Back to User Interface Overview

Using the Publish to Web option you can create URLs that can be:

  • Bookmarked in your browser
  • Shared via email
  • Embedded in a public or private website

When you click on the Publish to Web button (in the SHARE ribbon), the URL Generator is displayed in a new browser tab. You can then use the URL Generator to create a URL that opens a specific chart.

There are three types of URLs available (Select the Link Type you want to create in the URL Generator Page).

  • Public - Chart can be accessed by anyone on the internet
  • Private - Chart can only be accessed by someone with a valid user id (within your OrgChart Now Account)
  • Restricted - Chart can only be accessed from a specific set of intranet sites (e.g. embedded in your SharePoint Site)

Creating Public URLs

To share a public chart:

  1. Create a read only account specifically for sharing public charts (if you don't already have one created). See the User Management topic for instruction on how to create a read only account.

  3. Specify the User ID (see step 1)

Note: Make sure that anyone that needs to access a Private URL has an active User Account in the system.

Creating Restricted URLs

To embed a chart in your intranet:

  1. If you have already done so, email moc.erawtfoskroweciffo|wontrahcgro#moc.erawtfoskroweciffo|wontrahcgro with the URL of your intranet site(s). We will add the URL to an access list that limits access to restricted URLs (so the URL will only resolve if launched from your intranet site). Restrictred Links will not function until this step is complete.
  2. Specify the file name of the Org Chart
  3. Specify the directory where the Org Chart is stored (See the File Manager for more details)
  4. Set presentation options for the chart:

  5. Click on the 'Generate URL' button to generate a URL. Copy the URL and embed in your intranet site by adding an 'org chart' link1 (It recommended that you open a new browser tab when the user clicks on a link in your intranet site).
