Sorting boxes by Title and in more than 2 columns

by KarinaDziedzic » Fri Aug 11, 2017 2:54 pm


I would like to segregate boxes:
1) some org charts I would like to see in 4 columns (or 3) it depends of the team, is it possible?
2) I would like to segregate people by alphabet but by the Job Title (and not by Full Name as it is now). But still, Full Name should stay as an ID and first in the box. Can you help me with that?
Underlined is Job Title, so I would like to see in one place Service Analysts, and in other Customer Relationship Leads.
As it is

I figured out that to sort by Job Title I had to Add in Data source setting Job Title as a Display Text.
But maybe there's a better way to sort it.
Ideal would be to sort in columns by Job Title.
1st column - only Administrators
2nd column - only Banking Team
Is it possible?

Additional question: picture size. maybe there is somewhere information about it, but couldn't find.
What is the best size (proportion), to not to distort a picture?

Hello Karina,

Thank you for your questions.

1) Unfortunately, besides compact/regular layout, alternative columns grouping is not supported at this moment. Our paid support can implemnent the feature you are describing, let us know if you are interested.

2) Regarding the sorting - it's possible to sort employees by a custom field.

For example, for sorting by Job Title you need to add the following code to your Custom JavaScript tab:

Code: Select all
renderer.config.nodesSortOrder = "ASC";
renderer.config.nodesSortFieldName = "JobTitle";

You may check this thread to learn some more about it.

The sorting aligns employees in the way as shown on the screenshot below:

If you want to order the employees differently you may create a new custom column in your list and fill in field values in a way that the employees ordered, for example, counterclockwise. Note, that ordering by numeric values is not supporder, please use alphabetical values instead.

3) With respect to the pictures, I would recommend to use square images to unify the layout.
