140Re: People Search
- Apr 9, 2008The company I work for has about 50,000 people in our employee
directory which handles our employees access to their directory
services and public people soft information which includes a section
where employees can list their business attributes.
We have our search engine indexed the key fields of the employee
directory. If an employee enter 2 words, the search will check if
their are any matches (or near matches ) to persons first name (or
middle) name in first position and last name for the second position.
We also have a name thesaurus file of a few hundred names so if you
look for James smith you also can find Jim Smith and if you look for
Daryl you also will look for Darrel etc.
We display these result in an employee listing separate from the
standard search results which displays the employees full name,
personalized job title and email link and phone number. If you click
on the persons name it is linked to the employees full employee
public profile in the employee directory.
