    ​Hi there - anyone have an awesome tool in their tool kit that they use to create org charts with ease?  We have visio and PowerPoint, but looking to get even easier!

    Thank in advance for your reply!

    Doing it with Google Sheets is the easiest but it doesn't allow for sophisticated relationships (e.g. assistant or advisory positions):

    Draw.io is pretty straightforward and free if you don't need to do anything fancy. 
    Here's a quick start video

    Have you tried https://www.organimi.com/ ?

    Even though creating an org chart is one of those things that seems like it should be easy to do using any charting tool, what I've found is that having a specific tool for this purpose makes the work substantially easier.

    I know this is late. But we have been using TeamOrgChart (from TeamImprover - TeamImprover) for our org chart. It connects with our Azure Directory, which has made updating the org chart a lot easier whenever there are job changes. And it's more interactive than our previous chart was.

    Have you tried SmartArt in Excel? You can insert a variety of different shapes, one of which is a hierarchy.
