If the "Configuration" button is greyed out, you have not yet created a properties mapper node configuration. You need to create such a configuration before being able to use it. Family tree layout from spreadsheet describes the steps to create such a configuration (see "Additionally, you will also need an appropriate properties mapper configuration that assigns each node a style that is recognized by the family layout algorithm" in the linked answer).

The family tree layout algorithm cannot be applied automatically when importing Excel spreadsheets. Use "Hierarchical" for Excel import and once your spreadsheet has been imported run the family tree layout algorithm from yEd's "Layout" menu.
