OC 3.0 SP1 Multiple incumbents data merged in Pos View and Details Panel


In OrgChart 3.0 SP1 we have some instances where there are multiple holders for a position (e.g. 2 people job sharing at 50% each). For all employees the requirement is to display additional data for Employee Group/Subgroup (text), Payscale (Basic Pay IT0008) as well as the standard position/org unit information. For multiple incumbents there are some negative impacts to the data display and any suggestions on how to resolve these issues would be very welcome.

1. Details Panel

If additional fields and data elements are added using the Admin Console, for multiple incumbents the data for each employee displays without distinguishing clearly which employee the data belongs to. So the first employee's name appears, followed by all data for all employees below.

Alternative approach was to try to display the data through the Employee Profile (as separate Profile tabs appear for each employee) by editing the XML files. However, the Profile seems to regenerate in such a way that the additional data for both employees appears in the first employee tab and the 2nd employee tab only contains the basic standard position-org unit information.

What is the best way to distinguish each set of data for an employee in the Details Panel?

2. Position Box View

In the Position Standard View the box shows "Multiple Incumbents" instead of the specific employee names (although these appear if you mouse over). To list the names separately within the box, in a previous post we had the suggestion to modify the template file. However, on closer investigation there appear to be approx 500 instances in 40 files for the relevant views that may need modification.

Is there a more targeted way to do this?

I would be very interested to know how others have configured / dealt with the data for multiple incumbents in their org charts and details panels.
