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.

Here are some of the features we were looking in Org Chart
1. Various data sources (either through AAD/SharePoint User Profiles or from SharePoint List)
2. Conditional formatting (hiding users based on condition)
3. Customization (should be able to display 2 or 3 or 4 levels to start with)
4. Start Org chart from defined level (e.g. Finance Department org chart should start from CFO, etc..)

This would be a great feature for hub pages and Intranets to utilize delve and the people web part to create dynamic org charts. Nobody wants to edit visio charts or put individual people into an org cart and Delve went so close to solving this but we need a full org chart web part that can you can select different departments as views or different sections or just section of people in a company
Would be great to be able to see whole company org chart, as well as select certain areas eg by department or by project, so we can present these on the sharepoint sites for each.

This is Microsoft, 2020, not 1992. Microsoft! This essential HR function of SharePoint is missing from "Modern Pages!" Shame on your developer team, now all hiding in their homes. Please put some of them to work on this feature and deliver this QUARTER. PLEASE!!!!!
Would like to have this available sooner, without the option to customize. If customization is being considered, we'd like to have them in this order of importance:
- Ability to hide an individual
- Ability to choose how many levels up/down
- Ability to add custom field
(example, 4 people may have the same title in AAD but each of them represent a different geographical region)
- Ability to reference an Excel file for creating unique charts
(example, a salesperson might want to keep a chart to display a customer's org, to keep track of different points of contact)

This seems such a BASIC function for sharepoint to have, it is hard to see why has not been provided already.
And why has this thread gone to sleep? Microsoft developers just not interested? Please tell us that you are working on this!

How close is this getting to "Working on it" as the need is great for this web part. It is the TOP voted and there's been no response in almost a year now.
+1 to everyone else. We need to show Org Chart on Sharepoint Intranet. The organization feature in teams etc works great. Can we link that in Sharepoint?

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?
Mark Harris commented
You guys just rolled this out in Teams but not a SharePoint webpart. Why?
Steven Kempson commented
@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.
Floridian SP commented
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
