I want to add Visio web part which is not available in my webpart option on my webpage. How to enable new webpart options in webpart section on a SharePoint 2013 page?


To be able to use the Visio webpart, Visio services must be deployed and configured.

Here is the information regarding this service from Technet: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee663485.aspx

And here is more about getting it up and running: http://technet.microsoft.com/en-us/library/ee524058.aspx

  • Have you activated the SharePoint Enterprise features on sitecollection and web levels? – Robert Lindgren Dec 15 '13 at 19:17

are you sure? it would be under business data within the webpart gallery, its called visio web access

You also need to have the Enterprise version of SharePoint to use Visio Services to use it.

  • Yes, I am quite sure but the Business Data option within the webpart gallery is not there. How to activate it there? – Priyanka Rajput Dec 12 '13 at 9:36
