Office Insiders on Windows,
Joyce Lin, a Program Manager on the Microsoft 365 People Experiences team, wrote this blog post to introduce you to the new Org Explorer app in Outlook for Windows.
As many organizations move into a more remote-friendly work model, being able to contextualize work relationships has become increasingly important. Org Explorer for Outlook helps you visualize and explore your company’s internal structure, work teams, and individual roles.
Many of us are also interacting with new colleagues for the first time through email or online chat. Org Explorer can quickly supply you with vital information about their title, group, manager, peers, and more, and aid you in developing strong working relationships.
Find out how it all works, right here

We've been unable to make it function - the image below is what everyone in our tenant experiences. We've had no luck with support since it is in preview (Outlook support says it is a problem with Exchange, but have no docs or contacts to help triage further), but are happy to debug with anyone who may know how to troubleshoot this issue.

Hi @Adrian Hyde, thank you so much for reporting this. We investigated the issue and deployed a fix over the weekend. Do you mind restarting Outlook and trying again to see if it's working now? Thanks again for trying out Org Explorer!

For us, we just started to see the numbers show up on the right side of each contact that shows the # of direct reports. But there is also another number shown that says "x total" - we have not been able to figure out what this number means....can you shed some light?

@Adrian Hyde Great question! "x total" is the number of total reports someone has, not just the people who report directly to them ("x of direct reports"). So if I had 2 people reporting to me, and each of them has 2 people reporting to them, I would have "4 total / 2 direct reports." Is there another way that we can phrase it so that it's clearer?
