When you add a modern page to a site, you add and customize web parts, which are the building blocks of your page. This article describes the Organization chart web part.

Note: Some functionality is introduced gradually to organizations that have opted in to the Targeted Release program. This means that you may not yet see this feature or it may look different than what is described in the help articles.
