Insert an Organization Chart

Insert an Organization Chart

You won’t find an option to add an Organization Chart in PowerPoint 2013’s Insert tab of the Ribbon. Instead, you will find the SmartArt option in the Insert tab, and organization charts are just one of the many variants of SmartArt graphics you can insert into your slide. An organization chart graphically represents the management or hierarchical structure of an organization. If you want to illustrate the reporting relationships in your company or organization, you can create a SmartArt graphic using the Organization Chart variant.

Adding New Shapes to Existing Organization Charts

Adding New Shapes to Existing Organization Charts

After inserting an Organization Chart (org chart) in PowerPoint 2013, you might need to add more shapes to your org chart. The default org chart that PowerPoint places has a few shapes. However, you might want to add more shapes, as well as newer hierarchy levels for the new shapes you add. Fortunately, you can make these additions and edits with just a click or two.

Change Layout of Organization Chart

Change Layout of Organization Chart

Once you have inserted an organization chart (org chart) within PowerPoint 2013, you might need to change the layout of the org chart. The "layout" means how the subordinate levels in the hierarchy branch out from top to bottom -- probably you want all subordinates flushed to the left, hanging to the right, or distributed evenly across a horizontal plane -- you will learn more about how this works in this tutorial.

Embed Fonts

Embed Fonts

Have you ever been in a situation where your presentation looked so awesome with some amazing typography, but when you opened the same presentation on another computer, the text looked positively terrible! This behavior may happen if the font you used is not available on the other computer. The best solution to this problem is to use safe fonts that are available on most computers, or you may also explore the option to embed fonts in your PowerPoint presentation.
