    • Stop auto capitalisation of job titles

      Stop the app from capitalising any job title when you remove the department usingView options. Want job titles in same font for whole departmental tree so looks odd and is annoying.

          Hello,

          Thanks the idea.

          OrgChart is for TREE structure only. OrgChart is designed to avoid drawing by simply to set the properties. If the organization chart is not a tree structure, the app (the computer) has no way to know how to layout the department correctly – so for non tree structure, we have to draw it using drawing app.

          Best Regards,

          Philip

            • incorporate data information into diagrams of organization elements. With the data window separate it is difficult to associate it diagram

              The data elements correspond with organization elements in the diagram. I would like those data elements to display in the org chart itself

                  Hello,

                  Thanks the idea.

                  OrgChart is for TREE structure organization only.

                  (For the matrix structure organization, the computer has no way to know how to lay out the departments correctly, so the user has to manually lay out the departments – same as the drawing apps. OrgChart is designed for easy the creation of organization chart without drawing needs, it’s for tree structure only)

                  Best Regards,

                  Philip

                • Ability to move tiles

                  I work in EMS and have found this to be an awesome app for tracking information about the various fire and police departments as well as hospitals we work with. When I add a new organizational tile it goes to the end of the list. What about having the ability to move tiles around on the home page so that all the fire departments can be grouped together then all the hospitals, etc much like moving apps around on your iPone screen

                      Hello,

                      Thanks the idea.

                      The “searching” and “emailing” functionalities will be very useful IF we are using OrgChart to manage CONTACT like using a HR system. Now OrgChart is majorly focus on organization chart rendering (to help saving the efforts compare to drawing organization chart using drawing apps). There are big gap between organization chart and HR (or contact management).

                      We are also thinking if need to extend organization chart to be a contact management app – if so, these feature will be in.

                      Thanks much.

                        • Add import feature after excel export

                          1st idea: With ability to export to Excel, it would be great to be able to update the Excel file and then import the file to update. Simply state that the column headers must remain unchanged and coding should be able to recognize this very easily.

                          This would be extremely helpful as many people (like myself) have iphones and ipads but work in a world where windows has a larger market. My work machines are on windows and using Excel I can make changes much easier than on my iphone or ipad. Having this feature also provides a work-around solution…

                            Thank you for the idea.

                            Importing from Excel file can be easily implemented if the app does not care about the input. However to delivery a good solution for the users without technical background, it will not be that easy as inputting in excel file is out of the control of OrgChart app, as following issues will be frequent:

                            - Incorrect tree structure (parent and child relationship)
                            - Incorrect number input
                            - Columns may be different
                            - …

                            Even OrgChart does well to report all the input error to the users, many of the users will be in big trouble to adjust the input.

                            It may be better to extend OrgChart to windows – another business.

                          • any software for windows user?

                            Any apps for windows user?

                                    • Many ideas !

                                      Hi ! I loved this app. I found a lot of apps, softwares and sites that can make Organization Chart, but none was so perfect like OrgChart.

                                      Adds with contact list is genius !!!

                                      So, follow ideas:

                                      1. When we add a contact, only 1 phone is inserted. The most of contacts have more than 1 phone. This way, I have to insert manually the others phones in Custom Field...

                                      2. I am a Salesman, and I use this app to control and realize a "Account Planning" with my commercial team. I know that I am a specific user, and…

                                        Hello,

                                        Thanks the ideas, would you please help to check following my comments?

                                        1. Multiple phone be imported from contacts automatically.
                                        A:
                                        OrgChart is majorly designed for the purpose to help draw Organization Chart easily, right now this app is not the app to maintain contact information, and also not part of the CRM. Multiple phones importing is a better to have feature, which is not the target of a organization chart app

                                        2. Web publish with interaction support
                                        A:
                                        If just to share as a static web page, we can just to share it as a PDF page on the web.
                                        Your idea is not the simple feature, actually it’s a very complicated and may be very expensive service (compare the expectation, like XX$ per user per month).

                                        Right now, OrgChart is the best app for organization chart drawing, and it’s price is lower much than any other…

                                        1. Colours great but if you use them to represent a dept, company, etc would be great if you could put a legend on the chart so that when you print it or e-mail it the recipient can understand the coding.

                                        2. Any chance the chart could either auto-format or allow manual formatting so that larger org structures can use space below smaller org structures so that the overall width of the chart is reduced. This would allow it to be easier to read/understand when printed.

                                        3. Wrapping text; this is especially for job titles. I know can use large…

                                          Hello,

                                          Thanks the idea. Would you please help to check following my comments?

                                          1. “… put a legend on…”
                                          Can you please share more details about it? I guess but am not sure if you mean to add image to the chart blocks?

                                          2. Allow manual adjustment to reduce chart width
                                          A: It’s possible the app to automatically reduce the space (if there is enough space to use)
                                          - Manually adjusting chart position will cause many other problems, for example when changed other department, the manual work will not be valid, this will confuse the users much
                                          - For a large chart, to automatically reduce space, the calculating will be a big pressure for iOS device

                                          3. Wrap text
                                          A: Also it’s possible, the issue is that wrapping text will make the chart block be urgly sometimes, and the layout will be not that aligned.

                                          for your idea #2 and…

                                        • export opml

                                          Hi,

                                          Exporting to mindmap (opml) is very limited as it's only exporting the department name. Is there anyway to export more information, at less in the Mindmap Notes?

                                            Hello,

                                            Thanks the idea.

                                            The data in OPML file is very simple, just to contain ONE text field for one node. There is no way to include more information.

                                            OPML is a standard format for different app to exchange data. It’s possible to use other format to exchange data IF THE FORMAT IS STANDARD, but unfortunately there is no other standard for mindmap. (there are many other formats defined by the apps, not standard format. the format may be changed out of control)

                                            Best,

                                            Philip
