  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.

    • 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.

      • 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.

        • Use LinkedIn to help me build my org chart

          Once I connect my LinkedIn account, Pingboard could include LinkedIn results in the auto-complete and when I select a person from LinkedIn, Pingboard can pre-fill their name, title and photo.

          • Admin only org chart

            I only want admins to be able to view the org chart. Primarily need a directory. It would be nice to be able to plan on the org chart but I don't want my employees to see those plans.

            • Click to dial a phone number from the org chart

              You can click to dial a phone number from a profile, but it would be great to also do this from the org chart view.

              • Multiple org charts for accounts

                Currently Pingboard offers the ability for each account to have only 1 org chart, which shows people reporting structures.

                As a user, I’d like to be able to see the functional structure of the company i.e. We have 6 functional organizations: Sales, Product Development, Legal, Talent, and Marketing. Within the Sales organization, there are three Departments: Inside Sales, Channel Sales Team, and Account Management departments

                As a user, I’d like to be able to click on an organization department to learn more about what they do via uploaded content or link to other content like videos or team sites.

                  • Export the org chart in .dot format

                    Allow exporting of the full org chart in .dot format.

                    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DOT_(graph_description_language)

                    Dot files are the standard way of representing a hierarchal graph such as this so that other tools can import it and work with it.

                        We’re eager to add support for departments within the org chart and have already started designing this feature! For instance, you’ll be able to see which part of the org chart is the Marketing Department and how many people are within it. For this use, each person can belong to a single department.

                        Keep adding your ideas for this feature – they’re very helpful. Thanks!

                      • Option to view the org chart starting with someone other than the CEO

                        When you are in a profile, you see the direct reporting structure. I'd like to be able to have the option to select where to start in the org. chart page. Not necessarily all the way at the CEO level. I'd like to search for a person in the chart and then decide what I want to look for.

                        • Organize Org Chart by Role instead of name

                          We would also find the organizational chart feature MUCH more useful (today we don't use it at all) if it was based on roles (with people assigned to the role) rather than based on people.

                          As an example. The COO and SVPs report to the CEO. However, our CEO is also an SVP. So, when I look at the organizational chart, people who report to him as the SVP show at the same level as those that report to him as the CEO.

                          If I could develop the org chart based on role, someone might show up more than once,…

                            Now that we have the org chart (which we LOVE - thank you!) We'd like to know when an employee requests a change to their manager - can we pull a report showing changes to that field so we can make sure that HR is updated if the department made a change?

                                Sometimes employees report to one person for many of the typical managerial activities (performance reviews, vacation approvals, etc), but also have a loose reporting relationship (aka dotted line) into someone else that might be the person that they are taking assignments from.

                                • Add horizontal scroll bar to org chart

                                  When an org chart is too wide for the screen, show a horizontal scroll bar. It can be dragged, but that functionality is only discoverable by experimentation, there's no visual indicator.
