Is it possible to sort the members in organization chart by their service years?


I'm creating an organization chart linking the Lucidchart with my google drive.

It works quite well except for the problem of how the data shows in chart format.


I'm trying to make the organization chart, separated each person by their sections and direct report boss.

Even data I input in the google sheet comes in many kinds of hierarchy(positions, age, service years), however, it shows in the chart as alphabetical order only.

How could I change the group of employees (only supervisor and operational levels) into the service year order? Is there any way?

Hi there,

Thanks for posting in the Lucidchart Community! Unfortunately, there is not currently a function allowing you to automatically sort your employees by years of service. You can however, manually drag and drop shapes to create an Org Chart in this format! As this feature is not currently available, we'd love it if you'd add this idea to our Feature Request Form. This form is shared with our product development team for their consideration. If you have any additional questions, please let me know, and thanks for your feature request!
