Re: How to Create Organization Chart in Power BI Desktop

HI @v-juanli-msft 

Thanks for your reply. The demo doesnt provide the details on preparing the source data. 

Would you be able to share the process a bit more in detail, this will be very helpful as I am trying to create the org chart for about 1400 employees and didn't find any compolete process any where. 

 

My data set has Emplyees and their employee IDs and the name of their managers. Just wondering how to go about setting up the source data. It will be very time consuming to create Parent and child IDs manually

 

Thanks, appreciate any inputs
