Microsoft Visio - Reporting Structure Views

Individual manager shapes can be collapsed and shown as needed. Collapsing shapes is useful to reduce the clutter in the diagram.

To collapse the hierarchy under a shape, right-click a shape, go to the Subordinates menu and click Hide Subordinates.


The subordinate shapes then collapse under the manager shape. This is indicated by a tree icon under the manager shape.

If the shapes are synchronized, any changes made to them elsewhere will be automatically reflected in the main shape.

To reveal the subordinates again, right-click the manager shape, go to the Subordinates menu and click Show Subordinates.
