SharePoint 2010 Org Chart

There’s a bunch of new Silverlight controls within SharePoint 2010 – if you haven’t seen the new ORGANIZATIONAL CHART – you should check it out.

Clicking on the left, right or top will make it scroll.

Here’s one from the Contoso demo server :


Example #1 :


Example #2 :


Of course, you need Active Directory to be ‘clean’ – and need to implement the User Profile Import.

    Is there a way to add data into the Silverlight org chart? So far it only displays Name, Title and “About Me”. I tried checking the User Profile Properties and noticed that the checkbox if “Default Organization Profile Sub-type” is missing on some user properties. Maybe this is the cause?

      Hi Leiyah,

      Did you ever determine whether you could add additional attributes to the org chart? Thanks

    Is there any way to reflect an employee who reports to 2 different managers?

    There seems to be some situations where the org chart control gets into a state where it will only scroll up/down by a single line at a time rather than the continuous scroll that should normally occur. We’ve reproduced this irksome issue by scrolling to the far left and then trying to scroll up (results in only scrolling a single line at a time and requires the user to keep moving the mouse back up into the up scroll area to go one line up – no continuous/smooth scrolling until you scroll slightly to the right first). This same behavior can often be replicated when you scroll all the way to the right side of the control first and then attempt to scroll downward. We’ve noticed this behavior in IE, Chrome and Firefox, which makes sense seeing how it’s a Silverlight web part.

    We’d like to roll this out to our 30,000+ users as soon as this issue is resolved as we’ve already migrated our internal employee portal to SharePoint 2010. We’re on Version: 4.1.10111.0 of Silverlight.
