Insert SmartDesign dialog (hierarchy)

Table

Allows model contents to be entered quickly using the keyboard while the model graphic is created automatically.

The model type and your settings in the Show columns pop-up menu on the table header determine what columns are shown in the table.

The table colors help to distinguish between the object types.

First column

In models with hierarchical structure, such as organizational charts or process landscapes, the first column contains a tree.

More columns

If other columns are available, you can create objects there that have a relationship to the object in the first column (in the same row).

Each column represents an object type that has a certain relationship to the object in the first column. Therefore, e.g., the Role column in organizational charts represents objects of the Role type, which have the belongs to relationship to the organizational unit in the first column.
