How can I display large amount of active organizations within the platform?



  • Currently when the user uses the platform is able to choose an active organization (within his organization) and which data he wants to include. The current solution indicates a narrow bar under the top navigation which informs the user regarding data included. The issue appears when the user has more than viewport width active sub-organizations / organizations. What would be the best solution to display it?

    Dropdown or maybe just pop-over on hover effect? Or maybe some other solution?

    If its pop-over - the user has to "hover" to preview all included data and this can be hard to remember.

    If it's dropdown - If the bar gets to 3-4 rows I think having such a large and visually "heavy" element would feel distracting.

    Any feedback/insights? dropdown example

    Visual options I see:

    1. Shorten it. E.g. "Company, HQ, IT..."
    2. Aggregate it. E.g. "13 companies"
    3. Abstract it to bigger organisations if possible. E.g. "Nestle (10/14)"

    You would probably want a way for the user to view the full list with an accordion or a tooltip/popover.

    But I also agree with Nicolas that a big bar that is always visible will probably be dismissed as not important by a lot of users.
