You can display the value of a shape data field as part of the text inside the shape.
You can use this to update:
- A change in role on an organizational chart
- Show who a specific task is assigned to
- Show if a particular issue is "at risk"
For example, you can add the Name field's value to a shape combined with the text already there. Updating the value of the Name field for this shape will update the text in the shape.
Let's say you wanted to see the rep for Washington state displayed inside the shape.
Enter into text editing mode in the shape. Then under Options click on Insert Data in Text and choose Representative.
This adds the value of the selected field as a text inside the shape.
