Audience: Administrators

Overview

The Chart Management panel allows Administrators to create, rename, and delete Master Charts, as well as select Chart Documents to load into Viewer.

A Master Chart is directly linked to a data source, and is typically set to automatically synchronize with source data.

Chart Document is a customized OrgChart that is created in Workbench mode. Chart Documents should only be used in the following cases:

  • The desired org chart is not (or only partially) based on source HR data (e.g., Project Team that is not based on the hierarchy stored in the source system).

  • The presentation of the org chart is highly customized and cannot be easily driven using conditional formats. Reference the Rule-Driven Charting article for more information on driving chart presentation with conditional formatting.

Note

Master Charts should be used whenever possible, as they are easier to maintain over time.

While in Chart Settings, you can modify your data connector(s) and change your chart presentation styles for any of your Master Charts without having to return to the Account Settings: Chart Management panel.

If you have multiple Master Charts, you can switch between by clicking on the Master Chart dropdown menu, and then clicking on the Master Chart you want to update.
