Hello, I am curious if there is a way to use the "Filter Field" or another mechanism to Filter OUT individuals or accounts so that they do not show up in our People Directory? These are mostly service accounts which are active and used - but don't offer any real value to the people directory.
Yes there is! Under Manage People, click on the gear Icon of the account you would like to hide, then select Preferences.
Here there is an option called Share My Profile. Uncheck this option, and the profile will no longer appear in areas like the People Directory.
I hope this helps,Foster
Thank you Foster. I have changed the settings to look like this. I will give it a shot. Appreciate your quick response.
Yes that looks correct. Let me know how that works out for you.
From what I can tell.. It doesn't look like this has removed the user from the People Directory or filtered results of the People Directory. In my test - it does look like the account has been removed from the global site and space search results.
Would I need to do any kind of re-indexing for this to take effect?
Yes it is possible that a re-index could be needed. As the the old profile option is still probably being loaded when you navigate to browse people.
