This snapshot box is designed to highlight a specific organization (social, corporate, private, etc.) that has a prominent presence within a territory. Provide a very brief overview of information in the paragraph parameter. Important: Please do not attempt to include a full-length article, as this template is not designed for it.

{{Snapshot org
| name = (required)
| anchor = (optional; see note below)
| type = (required; single phrase describing the type of organization, e.g. 'Religious order' or 'Restaurant chain')
| datetype1 = (if omitted, defaults to "founded")
| date1 = (at least one date is required)
| loc1 = location of first date if applicable
| datetype2 = (if omitted, defaults to "dissolved")
| date2 =
| loc2 = location of second date if applicable
| image = (use without "File:")
| paragraph = (short overview paragraph to provide historical context)

This template also includes an optional anchor parameter that can be used to create quick wiki links. For example, including | anchor = Name of org allows for a quick link on the article like this: [[Article#Name of org]]. As with all wikilinks, this can be piped to create direct links in the encyclopedia directly to this snapshot ([[Article#Name of org|whatever text you want]]).
