  • 2. Organization chart: Dual Executive Officers
    I am new to Visio. I want to set up an Organization Chart with two separate and co-equal executive officers. I want to have everyone else in the organization beneath both of them. Visio seems only to recognize one executive officer. I'm not able to find a way to have the 2 execs atop the chart, next to each other, and everyone else reporting to those two. Is there a way to do this?

Can I create sub-functions in a cross-functional flowchart?

Postby Q0VDRGl2ZXI » Wed, 04 Jan 2006 15:05:01 GMT

Trying to create a template for my organization to map processes to.  Goal is 
to map the organization to the 'function bars' in Visio's cross-function 
flowcharts.  However, I would like to create some 'sub-functions' for lower 
organizational elements (i.e. divisions under a department).  Is this

1.Creating a template for a cross-functional flowchart


I use Visio 2003.

I am trying to create a template for a cross-functional flowchart.
1) The title bar needs to be 0.5in in height, containing the logo, revision 
number, approver name, etc.
2) This is followed by a blank frame of height 0.25in.
3) Then come 5 bands. The user should be able to add or delete bands as 

I created a cross-functional flowchart with 5 bands (There is a title bar, a 
blank frame, and 5 bands). I then used the shapesheet to increase the height 
of the title bar. Then I added the logo and other details to the title bar 
and saved this as a template.

After creating the template, I face the following issues when opening a new 
Visio document:
1) When I delete a band, say, band 3, the bands 4 and 5 do not automatically 
move up. There is still a gap after band 2.
2) When I resize a band, the other bands do not automatically move to adjust 
the shapes. The bands overlap.
3) When I add a band (band 6), this is created at the top, that too, it 
overlaps the title bar. (When I add a new band, I am asked whether to include 
a title bar. The issue occurs whether or not I choose to include the title 
bar. Note: I already have the title bar and 5 bands, I just need to add band 

I am not sure what is wrong. Please assist me.
Thanks and regards,

3.More than 5 functional bands in cross functional flowchart - Visio

I'm trying to create a cross functional flowchart in Visio 2003 and it 
appears that you can only have up to 5 cross functional bands. I am 
diagramming a process that crosses 12 organizational functions. How can I 
create a flowchart with 12 functional bands? to add more than 5 function bands in a cross functional chart

the cross funtional flow chart only allow you to pick up to 5 functional 
bands and I need more, how do I make this happen?

5.Changing Width of a Cross-Function Flowchart - Nightmare !!

I have created a three-lane cross-function flowchart for a "before and after" 

"Before" is fine - three equally-spaced lanes.
"After" is a nightmare of fighting with unseen protection locks.

I wanted to make both scenarios the same width overall, but "After" has only 
two lanes, the right one being twice the width of the the left one. 
The sensible way to create it is to take "Before", delete one lane and 
double the width of one of the others by simpling stretching it.

I have ungrouped ALL the elements, selected every possible combination of 
shapesheet and rightclicked at least 20 times to unlock every shape and layer 
that exists. The process has taken over 3 hours so far.
Something is still resisting. I am getting an unhelpful error message, 
saying "Shape Protection and /or Layer Protection" is preventing the command 
being carried out.

I KNOW that !!  But WHICH ONE particuarly is causing the problem ??

Is there a single command somehwere which can unlock everything in one click ?

This is an incredible waste of time - why is it all so complicated ?

I am an experienced user of pre- and ealry post-Microsoft Visio, but I 
haven't touched it for some time and am horrified by the complexity now 
brought to the program..

Help !
