  1. Option to view the org chart upside down

    The entire org chart would be inverted, showing who is supporting who.
    The CEO would be at the bottom, supporting the people above.

    • Add basic calendar function - recurring status

      This seems pretty rudimentary, especially since Pingboard is a status tracker and often times statuses are recurring. Please, our team is begging for this.

      • Allow multiple branches to be included in the org chart export

        Currently, if there are multiple branches, each has to be downloaded separately. It would be helpful to merge all branches in to a singular downloadable chart.

        • Ability to sort people by start date (newest first)

          A bunch of new employees started while I was on maternity leave. I wish I could sort my Pingboard by start date so I easily get to know the new people

          • Anniversary report should show the number of years and/or highlight major anniversaries

            It would be nice if the anniversary report was able to display *which* anniversary is coming up for each individual. In particular, it would be great if major anniversaries were highlighted/called out in some way (e.g. 1, 5, 10, 15, 20, etc).

            • Allow rearranging columns in reports

              We uses Pingboard reports to sync with our Mailchimp contact lists and I have to rearrange the columns every time I download the report. I would like to have a saved custom report with the columns in my preferred order.

              • printing options

                We use Pingboard in order to not manage a PPT deck version of our org chart, but when asked to provide a slide or PDF version of our org chart (complete or departments) that is readable, I have to manually create one in PPT since there are no options for sizing the Pingboard chart for printing. Would love some flexibility on that.

                  • Create a notification section on site for changes (title, team, etc.) so people know when someone has a profile update.

                    Example: If my title changes from Program Manager to Program Director, my teammates are aware of that.

                    • Achievement Badges

                      Inside of Google's HR portal you van view everyone's basic information / org chart, additionally you could view achievement badges. These badges were created by Googlers, and distributed by Googlers (via various APIs). Additionally there were API's to query users and what badges they had, so there were various leaderboards.

                      These badges were pretty absurd (and fun!), if you came in via an acquisition you would have the "Original X company gangster", if you created a code change and your PR / CL number had any Yahtzee combination in it you could get a "2 of a kind", "3 of…

                        • Add Custom Field type that's updateable via Slack commands

                          For example, a “what I'm working on” field that could also be updated via Slack command and easily viewed. For example, input in Slack would look like: '/Pingboard What I'm Working On: etc. etc. etc'...

                                          It would be great if we could reorder the information that populates in the automated weekly email. For example, highlight the new hires first, then anniversaries, and finally OOO.
