CREATE ORG CHART IN GOOGLE SHEETS

INTRODUCTION

CHARTS are the graphic representation of any data . Google Sheets provide us a number of visualization options in the form of different charts and graphs etc.

Excel gives us a variety of charts which are beautiful, colorful, more customizable and more powerful.

In this article we are going to discuss ORG OR ORGANISATIONAL CHARTS IN GOOGLE SHEETS.

ORG OR ORGANISATIONAL CHARTS ARE USED TO REPRESENT THE HIERARCHY OR RELATIONSHIP BETWEEN EMPLOYEES, COLLEAGUES, FAMILY  ETC.

In ORGANISATIONAL CHARTS the higher place represents HIGHER POSITION in HIERARCHY. For example, in a family, father would come at the top, followed by children and then grand children and so on.
