I am trying to find a way to create managable orgcharts in our sharepoint environment using SP Lists.

Environment is SP2007
I do not have the ability to add anything on the server side :(

Is there anything out there that will help with org chartswithout adding a webpart to the server?

all these options I see call for using a orgchart webpart.  Is that something that is standard with MOSS 2007?  I cannot find it.

Hello,

Josh McCarty has written a very good article about creating an org chart in MOSS 2007 without any third party web parts. It does require a bit of leg work, though, and a good understanding of a few underlying technologies like CSS, JavaScript, XSL, etc.

Here is the article in his blog:  http://joshmccarty.com/2011/03/create-an-organization-chart-in-moss-2007-using-a-contacts-list/
It has also been published on www.notingbutsharepoint.com here https://www.nothingbutsharepoint.com/sites/eusp/Pages/Create-an-Organization-Chart-in-MOSS-2007-Using-a-Contacts-List.aspx, but the XSL does not render correctly.

In SharePoint 2010 Enterprise, you could use Visio Services to generate the org charts from the list data, but that is not an option for MOSS 2007.

cheers, teylyn
