At first glance, the People view looks like it is the digital equivalent of a physical photo wall, a place where you can see the Profile pictures of all the people within your organization.
But it's much more than just a photo wall. It's actually a very powerful employee directory. Click on anyone's image and a popover menu for that individual will appear with the following options:
View Roles (positions held within your organization)
View in Teams (re: team charts/org chart - if applicable)
Direct Message (one-on-one chat)
Badges can also be enabled by your System Administrator to appear on each Profile picture, providing at-a-glance, organization-wide information about all users, including which people are currently online, what external users are currently working with your organization, and anyone who has a custom designation. Learn more here.
Display your preferred layout of People via the rectangular/square icon toggle in the action bar, next to the filter icon (see image above). Photo view just shows everyone's image while card view (shown below) will display their names and Profile Summary as well (System Admins can learn about managing the Profile Summary content here). Click on the filter icon to set and save any additional layout and display preferences.
Search and Filters also make it easy to find and connect with specific people throughout your organization. You can learn more about using these robust features here.
There are no dedicated Administrator roles supported in People.
