What is Organization Chart in SharePoint Online?
The SharePoint organization chart is the diagram representation of the internal structure of the organization. The organizational chart is displaying the employee roles, position, and the relationship between all the employee within each other in the organization.
When the people are new to the organization by seeing the organizational chart they can easily able to know the internal things that are how the organization is designed, what are every one role and position and a total number of the levels.
NOTE: The “Organization Browser” web part is not supported in the “Google Chrome” browser. So open this page on the internet explorer.
How to use Organization Browser web part to create SharePoint Online Organization Chat
To create an Organization Chat in SharePoint online, first, we will create a web part page in SharePoint Online site and then we will add Organization browser web part to create the SharePoint Online organization chart.
Yo can follow below steps to create a web part page first, or you can read Working with web part page and wiki page in SharePoint 2016.
Open SharePoint Online site, “Site Pages” -> “FILES” -> “Web Part Page”.

Add Organization Browser Web Part in SharePoint Online
Now we will see how we can add organization browser web part in SharePoint Online web part page. Open the web part page which we created above then Click on “Add a Web Part“. Then click on the “Social Collaboration” from “Categories” template and then “Organization Browser” from “Parts” template.
After adding that “Organization Browser“, it will display the current logged in user name because the SharePoint does not know who reports to whom. So for that, we need to add the details in “SharePoint User Profile“.
To add the details in SharePoint User Profile, go to the SharePoint Admin center -> user profiles.
In the “user profiles” page, go to “Manage user Profiles” whcich comes under “People“.
In the “Manage User Profiles” page, find the name inside the “Find profiles” search box. Enter the name which you want to find and then click on “Find“. After that, the name will display in the “Account name” as shown in below.
To edit the profile, Click on the dropdown option which is present at the right side of the Account name. Then click on “Edit My Profile“.
Now the “Edit User Profile” page will open in SharePoint Online admin center. Here you have to enter the name of your manager in the “Manager” field. Also, specify the fields whatever you want as per your requirement. Click on “Save and close” button.
For assigned two more users under that particular Manager, we will go to the “Edit My Profile” page of the users and in the manager field, assign the same manager name. Here 3 users are there those are coming under one manager.
When we logged in with the user to the particular SharePoint Online site, who are inside the
When you will click on any user account name on the web part page, it will directly bring you to the specific User Profile page.
As here I have clicked on the manager user account name, so the below screenshot is displaying about that manager user profile details.
