Visio Online Plan 2 includes the web version of Visio, an always up-to-date Visio desktop application, and 2GB of OneDrive storage making it Visio’s most powerful diagramming suite to date. Visio comes with a robust library of built-in and third-party templates and shapes, as well as integrated collaboration tools, so your team can work together—virtually anytime, anywhere. Store and share your diagrams and processes online and access them on the go, from nearly any device. Link your shapes and diagrams to data from popular internal and external sources to visualize real-time information.


Versatile templates and thousands of shapes
