I have a requirement to add a Visio diagram that contains links to SharePoint pages connected to the shapes in the diagram. How would I do that? I have no experience with Visio, and I found instructions on how to add hyperlinks to shapes, but I'm not having any luck finding out how to embed the clickable diagram on a SharePoint page. Is there a web part I can use, or is it more complicated than that?

Thank you! I personally don't have Visio, so the user will need to add the links... the links will be pointing to other SharePoint pages in the site. So there is a Viso web part? What format does the file need to be saved as?

If they have Visio 2013, they won't need to do anything special, that was actually something to be concerned with in older versions of Visio and SP.

Here are some instructions from SP 2010, I'm not sure if they still apply to SPonline, but they may
Override the Web Drawing’s default initial view
By default, when a Web drawing opens it displays the page that was open when the diagram was last saved, and at the same zoom level and pan position. You can override this to display the view as it is set when you select this option and click Apply or OK

I actually saw that, but I found no setting to override that. I've asked the document author to save it at a higher zoom level, hopefully that will work, but I wanted to have another option in case that doesn't work. That statement on

Yes I know, but I'm predicting the site owner will want the diagram larger on the page. It shouldn't be that difficult, right?

The customer said the diagram is zoomed to 96% in Visio, so why is it reduced to 44% in the web part? Even if I make the web part huge, the diagram is still tiny (44%). Maybe we can try using pdf?
