Sorting Options

The following sorting options are available:

    • Last Modified Date - This allows you to sort by the date on which the lists were most recently modified.
    • Title - This allows you to sort by list title.
  • Order Ascending/Descending - You can sort the lists in ascending or descending order. The order is based on the Sort By option you have selected. For example, if Title is selected, then the list is sorted in ascending or descending order by list title.

Lists

Each list displays in a separate row. The following information displays for the lists:

  • List Title - This displays the name of the list.
  • Shared Status - A Shared icon displays to the right of the list title. Click the icon to view the users with whom you shared the list. If the list was shared with you, then you can click the icon to view who shared the list.
  • Employee Thumbnails - Up to four thumbnails appear. If you have more than four employees in the list, then the number of additional employees displays to the right of the fourth image. Clicking a thumbnail opens the list details page.

  • Options - The following options are available in the drop-down:
    • Share - Click Share to share the list. This opens the Share List with Others pop-up. Select the users with whom to share the list. Enter a message that will display to the users with whom the list is shared. Note: You can only share lists that you own. You cannot share a list that was shared with you.
    • A link to the shared list will appear in the email. For portals with SSO enabled, recipients of the email (who have availability to SSO) can access the shared list directly from the email without being prompted to manually log in to the portal.

    • Delete - Click Delete to delete the list. If this is a list that you have shared, then the list is also deleted from the users with whom the list was shared.

View List Details

The details of the list can be viewed by clicking the list name. This opens the details page for the list. The list details shows the name of the list, the last updated date, and options for adding to a talent pool and sharing the list. You can also apply filters and access an employee's profile page.

Click Back to return to the My Lists page.

Updated Date

The date that the list was most recently updated displays to the right of the list title. If this is a shared list, it will show the date on which the list was shared and the user that shared the list.

Sorting/Succession Options

The following sorting options are available:

  • Sort By - You can sort the list by last name or first name. If tenure is enabled by the administrator in View People Preferences, then you can also sort by tenure. The list is sorted by last name by default.
  • Order Ascending/Descending - You can sort the lists in ascending or descending order. The order is based on the Sort By option you have selected. For example, if Title is selected, then the list is sorted in ascending or descending order by list title.
  • Color by - For portals with Succession, you can identify employees by a succession metric. The metrics that display are the default metrics defined by the administrator in View People Preferences. When a metric is selected, the results are colorized to identify each employee by their rating for the metric. If an employee is not rated, then they display with gray diagonal stripes in the color bar. Note: As with existing functionality, the colors for succession metrics are defined in Custom Field Administration when configuring the Succession custom field.

Add to Talent Pool

This option allows you to add the employees in the list to a talent pool. You must have permission to manage talent pools in order to add employees to a talent pool.

Note: Before adding employees to the talent pool, you can remove any employees that you do not want to include on the list by clicking the Remove icon in the upper-right corner of their employee card.

To add to a talent pool:

  1. Click Add to Talent Pool. This opens the Add to Talent Pool pop-up.
  2. Select an existing talent pool from the Select Talent Pool drop-down, if there is at least one talent pool created.
  3. Or, click Create New Talent Pool to create a new talent pool. Enter a title for your talent pool in the title text box, up to 100 characters.
  4. Click Save to add the employees to the talent pool.

Share List

This option allows you to share the list with other users. You must have permission to view View People in order to share lists.

To share a list:

  1. Click share list. This opens the Share List with Others pop-up. If the list has been shared before, then the users with whom the list has been shared displays at the top of the pop-up, and you can click View All to view all the users with whom the list has been shared.
  2. Select the users to add by entering key words into the predictive search field and selecting the users. Or, search for and select users from the Select A User pop-up. Users must be added to the recipient list one at a time. Note: The users that are available to select are the users that are within your permission constraints.
  3. Check the Notify All box to send the email to all users with whom you are currently sharing the list and have previously shared the list. If you do not check the box, then the email is only sent to the users with whom you have just selected to share the list. Note: This option only displays if a list has already been shared.
  4. Enter a message in the Share List Message field. This is optional.
  5. Click Share to share the list. An email is sent to the users in the shared list. If you included a message, then the message displays in the email. The subject of the email is hard-coded as "I Shared [Name of List] on View People." A link to the shared list is automatically included in the email. Recipients cannot modify the list. Recipients can view the employee profile page of the employees in the list, as well as any succession metrics and the team hierarchy.

Lists can be shared multiple times. Follow the steps above to share the list again.

Once a list is shared, a Shared with icon displays on the My Lists page. Hover over the link to view the users with whom the list has been shared.

Remove Shared Users

You can remove users with whom you have shared the list by clicking the View All link in the pop-up. Then, click the X to the right of the user's name. This removes the shared user from list.

Delete Shared List
