Working with Organization Charts
3. Click the Add Shape button to reveal a menu of choices. Then select
one of the following options:
Add Shape Before: Inserts a new box at the same level as the
selected box, immediately to its left.
Add Shape After: Inserts a new box at the same level as the selected
box, immediately to its right.
Add Shape Above: Inserts a new box above the selected box.
Add Shape Below: Inserts a new box beneath the selected box.
Add Assistant: Inserts a new box beneath the selected box, but the
new box is connected with a special elbow connector to indicate
that the box is an Assistant, not a subordinate.
4. Click the new box and then type whatever text you want to appear in
the box.
5. If necessary, drag the box to adjust its location.
Deleting chart boxes
To delete a box from an organization chart, select the box and press Delete.
PowerPoint automatically adjusts the chart to compensate for the lost box.
When you delete a box from an organization chart, you should observe a
moment of somber silence — or throw a party. It all depends on whose name
was in the box, I suppose.
Changing the chart layout
PowerPoint lets you choose from four methods of arranging subordinates in
an organization chart branch:
Standard: Subordinate shapes are placed at the same level beneath the
superior shape.
Both Hanging: Subordinates are placed two per level beneath the
superior with the connecting line between them.
Left Hanging: Subordinates are stacked vertically beneath the superior,
to the left of the connecting line.
Right Hanging: Subordinates are stacked vertically beneath the superior,
to the right of the connecting line.
