Such diagrams may have different purposes. You can use them as management tools that help to define the area of responsibility for each team member, as a personnel directory, etc.

Organizational charts display work responsibilities in an intuitive way which allows improving the work of communication lines and helps each member of the organization understand how their work fits into the overall scheme.

What’s New in the Next Updates?

The next 4 updates have significantly enlarged our JavaScript diagramming library. New types of js diagrams with a wide range of shapes and connectors were added:

Besides, our dev team has designed special live editors for JavaScript org charts and all other diagram types. These handy editors can be easily initialized, so that end users can edit different diagram types or build diagrams from scratch and view the changes made to diagrams on the fly. Edited org charts and diagrams can be exported to the JSON format right from the editor.

With the introduction of SVG and HTML templates, DHTMLX Diagram now allows both adding new custom shapes for creating such diagram types as network diagrams, life cycle diagrams, Venn diagrams, and whatnot, and customizing the existing ones. Moreover, it is also possible to combine flowchart and org chart shapes in one diagram. On top of all, DHTMLX Diagram has become much more customizable with brand new options for configuring each and every diagram element.
