When you have a Position-based Nomination Method, it is possible to configure a Key/Critical Position indicator for your positions, so you can focus your Succession Planning on the critical positions. Once you have configured this indicator, you can configure the Succession Org Chart to display it on the Position Node and to Highlight Key Positions.

Note: This Key/Critical Position indicator is stored in the Position object, along with the Position Data, and it is different from the "keyPosition" field, which is configured in the Succession Data Model and related to the employee (considered as Employee Data).
