People Directory Widget Properties Example Instance


Property Details
displayed title If a value is entered, then the title will appear on the header of the App.
SORT by Sort order for the listing.  Choices are “First Name” or “Last Name”
facets Determines the facets which will be displayed for filtering on the left side of the display.  These facets can be modified by developers to match the data content which exists for users.  For this OOTB example the facets are defined as follows:

[{ “facetName”:”department”,”facetDisplayName”:”Department”},{ “facetName”:”officelocation”,”facetDisplayName”:”Office Location”}]


There is an additional parameter that can be added to support cases where a facet for a user may be populated with multiple pipe (|) concatenated values (such as location facet having BOSTON|OFF12|MA). In this case, you might want to find if the officelocation value “contains” BOSTON. To do this, you would modify that facet as follows:

{ “facetName”:”officelocation”,”facetDisplayName”:”Office Location”,“facetCondition”:”contains”}

get photo from ad If true, the photo to display is pulled from AzureAD.

If false, the photo to display is pulled from another source.
