Macro “Organization Chart”

Data that is maintained in the user profiles can be used to build organizational charts.

The organization charts are always calculated on the basis of a particular reference user (This is configured by the Confluence Administrator.). That means starting from a particular user, the hierarchical relationships with superiors, colleagues and employees are visualized. 

To display organization charts, you can use one of two macros: “Organization Chart (compact)” or “Organization Chart”. The charts are displayed for a certain reference user. The reference user is defined by their username.

User information in the Organization Charts

The following information (if available or maintained) will be shown for each user who is displayed in the organization chart:

  • Profile picture
  • Full name (including a link to the profile)
  • Labeling superior (via a yellow star on the profile picture)
    • A superior is marked with a yellow star on their profile picture. Therefore at least your peronal superior has a star. If someone else of your colleagues is a superior, this person will also be marked with a star (as you can see on the screenshot). Please be aware that this star only appears within the org chart, and not on the general profile pictures.
  • Position (field from the standard Confluence Profile)
  • Department (field from the standard Confluence Profile)
  • Highlighting the reference user (only "Organization Chart (compact)" macro)

Please note

  • The organizational charts are calculated based on the data you entered in your user profile (one field of your profile, e.g. named “superior” is defined as basis for the hierarchy. All information about superiors, colleagues and employees is automatically calculated based on that field).
  • It might take up to 45 minutes until changes to the superior are reflected in the organization chart hierarchy.

Macro “Organization Chart (compact)”

Displays the organization chart for a specified user. The chart is “centered” around this user. This means that all parameters are evaluated relative to this user.

This chart is displayed on a profile page of the user – if configured.

Peers of the specified user are sorted alphabetically. The user will always be displayed first among their peers.

Secondary Manager
