To provide a quick recap, the Visio Data Visualizer add-in for Excel enables you to create high quality Visio diagrams—including basic flowcharts, cross-functional flowcharts (or swim lane diagrams), and organizational charts—from data directly in Excel.

 

The add-in was released for public preview to all Office 365 subscribers in November 2019 and is available through the Office Store. No Visio subscription is required to use the add-in.

 

To address one of the most popular questions from users since the public preview announcement, we’re providing you with an overview of how to deploy the add-in using the admin center and Centralized Deployment—the recommended way for admins to deploy add-ins to users via a group or to everyone in the tenant.

 

Note: If, as an end user, you do not have access to the Office Store, reach out to your tenant admin. Access to the Office Store and its add-ins can be turned on or off in the admin center by selecting User owned apps and services under the Settings > Services & add-ins page.

 

This document provides more details about how to deploy an Office add-in using the admin center and how to turn on add-in acquisition for everyone in a tenant. Please see below for a quick look at the Centralized Deployment feature.

Enabling at the tenant level

  • Log in to the Microsoft 365 admin center. From the left sidebar, go to Settings > Add-ins > Deploy Add-in.CentralizedDeployment_1.jpg

     

  • The deploy new add-in wizard will open. Select the Choose from Store option and search for “Microsoft Visio Data Visualizer”.CentralizedDeployment_2.jpg

     

  • After selecting the Visio add-in, you will be directed to the licensing terms and privacy policy for review.CentralizedDeployment_3.jpg

     

  • As an admin, you can choose if you want to enable the add-in for the entire organization or a limited set of users/groups.CentralizedDeployment_4.jpg

     

  • After the user selection is made, deploy the add-in. Once the add-in is deployed for the tenant it will show up in the add-in list.CentralizedDeployment_5.jpg
