View People Page - Filters

The filter options allow you to refine the list of results. The filter options that are available are configured by the administrator in View People Preferences.

Open/Close Filters Panel

To view the filters, click Filters in the actions bar. This opens the Filters panel.

To close the filters, click the X in the upper-right corner of the panel.

Home Button

The Home icon in the upper-left corner of the panel returns you to the root level of the filters. Clicking the icon does not reset the filters.

Organization

This filter allows you to filter by up to seven different parent organizational units (OU) and child OUs, as well as OU custom fields.

Performance

Note: This section only displays for portals with Performance or Succession. Performance filters are only visible to portals with Performance. Succession filters are only available for portals with Succession.

This filter allows you to filter by up to five different succession metrics. The metrics that are available are configured by the administrator in View People Preferences.

You can also filter by overall performance rating. The rating that displays is the rating for the user's most recently completed review.

The page updates automatically to display matching employees. Repeat these steps to set additional filters. The selected filters display at the bottom of the Filters panel.

Attributes

This filter allows you to filter by employee attributes and career preferences, as well as User custom fields. You can also filter by tenure, which is the total time elapsed since the user's hire date. You can filter by compa-ratio, which is a numeric value with two decimal points of accuracy and is used to indicate whether or not an employee is underpaid. You can filter by compensation by setting a minimum and maximum annual salary range.

The filter options that are available are configured by the administrator in View People Preferences.

Note: For portals with multiple currencies, Compensation will not be available as a filter for the April '16 release. The Compensation filter will only be available for portals that have a single currency.

Using Short Text Box Fields as Filters

Short text box field types can be used as search filters, when added by the administrator in View People Preferences. This field type may appear in the OU, Performance, and Attributes filter sections.

When this type of field is selected as a filter, options will be available for Starts With, Contains, or Exact so that you can enter a value that would have been entered by the user when completing the field.

For example, a user filled out a career preferences question titled "Where are you willing to relocate?" The user entered "Beijing" as his response. You can use the Starts With option and enter beij* so that you are more likely to return results for Beijing. You could also use the Exact option and enter the full city name. Or, you could use the Contains option and enter *jing.

The search allows you to carry out multiple searches by providing multiple search terms. For example, you would like to search for users with a Finance or Economics degree. You would enter the search term for Finance, and then add a second parameter for Economics.

The field accepts up to 50 characters.
