#2921 - Cannot see hierarchy of contacts, only companies

Closed General Question created by twanek 2 years ago

The product installed correctly in 7.7.2.1 (Build 23), at least as far as I can tell, but the hierarchy only shows for the companies involved, not for the contacts. I need a solution that displays the contacts in a hierarchy as well. Am I doing something wrong, or is there something perhaps missing in my data? What fields need to be filled in to display the contacts in a hierarchy? Or does the product not do that? Thanks.

    Hello,

    The module cannot show a hierarchy chart for contacts as it is not possible to define one in a standard Sugar. Accounts have a "parent" so you can create a hierarchy, contacts do not. The contacts that are displayed for accounts are shown because they are defined as the "main account" for those contacts.

    Kind regards,

      But there is a Direct Reports object that shows who works for someone that establishes a parent-child relationship between Contacts. Perhaps you could use that instead? For now, this dashlet doesn't work for me, as I am looking for a way to display an org chart for the people at our customer's companies.
