Team chart

Team charts are designed to show small segments of your organisational chart. If you have a content (or landing) page that is about or for a particular team/business unit within your organisation, then you can display a team chart representing that team/business unit within your page.

Team charts can be inserted into standard content pages using the Organisation Chart content container.

There are several ways you can generate your team chart, but all of them revolve around getting the user details of the team leader correct. To generate your team chart, you will need one of the following pieces of information:

  • the team leader’s username.

    • This is the easiest way to generate a team chart. You just have to know the username of the team’s leader (or be able to get it from the organisation chart or their staff profile). The disadvantage of this method, is that if the team leader leaves the organisation or moves to a different team, then the team chart will either break or show the team’s leaders new team. If it’s a page your monitoring or updating frequently, it may not be a big deal.

  • the team leader’s position title.

    • This method works where the team leader has a unique position title (e.g. Head of Finance or CEO). It means that if the team leader changes, the chart will update with whoever fills the position next (as long as your organisational and staff data is up-to-date). However, it’s not an effective method if the title is something like 'Project Manager' and there are fifty (50) project managers in your organisation. In this circumstance, the team chart will display the team for the first project manager only, rather than the one you want.

  • the team leader’s position ID.

    • This is an advanced method, and is likely to only be available to you organisation’s Squiz Workplace administrators, as they have access to organisational and staff data. This method is likely to be the most effective in coping with team leaders changing positions with the organisation, or leaving. Using this method will mean that if the team leader changes, the chart will update with whoever fills the position next (as long as your organisational and staff data is up-to-date).
