You may have decided to change or create a new outer circle, or "Anchor Circle," for your organization. 

Here below are the steps to follow to do this:

  • Here is an example of what an organization's starting point might look like:

  • Since there's no way to directly create a new anchor circle, what you will do instead is create a new GCC circle, move all existing roles and policies into that circle, and then rename the outermost circle.
  • To do this, first open a Governance Meeting in the outermost circle (here called the GCC).  From there, you will create a new circle, your new GCC. "General Company Circle" is a common name for the outermost circle, but of course you can name it anything you want (if you need instructions on how to create a circle, you can click here).

  • In the proposal for making the new circle, when you click the "Make this role a circle" option, a set of checkboxes will appear. You can use these to move all of your current policies and roles into your new circle. Go ahead and check all of these using "Select All" and accept the proposal.

  • Here are the results of the above steps:

  • You will notice that "New GCC" will need to be given a Lead Link and will need to elect a new Facilitator, Secretary, etc.

  • You will also notice that the outer circle needs a new name after this change. This is done outside of the Governance meeting, by the circle's Secretary or by a GlassFrog Admin. If someone in one of those roles goes to the circle page of the outermost circle, they will see a Gear Icon on the top right. Click on it and select "Edit Circle Settings".

  • Clicking this option will allow you to change the outermost circle's name and short name (which is the name that is displayed on the org chart).

  • Here's what the final results look like:
