Q. I am putting together an org chart for my company. I listed 10 people below our CEO. The first three people I listed are horizontal. The next 4 people I listed happen to appear vertical. I'm trying to figure out how to change the display settings so that I can fit more boxes horizontally before the program shifts everything to vertical.
Here is a screenshot of my how my current org chart appears:
A. Yes, you can change the maximum stack height in the chart settings.
To change the maximum stack height:
1. Click the Stack Settings button in the toolbar at the right, then change the stack setting to 1.
Or, in the same way, change the stack settings using Chart Settings:
- Click Settings in the top right corner, then choose Chart Settings.
- Click Chart Display at the left.
Then change the Wrap Stacked Roles After to 1 to set the bottom level nodes to horizontal (eliminating stacking). Think of this as a maximum role (row) height setting.
[Note: Also, uncheck Compact Mode to stop vertical stacking if sibling roles exist.]
- Click Save.
Your chart now displays as below:
Here's a quick video:
