Need to add custom rows to Visio Org chart boxes.
« on: August 06, 2017, 10:43:47 PM »
Hello All,

I just started using Visio about 4 days ago and am asked to complete a task for my company by end of this week (11th Aug, 2017).

Requirement is to create a map for the reports made by employees in the company. So I have created the Org chart, now I need multiple rows to be inserted into some org chart boxes (because say employee A, who is the "Report creator", might sent 3 reports to his boss, "Report Receiver", and so under employee A box, 3 rows containing data for each report should be there) where I can manually enter the report details and Link them to the "report receivers".

1) Is there any automatic way to do the same(I have tried linking excel sheet...several has not worked)
2)If it has to be done manually, how to insert the rows were I can enter the data ?

Kindly answer / guide me as much as you can & as soon as you can !

So, FOA:
You need to add rows of simple text below an existing shape? Then: just add a text field (ctrl+2)

If its more complicated than that, please elaborate your problem or (best option) add a visio file so people can help you easier (vsd, not vsdx, cause not everyone uses newer visio versions)

To just answer the questions:
1: yes, the easiest way in my opinion would be to use Excel and import the data via VBA or using the quickimport, but if that doesnt work,..
2:Just create Text fields or rectangles and write in them (connect them with connection points if you want them to stay locked onto each other)
