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.
This request is still in our web part backlog, but we’d love some more information. As some replies to this request have pointed out, when hovering over a person in SharePoint, Teams, or Outlook, you do see an Org Chart displayed. When we’ve spoken with customers in the past, our feeling was that more customization was required to display this on a page. Help us understand your needs. If we gave you the option to display this auto generated Org Chart on a page, with no customization options is that enough? If not, what customizations do you need? E.g. I need to be able to hide some of the people in the team, even though they’re in AAD. I need to rearrange and put some people in different physical locations on the layout to show their relationships better. I need to change their title from what’s in AAD, add links, add a different picture, etc.? Please let us know what capabilities give you what you need. Thanks! Add your comments to this item and we’ll read through them as we spec out this work.

This post has no updates since May 15,2019. Please let us know if this is still backlog or made some progress. OOB Org Chart would be good to start with. Same Architecture available in People Search in Sharepoint, Teams and in Outlook.

Now with everyone working from home, this has become all the more essential as communication needs to happen not just across the office but from far-flung lands. Any update on this years-old request?

You guys just rolled this out in Teams but not a SharePoint webpart. Why?

@Site Product Team
Web Part for Modern Page = Add Org Browser
Web Part Settings = Filter by start person
For example if start person is Bill Gates it shows everyone under Bill Gates.
Full modern people card experience
May 02, 2017 Thanks for the suggestion; we’ve added it to our web parts backlog.
May 15, 2019 This request is still in our web part backlog
Maybe you need to get more staff.

To begin with, just a web part that shows the org chart from the top CEO would be perfect. After this we can think on customizations, but please let us use the org chart as a web part asap!
While you can get to the org chart by hovering over names and eventually getting to the Show Organization link, that's not user-friendly, especially for our low-tech workers.
I would like to see options for narrow and wide columns - if the web part is in a one-column section, align the chart horizontally; if it's a more narrow column, align it vertically.

Please put this into the Working On It status soon!
Also add an option to see the whole organization chart (HR just asked for this one). The ability to show the org chart from one point on wards (like plumsail)
Can someone from Microsoft please get back with status on the development? Thanks
Are there other products that can give us an org chart capability using Delve.
Same organizational chart required to be presented in a SPO webpart as the dynamic chart viewed in Teams
This is infuriating because we have to create and maintain the org chart when we know that the information is readily available within the MSFT suite. It's totally there in Delve (not pretty, but the info is there), why can't I publish the web part in Delve in Sharepoint?
We need this functionality as well. Simply we should be able to choose the person from where the organization chart should start from and be able to configure until which level it should shown. So for example, on a page, maybe we want to show the CEO and the VPs only. Maybe on another page we want to configure it that only teamleads are shown. The look & feel when you click 'show organization' in the people webpart is for us sufficient. A compact and descriptive view might be interesting as well! Thank you and hope you can make this available soon.

Let me type in a name and show me the org chart...so I don't have to leave my page (and click the waffle, then click Delve, then type the name)
Same view, Delfe part to simple, be able to build complex structures like organization, hr related views (reporting to) but also custom structures like technical teams,technical team leads, location structure, and so on
You could use the existing People web part for this, perhaps as a display option with similar customisations (such as the text box)? Alternatively an Org Chart web part might give more scope for customisation - say if I wanted to specify exactly who would appear or the design.
Basically, if I was able to use the web part and select Org Chart option, I'd then expect to be asked for the name of the person I'd want to be showing the org chart from.
An option at this point could be whether it should be top down, or bottom up. IE - select the CEO to see everyone under them, or select my manager to see everyone above them.
Once this option is displayed, I'd expect to have at least 2 options to determine the design of the org chart (tree-like or branching out from the left or right, etc).
Another useful option would be the ability to select or deselect who should appear. You might only want to show one directorate under a particular executive so with this you can edit and customise who appears through simple check-boxes for selection.
Finally, it would be good to allow the Org chart web part to be blank, almost like an org chart builder. This would be particularly useful for myself, where there are teams I'd like to show, but are not official in AD. This way I could literally start typing, then select the person's profile and then select whether I want to add someone above them or below. I would also want to be able to add in extra info in the same way as the people web part text box to denote their role in this unofficial team. Very very useful for internal employee networks.

We just want a link to a user and all users who report underneath to have a dynamic org chart for our company intranet
Well first of all it would be nice to have a generic url , so we can provide users the saam look and feel. step 2 would be an option to emmed like a webpart. There would be no customization needed. maybe some options presenting in a collapsed way or a more compact way.

Providing what MS Teams has to offer for org chart as a SharePoint web part would be optimal.
