OrgChartJS Docs

Assistant

You can specify one or more Assistant nodes in one chart by setting their tag to "assistance"

Here is an example:

 
    var chart = new OrgChart(document.getElementById("tree"), {
        ...
        nodes: [
            ...
            { id: 8, pid: 2, tags: ["assistant"], name: "Rudy Griffiths"}
        ]
    }); 
    

If you want to change the template for assistant nodes you can specify template for "assistant" tags

 
    tags: {
        "assistant": {
            template: "mery"
        }
    } 
    

Assistant nodes works in all orientation options

With the assistantSeparation option you can change the assistant separation value. The default value is 100.
