What's the best org chart builder?

I'm looking to make a hierarchy chart. It's actually not for an organization. What's the best software for this? Ideally, it would accept an excel format or something like that, and then handle drawing the visualization for me.

    Google sheet has a lot of amazing capabilities to plot your data for visualization. You will find tons of addons, apps and even template sheets built on top of which can be used for plotting whole range of data from an excel sheet.

    Super easy to use right out of the gate. Free tier would work for the the original poster's ask.

  7. I love Kumu for mapping systems, and organisations are no different. I find org charts are less compelling and certainly not as realistic as what you can do with a spatial map like Kumu.

    This is the bomb. Mind mapping apps are great for this purpose... MindNode is the most elegant way to create mindmaps on macOS and iOS

    Confession - I made it. You can draw diagrams quite quickly without worrying about layout. E.g. https://yuml.me/edit/b261d3de
