Views Options

The Views Options provide a lot of choices to display your data. The individual chart elements and data excluded from your choice are hidden in this mode.

This area is located at the right-side panel. Usually, the company organizational charts contain massive information on different categories. However, a person at a specific position may not always want to see all the data. For example, if you are an HR, you can click HR Details to view the information about human resources only.
