A quick introduction to organization charts

How to drag the first, topmost shape onto an org chart. This animation is a simplified view. In the practice session coming up, you'll see many more shapes than you see here.

In Visio, you create org charts by starting at the top and moving to the bottom. So the first shape you add usually represents an executive. However, the topmost shape could represent a manager or project leader if you're creating an org chart for a single department or team.

Click Play to see an animation of how to add the first shape.
