, you can share it by sending a link instead of an email attachment. People can view it in any web browser – regardless if they have the Visio desktop application or not. Just click Share in the upper right.
If you need to edit a diagram, you can use the Visio 2016 or Visio 2013 desktop applications. Click Open Diagram > Edit in Visio.
