The target operating model (T.O.M) is enhanced to reuse the existing Organizational charts which are created either through New Application Wizard or Organization landing page. The user must convert the organizational chart in order to use it as 'Operating Structure'. The Convert button is available on header of the Operating Structure landing page.

  1. Go to Application > New Application
  2. Go to Configure > Org & Security > Organization > Organizational Chart
