Create diagrams easily with Visio Online (Source: Microsoft)​

Allows others to add comments to a diagram or a shape from virtually any device, whether through Visio or through a browser using Visio Services (requires SharePoint or Office 365). Streamlines teamwork and reduces the risk of errors by allowing two or more people to work on the same diagram in a single file at the same time. Diagrams can be shared for broader consumption through a browser, even with people who don't have Visio installed - through Visio Services in Office 365.

By using Visio Online and Power BI together, you can illustrate and compare data as both diagrams and visualizations in one place to get the big picture and drive operational and business intelligence. This integration gives users the ability to combine business and operational insights in a single dashboard for unified data perspectives. Users without a license can add Visio Visuals to their Power BI dashboard and embed a Visio file link but not edit the visual.
