Hello community, 

I am wondering if it is possible to add two layouts to a leaf. The scenario is as following: 
I want to create an organigram to show the hierarchical structures of a company. But at the same time, I want to display the employee's roles. It should look like this:

                                   J. Doe
            |                                                        |
      M. Schmitt                                A. Lee  --- Program Manager
                                                                     |             |--  SAP Expert
                                                                     |-- J. T. Kirk --- Project Manager
                                                                     |-- M. Spock --- Scientist

So, the main map is structured as an organigram, but for each leaf (like A. Lee), it should be possible to add to the right side his roles.

Do you have any idea how to realize this?

Thanks and best regards,

The easiest way to do this, is by using TAGS

You can also use these tags in search or filter actions

You can control the format of each topic using the Desgn ribbon - Object Format - Layout or by right clicking the topic.

If you are lucky once you have finalized the layout on one topic, you can right click the topic - Format Topic - Map Theme (at the bottom) and Save in Default Theme for this map. Your layout will then be applied to topics at that level. But my experience is this does not happen with origanigram and tree parent layouts.

You may greater control with Ary's suggestion.
