There are a number of different types of search that you can perform in Profiles:
- Use the search control to perform a basic search based on a single search field. This control is available at the top of every page in Profiles.
- Search for a person by name or keyword using the Profiles by Name and Profiles by Keyword options available from the search control at the top of the Profiles page. .
- Use your company directory to perform a more targeted search based on multiple search fields. You can search the company directory from the Directory page or by selecting Directory Search from the search control at the top of the page.
- The tag clouds on the My Profile and Directory pages allow you to search the profile tags for your profile or the entire organization. Click a tag to display a list of people with that tag and show related tags to help you refine your search.
For all types of search, the wildcard character (*) is supported. For example, if you enterEthan *
as a search string for names, the results display all profiles for people with the first name Ethan
. If you enter 555*
as the search string for telephone numbers, the results display all numbers beginning with 555.
