Staff Belt Shape vs Position Belt Shape RRS feed

All replies

  • Hi Eyass,

    As far as I know, they are two kinds of Position Types.

    The Position Type for each shape can be any one of seven, either selected for an individual shape from its right mouse menu option Change Position Type, or for a number of selected shapes using the Org Chart / Shapes / Change Position Type button:

    • Executive
    • Manager
    • Position
    • Assistant
    • Consultant
    • Vacancy
    • Staff


    There is a separate master shape for each of these Position Type values, but in reality, they are all the same with a User.ShapeType value between 0 and 6. The Position Type applied by the wizard can be set by having a column called Master_Shape with one of the 7 values in it. This will automatically change the appearance of each shape to suit, and even the layout location, as in the case of Assistant which will layout differently to the others. A position belt is used to indicate a position under an executive. The User.ShapeType values are:

    0  [Executive]
    1  [Manager]
    2  [Position]
    3  [Consultant]
    4  [Vacancy]
    5  [Assistant]
    6  [Staff]

    Hope the information was helpful. Anything unclear, feel free to post back to let us know.

    Best Regards,

    Herb
