How do I add an assistant?

I am unable to add an assistant below the CEO but above other reports. Typically this is expressed as a box that is below the executive box, slightly to the right and above other reports.

Hi Patricia - Thanks for reaching out! Unfortunately, this configuration is not currently possible with our current org chart functionality. If adding the ability to do this would be useful for you, please let us know via our feature request form.

You can create new members within your org chart by simply typing the name in on the left hand side and then dragging the employee to the desired location. You can also manually add connections by dragging lines onto the canvas. Please see the gif below for an idea of how to accomplish your use case:

This process doesn't work. I tried several times, but I can not place the box on the canvas as desired. It either moves up to the CEO or goes down with all the other direct reports.

Interesting. My last post isn’t here. It’s been over 7 days.
