New diagram types available in Visio in Microsoft O365

If you’ve been using Visio in Microsoft 365 since it was first introduced to your tenant, you’ll notice a couple new diagram types available from the Visio home page on; the first of these being organization charts. Org charts are a great way to show company structure, hierarchy levels, and reporting relationships. They can be a great way to organize a continuously evolving or complex organization into a simple structure. Microsoft recently introduced org charts in Visio for the web. Now, they are extending many of the same capabilities to Visio in Microsoft 365. To get started, go to the Visio home page at and select Organization Chart.
  • This will open a new blank canvas with five organization chart stencils in the Shapes pane—basic, medal, pinboard, badge, and rollout—with predefined, color-coded shapes that you can drag onto the canvas to represent executives, managers, assistants, consultants, other staff, and vacancies in your team, department, or organization.
  • Once you’ve added the new shapes to the canvas, you can add information including names and job titles, then use connectors to show the hierarchy.
There are also templates that you can use to help you get the general flow of the charts. These and many more exciting features that Microsoft is bringing to make work easier, convenient, and faster. Invest in the future and make work easy! Book a free consultation with us to know how to streamline your business with Microsoft O365.
