Hello,

Does SharePoint have an out-of-box feature for org charts?  Is there a free web-part that can do this?  Would these org charts have employee head-shot images included them?

Thanks,

Paul

In active directory there is a manager field, if you populate this (and are using user profile service) you will get an organisation browser feature in users my sites.
You can either put the users photos in AD or have users upload their own via 'edit my profile' which will handle the photo side of things

Hi Paul,
as QPR already mentioned, SharePoint 2010 Server has the Organization browser web part (based on Silverlight).
Explanation of this and and other (paid) options:

Alternatives are using Visio and Visio Services to create your chart OR using SharePoint Client Object model and Googles visualization tools https://developers.google.com/chart/interactive/docs/gallery/orgchart
to create a dynamic org chart.

Hi Paul,

what would be your prefered way?
User information from Active Directory
OR
custom list where you maintain the user information?

Do you (already) have pictures/photos inside your AD?

Thanks,
Rainer

We use Active Directory for the profiles for users.

Correction:  We don't have images of staff in AD.

I am thinking about this web part: http://www.sharepointorgchart.com/
