Question about the newest SharePoint Org Chart release


I received this email about a week ago regarding a new version of the PlumSail Org Chart that was recently released.

My companies’ SharePoint 2013 website is currently using the 2.x version. We would be interested in upgrading, but I would like clarification on how to upgrade… it looks on the outset like we need to install the new plugin, then delete the current one.

But will that disable and/or remove the current org charts that are currently in use? We have the plugin in use for a subsite that has org charts for about a dozen different departments. It’s not totally impossible to recreate them with a new plugin, but I’d rather that not be the case.

And… is this upgrade a necessity for a SharePoint 2013 site, or are we fine with continuing to use the 2.x version?

Thank you in advance for your assistance!


Hi Nathan,

The new version of Org Chart is only available for SharePoint Online in Office 365. If you use On-Premises version, it is not available for On-Prem.

The new version doesn’t disable the old one. You can use them simultaneously.
