Lesson 21. Adding an Organizational Chart > Inserting an Organizational Chart

Inserting an Organizational Chart

PowerPoint comes with Microsoft Organization Chart, a program that can create organizational charts to show the management structure in a company, a family tree, or relationships among any objects. To create and place an organizational chart on a slide, perform the following steps:

  1. Display the slide on which you want to place the organizational chart.

  2. Select Insert, Picture, Organization Chart. The Microsoft Organization Chart window appears.

  3. If the Microsoft Organization Chart window is too small, click on the Maximize button in the upper-right corner of the window to make it full-screen size.

  4. Click on a box in the chart, and type the name, title, and up to two optional comments about the person in the organization. Press Enter to start a new line after typing each item. Press Esc when you complete the entry for that person.

  5. Repeat step 4 for each person you want to include in the organizational chart.

  6. To add another box to the chart, click on the appropriate button at the top of the screen (see Figure 21.1). Then click on the box to which you want to connect the new box. The new box appears. Figure 21.1 shows a chart with several boxes, including three subordinate boxes added to the default boxes.

    Figure 21.1. Type your entries into the basic structure to form a chart.

  7. To return to your slide and insert the organizational chart on it, select File, Exit and Return to filename or click the MS Organization Chart window's Close (X) button. If asked if you want to update the image, click on the Yes button. The organization chart appears on the slide.
