I suggest you ....

Make the Delve organization chart available as a web part in regular sites.

The current "organization browser" web part :
The html view is just a list = not worth the time
You need silverlight to get a visual presentation but:
-nobody uses silverlight
-silverlight isn't compatible with modern browsers (because no one uses it)
The silverlight rendition in IE is appallingly ugly and isn't responsive.

To have a functional attractive org chart seems like a no brainer for a service that claims to be "enterprise" ready. It's already built in Deleve so just make it available as a web part.

        So when are we going to see some progress on this request? At the very least an update would be helpful.

        This web part is so important and so old with SharePoint, however, still requires a lot of re-work.

        If someone sets a zoom on the browser, for instance to 150%, the website is no more working appropriately. Stops responding, display is distorted.

        Because of Silverlight, doesn't work on iPads/iPhones.

        This is an important web part and should be updated keeping latest trends under the radar and should be updated on priority.

        Found this via a suggestion on Delve forum: Currently Delve is aware and displays on the Profile page who a user reports to and who is a peer. It would be great to also see a top-down view of this structure based on the department name as the pivot, instead of the user, and be able to walk up or down an org chart to see how various teams are connected in an organization.

        Would love to see this functionality implemented in SharePoint/Delve, or elsewhere in the O365 stack.

        If anyone is looking for an interim solution, we have used the TeamImprover Org Chart component in quite a number of client sites and have found it to be very configurable and produces a very professional result and works off AD. An alternative we came across more recently which is cheaper and may be worth considering is Plumsail. It looks similar to the TeamImrover org chart but we have not got around to testing its capability yet. Hope this helps.

        As silverlight is not supported on Edge browser can anyone suggest any organization chart webpart which will work on MS Edge.

        It would be good to have this available in more apps like Outlook, our in the Windows 10 people app and have integration with Outlook rather than Mail.

        I think it's not a hard think to implement. Do you already have it in Teams, Yammer, Delve. Just do it as a web part to define a point to start the chart and done!

        the ability to configure a specific starting point would be good to. That is, if the page is to display the organization of a certain manager/director, it would be good to be able to configure the web part to start with that person highlighted so people can browse below that person.

        The new REACT SharePoint Framework org chart also appears in the user profile hover box and the 'More info' left hand pane.

        This web part is already functional but it's just not available. Can it be made available?

        Would it also be possible to make a company wide version rather than just being focused on the current/selected user?

        This is a very common request. Unfortunately SPO OOB social collaboration, silverlight organization browser web part isn't much useful anymore.
