Changing the Box Color, Layout and Size

Changing the box layout, color and size is easy with TeamOrgChart.  The options are available in the Styling page which is accessible from the home page or from the drop down list on the chart page.

If you cannot see the styling option then you may not have the required permissions to change a charts appearance and you will need to contact your administrator to request that you are given permission to do so.

Accessing the Styling Page

Certain options apply to the entire chart and they can be changed in the top section of the styling page.

The options are:

  • Show Navigation Controls - this displays the up and down navigation arrows.  If unchecked then the end user is presented with a static chart.
  • Smart Draw - this uses the smart draw algorithm to layout the chart to best fit the available screenspace.  
  • Chart Depth - this sets the initial number of levels to be shown to the end user.
