Is the second screenshot (process repository) something that is possible at the moment with the modern sharepoint ui?

Here is a weird issue: we do not have Visio Online available...

User is licensed with E3 license, we get the option to open in Visio Online but still the file is downloading in the browser. PowerPoint, Excel and all the others just open in the browser by default.

 

Is there anything we can do to enable it or are there any prerequisites we need to keep into account?

Thanks for reaching out. If your Visio file is getting downloaded instead of opening in a browser, your administrator needs to deactivate SharePoint's OpenInClient feature settings.

 

You can find info on this particular setting here: https://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee837425.aspx?f=255&MSPPError=-2147217396

Thank you for your reply. Unfortunately I am the administrator and the OpenInClient feature is deactivated. I have entered a support ticket for this to troubleshoot.

Further testing shows all our .vsdx and .vsdm files open in the browser and none of the .vsd files open in the browser. Not sure if this is a specific issue for our tenant. Still working with Microsoft support on this.

Support has concluded the VSD files we use are not supported in Visio Online. Renaming them to VSDX will solve the issue.

Great to see this working for you
