Hierarchy Chart

Last modified on March 21st, 2018.


The 'Hierarchy Chart' is a type of hierarchical organizational chart used in Innoslate as a means of visualizing up to five levels of decomposition of entities top-down.

The 'Hierarchy Chart' is not comprised of special diagram constructs. In fact, a 'Hierarchy Chart' can be generated by Innoslate on the fly based on the current contents of your project's database. The 'Hierarchy Chart' is built using entities in the database of any specific class and their decomposed by/decomposes relationships. The entities display as rounded blocks containing the number and name of the entity and their decomposed by/decomposes relationships create the hierarchical structure displayed as arrow lines.

Using Hierarchy Charts

Function Description
Creating Hierarchy Charts Using 'Diagrams View,' in Innoslate, you can create a new 'Hierarchy Chart.'
Viewing Hierarchy Charts You can 'View a Hierarchy Chart' of any new or existing entity of any class via the 'Open' drop-down menu, where available.
Adding an Entity An 'Entity' can be added to a 'Hierarchy Chart' via drag-and-drop.
Removing an Entity An entity can be easily removed from a 'Hierarchy Chart.'
