The OrgChart component offers an intuitive way to visualize and interact with organizational structures.

OrgChart Overview

The OrgChart component is a visual representation tool used to display hierarchical structures and organizational relationships within an application. It provides a tree-like structure, where users can edit individual nodes, change their parent, or group them in the tree. This control helps you visualize hierarchical data in a sophisticated way and allows multiple nodes to expand and collapse, providing a comprehensive overview of the organizational structure units, such as employees, teams, or departments.
