Chart Settings: Point-in-Time Charts


Audience: Administrators Edition: Enterprise & Premium


The Point-in-Time panel allows an administrator to configure the "Point-in-Time" module. The "Point-in-Time" module is an option OrgChart Now module that archives organizational data over time. Email for more information on the "Point-in-Time" module.

Using Archived Data

An end user can generate an org chart from archived data using the Chart Builder. "Point-in-Time" charts are useful for regulatory, legal, and workforce analytics requirements. For example, a SOX compliance auditor has the legal right to request an organizational chart from a specific date.

Access to archived chart data is not available to end users unless authorized (see the Access Group topic for more information).
