Microsoft Teams is your hub for teamwork in Microsoft 365 and is the simple way to create and share diagrams in your favorite browser. Until now, there was no easy way to collaborate on your Visio files inside Teams. Today that is changing! You can now view, edit, and collaborate on your Visio diagrams from inside Teams. Together, Visio and Teams can help you coordinate on diagrams more efficiently by keeping all Visio files and colleague feedback in one place.

All Team sites come with a dedicated file library for storing all your workgroup’s content. You can now upload Visio files to this library from your desktop or preferred cloud storage site, like This way, all your team’s assets are in one place for anyone with the right permissions to access as needed. And like with other stored files, you can link to Visio diagrams directly from team conversations.

Edit diagrams directly in Teams

 

Teams is more than just a file repository, though. Thanks to editing capabilities through Office Online, you can make changes to your Word, Excel, and PowerPoint files directly within Teams. We’ve extended these editing capabilities to Visio files, enabling you to make simple changes to your diagrams without leaving the Teams app. You also have the option to edit diagrams in Visio Online or in Visio itself for more robust editing features. Team members will see all your latest changes the moment they refresh the diagram.

Provide diagram feedback in

 

Team members can work together on diagrams through in-app conversations to provide feedback in real time. Conversations are specific to the diagram you’re working on and appear the moment you submit them. You can also link to other files and use @mentions to get the attention of individual team members. Plus, your diagram comments show up in the team’s overall Conversations tab, along with feedback from all other stored files, giving a single view of all conversations across assets. Responses to a comment in the Conversations tab also appear in the diagram’s dedicated conversations pane.
