The Lead Link role in the Anchor Circle behaves differently than roles in sub-circles.  
If you're looking into assigning the Lead Link to a sub-circle, please check this article.

For the outermost circle, the Lead Link role will only appear on the org chart and circle page when somebody is assigned to the role. 

In the screenshot below you can see that there is no Lead Link role in the outermost (or "GCC") Circle:



To change this:
  • Click on the frog's icon on the upper left corner to bring you to your outermost circle (named "GCC" in this example) overview page.
  • Click the Gear Icon to the top on the right and select "Edit Circle Settings" from the dropdown menu. 
    (If the gear icon is not visible, then you do not have permission to perform this type of action. In that case ask an administrator account holder in your organization for help).



  • In the dialog box that will open, type the first few characters of the person you want to assign to the Lead Link role, and use the autocomplete dropdown to make the selection and click "Save" to complete the task.


  • After you refresh the page the Lead Link role is now visible on the org chart. 


Note: To remove the role, just repeat the steps above and remove the Lead Link's name from the text box.
