We’ve been hard at work the last few weeks preparing our Staff Directory Web Part for SharePoint 2016, and we’re excited to announce that it’s ready for you!
If you haven’t yet seen the product you can find out more about it here, or check out these screenshots to get a feel for what it does…
(Yay, no more waiting for pages to load)
When you need someone’s contact number you want it instantly. That’s why we’ve put a lot of effort into making the Staff Directory super, super fast (ask us how we did it :)
Configurable profile display
Display fields are fully configurable and as a SharePoint web part administrator you can choose from the more than 60 built-in fields that are available, or your own custom fields that you’ve mapped from Active Directory.
A choice of display modes
You can keep things simple with the intuitive “card” display mode, or choose a more traditional column-based display if you prefer how that looks. This view offers configurable columns, sorting, field formatting and image previews.
More than just a people directory
The Staff Directory lets you browse and search for offices, departments, locations, skills and job titles too. This is automatically pulled from the latest info in your SharePoint user profile system.
Find people who know about ___________?
We’ve also built contextual filtering directly into the profile interface to help you find people based on what they know. If you want to see who worked on a certain project or who has knowledge about a specific customer, simply click that topic to find out.
Find colleagues by location
Looking for colleagues in New York, Cape Town or Cottonshopeburnfoot?
Type a location into the search box and you’ll find them.
Oh, and let’s not forget the TONS of display options…
Your SharePoint intranet is unique, so we’ve given you lots of display options so you can make the web part your own. We’re improving this all the time, adding in new display options regularly as we build new feature requests into the product.
