  1. Log in to OrgChart.

  2. Click on More > Chart Settings, and then click on the Fields & Formulas tab in the left side menu.

  3. Click on the f(x) Create button, and then select the Aggregated Field option.

    Once more than one field is present in the Columns or Rows sections, the 5_2_UpArrow.png and 5_2_DownArrow.png icons are illuminated.

    Select a field, and then click on the 5_2_UpArrow.png or 5_2_DownArrow.png icon in the corresponding section to move it up or down in the list.

Important

If an Aggregated Field breakdown result exceeds the maximum capacity of 25 Columns x 25 Rows, you will see a 5_2_ChartSettings_source_Warning1.png icon to the left of the Aggregated Field.

Click on the AggField_Icon.png icon to refine the Aggregated Field configuration in order to use it.

Note

Employees that do not have a value populated for one of the fields used to create the Aggregated Field will not be included in the calculation.

Auxiliary employees (employees who report to more than one supervisor) will only be counted once.

Note

If you need to edit the configuration of an Aggregated Field after its initial creation, ensure that you always Save, and then Refresh the chart to preserve your changes.
