Organisational chart

With the help of the organizational chart, contacts from individual companies can be displayed in a tree structure. Departments and the associated people can be displayed clearly. People/contacts can be moved within departments using the practical drag & drop function.

Organization charts can be found at Administration – Contacts – Organization chart fields create.

Here you can define exactly which fields should be displayed in your org chart. To do this, simply use the mouse to drag the fields from the left column "Attributes" to the right column "Displayed Fields".

Additionally you must also below Settings – Contacts – Contact Types define the fields to be displayed for those contact types that are to be displayed in the organization chart.

You will now see the list of all your previously created contact types. For those types that are to appear in the organization chart, you must now use the editing pen (blue button) to define the fields for the organization chart. How to create a new contact type step by step can be found under the menu item "Define contact types yourself"
