Generated properties

Generated properties are properties created by Orgvue regardless of the specific data in the dataset

They store key bits of information about each node, including changes since last save, duplicate status, and hierarchical information (e.g. depth, node type and outgoing count).

Generated properties are visible within the filter control and the properties tab in the right-hand-side panel; they are always displayed in italics

generated properties

Note: All generated property keys start with an _ (underscore) and have underscores between the words (e.g. node._span_of_control)

List of generated properties

There are a number of generated properties that Orgvue will create in a dataset

The following properties are always present however in non-hierarchical datasets some may contain no data

All datasets

  • _Change: Flags if node has changed since the last save (options: 'new' and 'updated')
  • _Descendants_Of: Shorthand d, returns all the nodes in a direct reporting line below the selected node
  • _Depth: Returns the level of the node in the hierarchy. Orphans and nodes with 0 descendants have node._depth == 1
  • _Has_Unique_Id: Boolean field testing whether the node has a unique ID
  • _Height:The number of organization layers below the node (Pre-Filter)
  • _Is_duplicate: Boolean field testing whether the node has a non-unique ID
  • _Is_ghost: Boolean field testing whether the node is a ghost
  • _is_leaf: Boolean field testing whether the node has reports
  • _is_orphan: Boolean field testing whether the node has a parent
  • _layers: (not visible in the filter control) The number of organization layers below the node. You can interpret this as the "height" of the node Post-Filter
  • _outgoing_count: Returns the number of children the node has (regardless of filters)
  • _records: Has the value '1' for all nodes (used in charts to avoid splitting bars)
  • _span (not visible in the filter control): Returns the number of children the node has, respecting filters and treating leaves as having a value of null rather than 0
  • sub_tree: a sub_tree is a slice of a hierarchy and includes a parent and their descendants down 3 levels

Hierarchical datasets only

  • _level_1 ... _level_n: [where n = allnodes()._depth.max] - Returns the ancestor of the node at the specified depth
