Holaspirit offers a variety of chart types to help you display your company roles and circles in several different formats.
The Chart shows the organizational relationships as a diagram making it easier for users to understand how your organization is structured and relationships between roles.
Admins can enable or disable the Charts in Administration.
Enable or disable charts
To enable and configure the Chart settings:

After you enable and configure the Chart for your organization, users will be able to choose the appropriate chart in their sorting options.
The different type of Charts
There are 3 org chart types.
Most commonly used by organization that works with Holacracy, it's a great alternative to the traditional pyramid-shaped management hierarchy with a structure based on the idea of holarchy… It looks like a series of nested circles that are autonomous but also part of a system. Each circle (i.e. team) is made up of a set of roles, grouped together around a specific function — whether it be a specific project team, a department, a support function, or a business line. It depicts a hierarchy of teams, not people.
Network of teams
Another visual representation would be to show the main circle (i.e. General circle) in the center with hubs of teams surrounding it. All circles are described on the same level as a flat network of teams.
Note: If you want to enable this org chart, you need to set up the relationships between the roles. Check out this article for more info.
To set up relationships, roles must mentioned other roles in their overview (Purpose, Domaines, Accountabilities, Custom fields).
This org chart helps visualize internal relationships between roles when a role is mentioned in another role/circle. It shows the rapid communication and collaboration between the different entities and may be used to demonstrate company workflows.
