How to Create an Organizational Chart
Add a direct report under any selected level by hitting Add Below or press [CTRL] and the down arrow. You can easily add more reports under a specific manager by hitting the [ENTER] key as long as one report is already selected. You can continue building the chart, adding reports where necessary and SmartDraw will format the chart automatically for you.
Note that there is no need to draw lines. SmartDraw draws them for you as you add positions. The boxes are all perfectly sized, spaced and aligned. Your chart is presentation-quality from the beginning. Moving and inserting positions is automatic, too.
SmartDraw automatically applies professional design themes for you, but also gives you complete control to customize your org chart in any way you want.
Change the entire look of your chart by applying a new design theme with just one click.
Or change the look of individual shapes instantly by selecting a new Quick Style. Choose from more than 40 pre-set designs.
Add Your Organizational Chart to PowerPoint®, Word®, and Other Office Products
Share your org chart in a variety of common graphics formats such as a PDF or PNG. Export it to any Office® application in one click.
