  • Brief description:
    • Have you ever needed a way to define and display an org chart on your Drupal website? There’s a module for that.
  • Brief history
    • How old: created in Apr 2016 by PatrickScheffer
    • Versions available: 7.x-1.3, 8.x-1.3, and 8.x-2.3 versions, the last two of which can be used with Drupal 8, 9, and 10
  • Maintainership
    • Maintenance fixes only
  • Number of open issues:
    • 2 issues, neither are bugs
  • Usage stats:
    • 377 sites
  • Module features and usage
    • The module works by extending core’s taxonomy hierarchy management
    • You can organize who reports to who with a simple drag-and-drop, the same as any taxonomy hierarchy. For anyone who hasn’t used those, it would be basically the same as managing a menu structure
    • Once created, an organigram can be viewed as a dedicated page, a block, and a token
    • The 2.x branch uses Flexbox to achieve a CSS-only presentation that removes the need for any Javascript
    • Appears to have been built to serve the needs of the Dutch House of Representatives
    • I haven’t tested it, but I suspect that for a site with a very large organigram they need to build, tools like Client Side Hierarchical Select, built to make managing large taxonomies easier, are likely to work with Organigrams too
