Editing Visio diagrams directly in Microsoft Teams

Hello everyone,

Microsoft Teams is getting better every day and I am using Teams for everything, share documents, chats, meetings and so forth.

Using Microsoft Teams you can make changes to Excel, Word, PowerPoint and now Visio files. You can make simple changes without leaving the Teams app.

Of course, when you need to do big changes you have the option to use Visio Online or Visio Desktop Version.

Licensing –  Vision Online viewing is available to the following Office 365 subscriptions.

  • Office 365 Enterprise E1, Office 365 Enterprise E3, Office 365 Enterprise E5, Office 365 Enterprise K1

  • Office 365 ProPlus
  • Office 365 Business, Office 365 Business Essentials, Office 365 Business Premium
  • Office 365 Government E1, Office 365 Government E3, Office 365 Government E5, Office 365 Government K1
  • Office 365 Education, Office 365 A5
  • SharePoint Online Plan 1, SharePoint Online Plan 2
  • OneDrive for Business Plan 1, OneDrive for Business Plan 2

But editing is only available with a Visio Online Plan1 or Plan 2.

So, if you do not have the license, you will not be able to edit the file, as the image below, but you can open using Visio Desktop by clicking on Open in Visio.

If you have the license then you will be able to edit the file inside Teams.
