Introduction

This guide provides step by step instruction on how to use OrgChart Now to create and maintain org charts for your organization. In order to keep things simple, this guide focuses on a single use case: Automating your Org Charts and therefore, only details a subset of available functionality – please refer to application help for details on topics not covered in this guide.

Creating an org chart manually, especially if an org chart contains over 50 boxes, can be very time consuming. A better approach is to use a software tool, like OrgChart Now, to automatically create your org charts from a data file (for example, an Excel Spreadsheet) or via direct query to your HR System.

This guide assumes that you want to create your org charts by importing data; however, even if you plan to create your charts manually, we still recommend you review this guide as it contains information relevant to that use case as well.

Step 1: Data Preparation
OrgChart Now contains built in data connectors that allow you to query data directly from an HR System, flat file or database. In this guide, we’ll create an org chart from an Excel Spreadsheet (using a file located in your Samples folder); however, almost all of the same principles apply if you plan on using a data connector.

This section provides information on the format of an import file. Once you’ve completed this guide using the sample data, you can try again with your own data. You can either generate an Excel spreadsheet by hand or export a file (Excel or CSV) from your database or HR System. If you plan to use one of the built in data connectors, you can skip this section as OrgChart Now does all the work for you!

» Data Format

Required fields:

  • PersonID – Unique identifier for each person or position (typically an employee number or ID)
  • SupervisorID – Unique identifier for each person’s (or position’s) supervisor
  • Name – Employee name
  • Title – Employee title

Recommended fields:

  • IsAssistant – 0 or 1 (1 indicates the person is an assistant)
  • Department – A person’s department (e.g. Engineering or Marketing)
  • Photo – A reference or URL to an employee photo (e.g. a jpeg file) [See Appendix A for more details on employee photos]

You can include an unlimited number of additional fields to your data file (for example, location, email address or mobile phone).

PersonID SupervisorID Name Title isAssistant Department Photo
1 Steve Smith CEO 0 Executive Smith1.jpg
2 1 Sandra Chen Vice President 0 Marketing Chen2.jpg
3 1 George Lopez Vice President 0 Engineering Lopez3.jpg
4 1 Arnold Osborne Exec Assistant 1 Marketing Osborne4.jpg

In the example above, Sandra Chen and George Lopez report to Steve Smith and Arnold Osborne reports to Sandra Chen.

» To Download Sample Data (Optional)

If you would like to review the sample data, do the following;

  1. Login to your OrgChart Now account.
  2. Make sure the FILE tab is selected
  3. Click on the ‘Upload’ button (See 'Figure 1' below)
  4. Select the ‘Samples’ folder (on the left).
  5. Select an Excel file (for example, ‘Sample Data’ or ‘Sample Data – Photos’).
  6. Click on the Download button (located in the top ribbon).
  7. Open the downloaded file in Excel.


Step 2: Using the Import Wizard
The Import Wizard allows you to automatically create an org chart from external data. For the purposes of this guide, we’re going to work with a sample Excel file; however, you can upload your own data file (See Appendix B).

» Importing an Excel File

  1. Login to OrgChart Now.
  2. Make sure the FILE tab is selected
  3. Click on the ‘Import Wizard’ button.
  4. Select the ‘Excel’ option. The Import Wizard Panel is displayed. (See 'Figure 1' below)
  5. Click on the ‘Import Data’ data button.
  6. Select the ‘Samples’ folder (on the left).
  7. Select the file ‘Sample Data Set – 250 recs’ (or ‘Sample Data – Photos’).
  8. Click on the green ‘Select’ button to load the selected file. (See 'Figure 2' below)
  9. The ‘Filter Data’ step is shown. Click on the ‘Next’ button. Note: If needed, you can select the ‘Specify data filter’ checkbox. This option allows you to chart only a subset of your source data (for example, a branch under a specific manager or a specific department).
  10. The ‘Define Fields’ step is shown. Click on the ‘Next’ button. Note: If you didn’t use the same naming conventions as specified in the ‘Data Preparation’ step, you can map your fields to the required fields. For example, you can specify which field is to be used as the ‘PersonID’ field.
  11. The ‘Subchart Breaks’ step is shown. Click on the ‘Next’ button. For now, we’ll use the default settings – subcharts are discussed in more detail later in this document.
  12. The ‘Select Chart Template’ step is shown. Select ‘Classic’ and then click on the ‘Next’ button. Chart Templates are discussed in more detail later in this document. Note: Select the template ‘Photo-Left’ if using the ‘Sample Data – Photos’ file.
  13. The ‘Master Page’ step is shown. Select the ‘Blank master page’ option and then click on the ‘Create Chart’ button.

Congratulation! You’ve created an org chart using the Import Wizard.



Step 3: Using Chart Templates
Once you’ve imported your data, you can now try applying different chart templates. Chart templates contain data driven rules that determine how each box in a chart is presented. You can either use a system templates or you can create your own custom templates.

» Applying Chart Templates

  1. Make sure you are logged into OrgChart Now and have a chart open (If you’ve just completed Step 2, you should have a chart open on your screen.).
  2. Select the ‘Templates’ tab (in the lower right hand corner of the screen). The Templates Panel is shown. (See 'Figure 3' below)
  3. Note: If you can’t find the ‘Templates’ tab, select the ‘Show Panels’ button (in the upper right hand corner). (See 'Figure 5' below)
  4. Make sure the ‘System Templates’ option is selected in the Templates Panel. (See 'Figure 4' below)
  5. In the Templates Panel, double-click on ‘Classic-Mgr’ – notice that all manager boxes now have a double border.
  6. Double-click on ‘Headcount’ – notice that all manager boxes now have a double border and also include a ‘headcount’ calculation.
  7. Try double-clicking on other templates until you find the one you like (don’t bother with the photo templates unless there is a photo reference included in your source data – See Additional Info A for more information on including Photos in your org charts).

Note: If you can’t find a template that meets your requirements, don’t worry. Custom Templates are covered later in this document.



Step 4: Setting up Subcharts
Only so many chart boxes can fit on a single page. Typically charts are broken into multiple connected subcharts. OrgChart Now makes it easy to navigate subcharts. OrgChart Now also makes it easy to add and remove subchart breaks.

After creating a chart, you’ll want to page through the chart to see if you are satisfied with how your chart is broken up into subcharts. If you aren’t satisfied, you can easily add or remove subchart breaks.

» Navigating Subcharts

  1. To drill down, click on arrows shown below chart boxes. (See 'Figure 6' below)
  2. To drill up, click on arrows shown above chart boxes. (See 'Figure 7' below)
  3. You can also navigate charts using the Subcharts Panel. Select the ‘Subcharts’ tab (in the lower right hand corner of the screen). (See 'Figure 8' below)
  4. Single click on any entry in the Subchart Panel to navigate to the corresponding subchart. (See 'Figure 9' below)

» Searching Charts

Especially for larger charts, it may be difficult to find a specific employee records. The built in search functionality allows you to easily search for a specific employee record.

  1. Select the ‘Search’ tab (in the lower right hand corner of the screen). The Search Panel is shown. (See 'Figure 10' below)
  2. Type any search string at the top of the Search Panel and then click on the Search button. (See 'Figure 11' below)
  3. A list of matching results is returned.
  4. Double-click on any search result to navigate to the subchart that contains the selected record.

» Inserting Subchart Breaks

You can use subchart breaks to break your charts into multiple pages. To insert a subchart break:

  1. Select the ‘Subcharts’ tab (in the lower right hand corner of the screen). The Subcharts Panel is shown.
  2. Select any subchart. For example, click on ‘Andi Chang’ if you imported the ‘Sample Data Set – 250 recs’ data file.
  3. In the chart, right click (or ctrl-click on a Mac) on any manager (e.g. someone who has subordinates). For example, ‘Pawan Mulukutla’ if you imported the ‘Sample Data Set – 250 recs’.
  4. Select ‘Insert Subchart Break’. Notice how a subchart break is placed under the box.

Note: If you’re not into right-clicks, click on Pawan’s box and then select the SUBCHARTS tab (at the top) and then click on the ‘Insert’ button.

» Removing Subchart Breaks

Sometimes you need to remove a subchart break to consolidate a group of employees or just because there are too few boxes on a page. To remove a subchart break:

  1. Select the ‘Subcharts’ tab (in the lower right hand corner of the screen). The Subcharts Panel is shown.
  2. Select any subchart. For example, click on ‘Andi Chang’ if you imported the ‘Sample Data Set – 250 recs’ data file.
  3. In the chart, right click (or ctrl-click on a Mac) on any box with a subchart break (arrow at the bottom of the box). For example, ‘Pawan Mulukutla’ (see previous section).
  4. Select ‘Remove Subchart Break’. Notice how the subchart break is removed and all subordinates are placed on the same page.

Note: If you’re not into right-clicks, click on Pawan’s box and then select the SUBCHARTS tab (at the top) and then click on the ‘Remove’ button.

» Renaming Subchart Breaks

By default subcharts are named used the ‘Name’ field. You can easily rename your subcharts using the Subchart Wizard.

  1. Select the SUBCHART tab. Click on the ‘Wizard’ button. The Subchart Wizard is shown. (See 'Figure 12' below)
  2. Select the ‘Rename all breaks’ radio button. (See 'Figure 13' below)
  3. Set the ‘Name using field:’ to the desired field (for example, ‘Department Name’) and then click OK.
  4. If the Subcharts Panel is not shown on the right, select the ‘Subcharts’ tab (in the lower right hand corner of the screen). Notice how all subcharts are renamed using the ‘Department Name’ field. (See 'Figure 3' below)


Step 5: Saving and Opening Charts

» Saving a Chart

Saving a chart in OrgChart Now is almost exactly the same as saving a file in a Microsoft Office application (like Excel or PowerPoint); however, the chart is saved in cloud storage so you can access the file from any computer.

  1. Select the FILE tab.
  2. Click on the ‘Save Chart’ button. (See 'Figure 1' below)
  3. If you’ve never saved the chart before, you’ll need to select a destination folder (e.g. “My Charts”). Note: If needed, you can use the ‘Add’ folder button (in top ribbon) to create a new folder – after creating a folder, click on the ‘Rename’ button to name the folder. (See 'Figure 15' below)
  4. Next, specify a filename (e.g. “MyCompany”) and then click on the Save button. (See 'Figure 16' below)

» Opening a Chart

Opening a chart in OrgChart Now is almost exactly the same as opening a file in Excel or PowerPoint.

  1. Select the FILE tab.
  2. Click on the ‘Open Chart’ button. The Open Chart window is shown. (See 'Figure 1' below)
  3. Select a source directory (e.g. “My Charts”)
  4. Select a chart file (e.g. “MyCompany”)
  5. Click on the Open button or double-click to open a chart the file. (See 'Figure 1' below)

» Closing a Chart

You can manually close a chart at any.

  1. Click on the ‘Close Chart’ button (on the top tool bar) (See 'Figure 1' below)
  2. If the chart contains unsaved changes you’ll be prompted to save changes.


Step 6: Using the Master Page

The Master Page contains elements that are included on every page of a chart. Typically, elements such as a corporate logo and page numbers are placed on the master page so that a chart is easy to understand when printed or published to PDF.

» Uploading a Logo

In order to add a logo to the master page, you’ll first need to upload a jpeg file containing your logo.

Note: There is already a sample logo called ‘City logo’ in the ‘Samples’ folder. So if don’t have a logo handy, you can come back to this step later.

  1. Create a jpeg image for your logo and save it on your local computer. The logo should be on a white background. Also the file shouldn’t be too big (makes published PDF files too big) or too small (looks bad when printed). A good rule of thumb is that the logo (if possible) should be wider than it is tall. Some recommended sizes:
    1. 100 to 200 pixels wide by 60 pixels high (Small)
    2. 300 to 400 pixels wide by 120 pixels high (Medium)
    3. 400 to 600 pixels wide by 180 pixels high (Large)
  2. Upload your logo to OrgChart Now (See Additional Info B for details). A good place to save the logo is in the ‘Masters’ folder.

» Configuring the Master Page

  1. Click on the EDIT MASTER tab.
  2. Select the ‘Add Image’ button. (See 'Figure 17' below)
  3. Select the jpeg file you uploaded in the previous section. If you don’t have a file handy, select a file called ‘City logo’ from the ‘Samples’ folder. The jpeg image will be placed in the upper left hand corner of your document.
  4. Next, resize the logo so that it is not too big. Make sure the ‘Arrow’ tool is selected and then select the image. Resize the image using the little box in the lower right hand corner of the image. Alternately, you can double-click on the image to scale to a percentage. (See 'Figure 18' below)
  5. Make sure the logo is selected and then use the Pin tool to pin the logo to the upper left corner of the page. This ensures the logo will stay in the upper left no matter how the page is resized. (See 'Figure 19' below)
  6. Note: If the logo crosses the header line (blue dashed line) at the top, you can either make it smaller or change the header height. To change the header height, select the ‘Properties’ button (in the EDIT MASTER Tab). Look for the Header & Footer section in the Page Properties window. (See 'Figure 20' below)
  7. Click on the ‘Autotext’ button. Select ‘Page X of Y’. Click anywhere on the chart page. This will add a ‘Page X of Y’ autotext element to your master page. (See 'Figure 21' below)
  8. Make sure the ‘Page X of Y’ autotext element is selected and then use the Pin tool to pin it to the lower right corner of the page. (See 'Figure 22' below)


Step 7: Publishing to PDF

At any time, you can publish your chart to a number of different output formats. The most commonly used format is a PDF file. See application help for more information on other supported formats (e.g. PNG, JPG, SVG and EPS).

Note: You can also embed live chart in your web site or intranet portal. Contact moc.erawtfoskroweciffo|wontrahcgro#moc.erawtfoskroweciffo|wontrahcgro for more details.

» Publishing to PDF

Make sure a chart is open (See Step 5 section titled - ‘Opening a Chart’ for more details on opening charts).

  1. Select the ‘SHARE’ tab
  2. Click on the Publish button. The ‘OrgChart Now Publisher’ window is displayed. (See 'Figure 23' below)
  3. Click and the PDF button and select the ‘Entire Chart’ option. A PDF file is generated. You can now view or print the PDF file using Adobe Reader (or your browser). (See 'Figure 24' below)
  4. Click on the ‘Exit’ button to exit the Publisher.

Note: If you want to publish a branch or page from your chart, first navigate to the desired subchart (See Step 4 in this document for more details on navigating subcharts) and then click on the Publish Document button. Select the PDF button and then select the ‘Current Branch’ or ‘Current Page’ option.



Step 8: Creating Custom Chart Templates

Based on your specific requirements, you may want to display more than just Name and Title in your chart boxes. You may also want to highlight specific boxes (for example, contract positions, part-time positions or vacant positions).

The magic behind Chart Templates is that they are data driven. When you refresh your chart (See Step 9) all formatting is updated automatically and therefore, the time required to maintain your charts drops dramatically.

» Using the Box Layout Editor

The first step in creating a Custom Chart Template is learning to use the Box Layout Editor. The Box Layout Editor allows you to define exactly how a box is formatted. In the example below, we’ll add the ‘Department Name’ Field to a box in your chart.

Make sure a chart is open (See Step 5 section titled - ‘Opening a Chart’ for more details on opening charts).

  1. Select the ‘EDIT CHART’ tab.
  2. Select any box in your chart and then click on the Layout button. The Box Layout Editor is shown. (See 'Figure 25' below)
  3. Select on ‘Title’ Field. (See 'Figure 26' below)
  4. Click on the ‘Insert Row Below’ tool. A blank row is added below the ‘Title’ field. (See 'Figure 27' below)
  5. Drag and drop the ‘Department Name’ field from the Field Picker (on the left) into the empty cell below ‘Title.’ (See 'Figure 28' below)
  6. The result should look like this: (See 'Figure 29' below)
  7. Select the ‘Department Name’ cell and then select the ‘Expand Row’ option. This tells the Box Layout Editor that that the ‘Department Name’ cell should use any remaining vertical space in the box (sometimes a box has more vertical space available than required by field contained in the box). (See 'Figure 30' below)
  8. Select the ‘Department Name’ cell (if it isn’t already selected) and then select the ‘Bottom Align’ option. (See 'Figure 31' below)
  9. Select ‘OK’ (in the top ribbon). The selected box is now updated to show ‘Department Name’ at the bottom.
  10. Note: In the box layout editor, you can choose how to apply a box layout. (See 'Figure 32' below)

» Adding a Box Style

The next step in creating a Custom Chart Template is learning how to create Box Styles. Box Styles allow you to save a specific box layout and then apply it to selected boxes or use it as part of a Custom Template. In the example below, we’ll create a Box Style from the box layout that you created in the previous step.

  1. Select the ‘Box Styles’ tab (in the lower right hand corner of the screen). The Box Styles Panel is shown. (See 'Figure 33' below)
  2. Make sure the ‘User Styles’ radio button is selected. (See 'Figure 34' below)
  3. Select the box (where you just added the Department Name) and then click on the ‘Add Box Style’ button. A box style is added. (See 'Figure 35' below)
  4. Click on the ‘Rename Box Style’ button and enter ‘Name+Title+Department’ and then click OK. (See 'Figure 36' below)
  5. Click on the ‘Save Styles’ button. This will save the added box style so that you can use it on any chart. (See 'Figure 37' below)
  6. Note: If you need to make changes to a box style, do the following:
  7. Select the ‘Box Styles’ tab (in the lower right hand corner of the screen).
  8. Select any box in your chart and then use the Box Layout Editor (or Box tools in the top ribbon) to modify.
  9. Make sure the box style you want to update is selected (in the Box Styles tab). Also make sure the box (in the chart) that you just edited is selected.
  10. Click on the ‘Replace Box Style’ button. (See 'Figure 38' below)
  11. Click on the ‘Save Styles’ button when done.

» Applying a Box Style

You can manually apply a box style to one or more boxes in your chart.

  1. Select the ‘Box Styles’ tab (in the lower right hand corner of the screen) if the Box Styles Panel is not shown. (See 'Figure 39' below)
  2. Select either the ‘System Styles’ or ‘User Styles’ radio button. The ‘System Styles’ set contains a library of built in box styles. The ‘User Styles’ set contains any box styles that you’ve defined. (See 'Figure 40' below)
  3. Select one or more boxes in your chart.
  4. Double click on any box style to apply to the selected boxes.

» Editing a Box Style

You can edit a current box style that has been created previously

  1. Select the ‘Box Styles’ tab (in the lower right hand corner of the screen) if the Box Styles Panel is not shown. (See 'Figure 39' below)
  2. Select the ‘User Styles’ radio button. (See 'Figure 40' below)
  3. Right click the relevant box style to edit
  4. Select 'Edit'
  5. The Box Layout Editor will open and the changes can now be effected.
  6. Click 'OK' to close the Box Layout Editor once the changes has been affected
  7. Click on the ‘Save Styles’ button when done.

» Creating a Custom Chart Template

Now that you are familiar with box layouts and box styles, we can put it all together to create a Custom Template.

  1. Select the ‘Templates’ tab (in the lower right hand corner of the screen). The Templates Panel is shown. (See 'Figure 41' below)
  2. Select the ‘User Templates’ radio button. (See 'Figure 42' below)
  3. Select the ‘Add Chart Template’ button. The ‘Template Editor’ is shown. (See 'Figure 43' below)
  4. Select the ‘Rename’ button and then type ‘MyCompany’ and click OK. (See 'Figure 44' below)
  5. Now select the checkbox to the left of ‘Default’ rule and then click on the ‘Edit’ button. (See 'Figure 45' below)
  6. For the default rule, we’ll apply the Box Style we created earlier. Select the User Styles radio button and the ‘Name+Title+Department’ box style. Click OK when done. (See 'Figure 46' below)
  7. Now let’s add a couple of additional rules to our template. Click on the ‘Add’ button to add a ‘Rule’ (See 'Figure 47' below)
  8. If you want managers to have a double border, specify the rule as follows:
    1. Set ‘Field’ to ‘Span of Control’ (Span of control is the number of people who report to a given manager. If Span of Control > 0 then a person has at least one direct report).
    2. Set ‘Comparison’ to ‘greater than’
    3. Set ‘Value’ to 0
    4. Select the ‘Box Properties’ radio button
    5. Select the checkbox next to the ‘Border Properties’ icon
    6. Select ‘1 Pt’ thickness and ‘Double border’ options
    7. Click ‘OK’ when done (See 'Figure 48' below)
  9. If you want all vacant positions to be highlighted, specify the rule as follow:
    1. Set ‘Field’ to ‘Name’
    2. Set ‘Comparison’ to ‘contains’
    3. Set ‘Value’ to ‘Vacant’
    4. Select the ‘Box Properties’ radio button
    5. Select the checkbox next to the ‘Box Fill Color’ icon
    6. Select the color Yellow
    7. Click ‘OK’ when done (See 'Figure 49' below)
  10. Click on the ‘Apply Chart Template’ button when done. The template is applied to the chart. Notice how all the rules where applied to the chart (you may need to navigate to different subcharts to see vacant positions). (See 'Figure 50' below)
  11. Click on the ‘Save Chart Templates’ button to make sure your template is saved.
  12. Note: To edit a chart template. Select the template in the Templates Panel and then click on the ‘Edit Chart Template’ button. (See 'Figure 51' below)


Step 9: Data Refresh (Automating your charts)

Now let’s put everything together so that we can automate your charts.

» Setting up Data Refresh

Make sure a chart is open (See Step 5 section titled - ‘Opening a Chart’ for more details on opening charts).

  1. Click on the REFRESH tab and the select the ‘Refresh Properties’ button. (See 'Figure 52' below)
  2. Select the ‘Chart Template’ option. The ‘Select Chart Template’ panel is shown.
  3. Select ‘User Templates’ radio button and then select the template you created earlier (‘MyCompany’). Click Ok when done. (See 'Figure 53' below)
  4. Save the file after making the changes above.

» Performing a Data Refresh

Perform the following steps to automatically update your chart. This is typically all you have to do once your charts are setup!

  1. If your chart data is sourced from an Excel spreadsheet or CSV file, update the file (on your computer) to reflect any changes with your organization. Make sure to use the same file name as was used when importing (See Step 2). Upload the data file to OrgChart Now (See Appendix B). Make sure to upload to the same directory.
  2. Select the REFRESH tab and the select the ‘Refresh Data’ button. The ‘Data Refresh’ Panel is shown. (See 'Figure 54' below)
  3. If you’ve manually reordered boxes, changed branch styles or inserted/removed subchart breaks, you’ll want to select the ‘Smart Refresh’ option (manual changes will be preserved).
  4. Click on the ‘Refresh’ button. Your chart will automatically be updated from your data source.
  5. Save your chart.


Step 10: Optimizing your Charts

For ascetic or business reasons, sometimes you will want to change branch styles or reorder boxes under a manager. Changes to branch styles and ordering are preserved across data refreshes if you use the ‘Smart Refresh’ option (See previous section – Performing a Data Refresh).

Note: If your chart is too big to fit on a single page, you can use the Pan tool to scroll around the chart. After selecting the pan tool (right-click on the chart background is the fastest way to select), click and drag to scroll the chart. Select the Arrow tool to exit the panning mode. (See 'Figure 62' below)

» To Reorder Boxes

  1. Make sure the EDIT CHART tab is selected.
  2. Select the ‘Move Box’ tool. (See 'Figure 55' below)
  3. Click on the box you want to move and drag it over a peer. As you move a box, you will see green arrows that indicate where the box will be placed when you release the mouse button. For example, to place a box to the left of Ariana, drag a box over Ariana’s box and then release the mouse button when you see a green arrow pointing left. (See 'Figure 56' below)
  4. Don’t forget to save your chart when done reordering boxes. Select the Arrow tool to exit the move box mode.

» Changing Branch Styles

  1. Select ‘EDIT CHART’ tab
  2. Select a box in the chart.
  3. Select the ‘Branch Styles’ button. (See 'Figure 57' below)
  4. Select the desired branch Style. For non-assistant styles (see last row), all peers of the selected box will be updated to reflect the new branch style. (See 'Figure 58' below)
  5. Don’t forget to save your chart when done reordering boxes.

» Some Reasons to Change Branch Styles

  1. To make someone an assistant. Select one of the assist styles (See instruction in previous section – Changing Branch Styles) (See 'Figure 59' below)
  2. Chart is too wide. Change from the Tree style to the four or six column style. Problem usually occurs at the second level (on a sub-chart). (See 'Figure 60' below)
  3. Chart is too tall. Change from the one column style to the two column style. Problem usually occurs at the third level (on a sub-chart). (See 'Figure 61' below)


Additional Info A: Employee Photos

If you import an Excel spreadsheet or CSV file, you can include references to employee photos (employee photos are automatically handled by Data Connectors).

  1. Employee photos can either be referenced via a UR or by referencing a file uploaded to OrgChart Now. Valid formats include:
Photo Notes
45677.jpg Photo jpeg must be located in ‘Photos’ folder.
MyPhotos:45667.jpg The folder ‘MyPhotos’ will be searched for the referenced photo.
http://youcompany.com/photos/45666.jpg The URL will be resolved to a photo.
  1. JPEG is the recommended format for photos.
  2. Photos should not be too big. Recommended sizes are 72X72 or 150X150. Other supported sizes are 100X80, 80X100, 200X160 and 160X200.
  3. The best naming convention for photos is to use the employeeid.jpg so that photos have unique names that can easily be tracked back to an employee record.
  4. Missing photos are automatically handled. You don’t have to have a photo for each employee record.

Note: For mass uploads (e.g. hundreds of employee photos). Please contact moc.erawtfoskroweciffo|wontrahcgro#moc.erawtfoskroweciffo|wontrahcgro and request an FTP drop box.



Additional Info B: Uploading Files to OrgChart Now

  1. Select the ‘FILE’ tab
  2. Click on the ‘Upload’ button (See 'Figure 1' below)
  3. Select a destination directory (on the left).
  4. Click on the ‘Upload’ button (at the top).
  5. You will be prompted to select a file from your computer. Select a file and click Open. The file will be uploaded to OrgChart Now.
  6. Repeat to upload additional files.
  7. Click Exit (at the top) when done uploading files.
