Searching the People Directory

    Hi All,

    I have a question around searching the people directory. We often have a situation where we have a missed call on our phones and we can only see the extension which called. On our previous platform, we were able to open a phone list and search the 4 digit extension to find out who called. In Communifire, when we open the People Directory, we are only presented with a "Name" search field. Further to this, the People Directory only seems to load the first 12 or so profiles until you scroll down, causing it to load the next 12 or so, making it impossible to use the browser's search (CTRL-F) function.

    Is there a way we can search other fields in the People Directory? Would it be possible to add other search fields to the left side of the People Directory?

    Thanks in advance for your help.

    Hi John,

    Go to User Profiles (/admin/users/user-profiles)

    Edit the "People Directory" page

    People directory is the page represented by (/people)

    On going to "Edit" of People Directory page mentioned in the previous screenshot add a new FIlter for "Phone" field.

    Publish the page:

    Now visit the people directory page again (/people), you will see a new filter with "Phone" will appear:

    On typing phone number the results will be filtered out:

    The phone number can be confirmed via profile page of that user:


    The search results work on partial phone number text too. Let's say you typed "81" only:

    The search still works and will search all the users which are having phone number starting with 81. To verify the above results we can go to any one of those users to see the search results are valid:
