Append Table


Audience: Administrators


OrgChart allows Administrator Users to override and/or supplement the data flowing in from their HRIS Connector using the Append Table feature.

Append Tables provide an easy and user-friendly solution for maintaining your org charts. Admin can add, suppress, and modify employee records, add additional fields, and upload excel files to manage any non-HRIS data directly in-app.

Setting Up an Append Table

The Append Table is available in the Append Data section of the Chart Settings: Source panel. The following section provides step-by-step instructions for setting up an Append Table.

  1. Log in to OrgChart.

  2. Click on the Mode Switcher icon in the Top Toolbar, and then select the Setup option. The Setup panel is displayed.

  3. Click on the Chart Settings tile. The Source panel is displayed.

  4. Click on the Plus_new.png icon (under the Append Data heading). The list of Append Data Sources is displayed.

  5. Click on the Append Table icon, and then click Select.

  6. Click on the Click here to create a table hyperlink. The Table Manager panel is displayed.

  9. The Append Table Editor is displayed. The following options are available on the left side of the panel:

  10. Click on an icon to begin. A panel associated with the chosen action is displayed.



    Note: If you click on Edit, Move, or Suppress, you will be prompted to search for the employee record you'd like to modify. Once selected, a panel associated with the chosen action is displayed.

  11. Enter the desired values in each field. Optionally, use the 5_2_1_AppendTable_Dropdown.png (to the right of each field) to select field values from your source data.


    Note: Ensure that the following required fields are properly populated, so that the record appears on the chart:

    • Reports To

    • PersonID

    • Name

  12. When you are finished click Add, Change, Move, or Suppress to register your modifications.


    Optionally, mouse over an Append Table entry, and then click on the 5_2_1_Penci_bluel_noFill.png icon to edit it, or the 5_2_1_Trash_nofill.png icon to delete it.

  13. Click Exit when you are finished.

  14. Select your Append Table from the Append Table dropdown (under the Append Table heading).

  15. Click Save and Refresh.

Adding a New Field

Administrators can use the Append Table to add new fields to their data set directly in OrgChart. The following section provides instructions for adding a new field to your data.

  1. Open the Append table to which you would like to add the new field, and then click on the 5_3_1_Append_Table_Field_Editor.png icon in the top right corner.

  2. Click on the green + Add Field button.

  3. Enter a name for the field in the highlighted textbox.

  4. Optionally, repeat steps 2 and 3 to add multiple fields.

  5. Click on Save. The new fields are available to edit in each existing append entry, and in any future append entries for this table.



    Change the field type, or modify other field properties in the Chart Settings: Fields & Formulas panel.


    If you are adding an Auxiliary Supervisor ID field (as seen above), you still must configure the mapping in the Chart Settings: Mapping panel. Reference the Auxiliary Reporting article for more information.
