Using Search in People

 

The People view provides a powerful and visual way to search for and stay connected with people within your organization. With a unique patented people search technology, Jostle can find people even when you don't know how to spell their name. Auto-tagging makes hidden expertise and skills easy to discover! 

In the section below, we will walk you through how to best utilize Search in People.

Click on the magnifying glass icon in the upper right corner and then enter the search term, and as you type a drop down list of potential matching results across all views will appear instantly. If you press the enter key, the People results that match your search term will be shown in the main view.

You can use Search to find people based on:

  • Name (Ex. Michael)
  • Technical expertise (Ex. Software)
  • Geographic location (Ex. Vancouver)
  • Personal interest (Ex. Photography)
  • Job function (Ex. Sales)

 

You can also use the Filter Drawer to get even more out of your search results.

Click the filter icon next to the magnifying glass to open the Filter Drawer. You can use the Filter Drawer on its own or in conjunction with your search results. Either way, what you get is a way to drill-down your results by adding any number of filters based on Location, Org Unit and/or a Custom Filter of your own. To learn more about the all the features available across all views, refer to this article: Filter Drawer
