Chapter 6. Inserting Charts and Related ... > Structuring an Organization Chart

Structuring an Organization Chart

Chart boxes are related to each other. For example, if you want to add a Subordinate chart box, first select the chart box to which you want to attach it. The buttons on the toolbar show the relationship between the different chart boxes you can add. When you add a Subordinate, it is automatically placed below the selected chart box. You can, however, display the chart box levels in a different layout, and you can customize the organization chart's appearance using the formatting options.

Add a Chart Box

If necessary, click the org chart you want to modify.

Click the chart box to which you want to attach the new chart box.

Click the Insert Shape list arrow on the Organization Chart toolbar, and then click one or more of the following:

Coworker–to place the shape next to the selected shape and connect it to the same manager shape.

Subordinate–to place the new shape below the selected shape and to connect it to the selected shape.

Assistant–to place the new shape below the selected shape with an elbow connector.

Enter the information in the box you just added.

Click outside the box.
