Display and link vacant positions


#1

Hello,
i have 2 question regarding usage of org chart. We using Sharepoint list as data source ( exporting personal data from ERP system ).

  1. I have enabled and create vacancies list. List itself has 3 columns :
    • Title
    • Department
    • Manager

But in the org chart it display only Title in the box, department is missing. How to fix this ?

  1. Is there any way how to link existing employee and display them if their manager is vacant position ? So it will display vacant position and below all the people reporting to this position. Now we have build our org structure based on manager name.

thank you

Hello Marian,

Thank you for contacting us.

1 - Regarding the department question. Please, check the internal name of the Department field in the list of vacancies. Click List in the top tools ribbon, then List Settings. Then find and click the Department column. On the page with its properties in the browser address bar, find and copy the internal name of the column:

field-internal-name

After that, please, go to the Box Template settings of the Configuration Wizard, switch to HTML mode and add the field name to the template as shown in the screenshot below:


This should resolve the issue.

2 - Regarding your second question. Unfortunately, vacancies don’t support subordinates. We will consider this requirement and if we receive multiple similar requests, we will implement this functionality.

Additionally, our paid support team can implement such functionality for you. Please let us know if you are interested and we will prepare development specification and exact estimation.

As a workaround, you could create a new User Profile, fill it with information related only to a vacancy, edit manager/subordinates connections and adjust the styles for this particular user box (or you could edit the User Profile of the employee who left the company).
