Displaying Staff Directories

A staff directory can be displayed in multiple ways and in multiple places on your website.  The colors, spacing and columns that are displayed are configured by Foxbright in order to coordinate with the rest of the site design. All of the data displayed in a staff directory is pulled from a Staff / User's account information.

Web Administrators are now able to have staff email addresses displayed inline with some staff directory types.

Staff Listing Settings:

  • Filter – Use the filter settings if you desire to display only a sub-set of the entire staff directory.  Simply select any combination of the District, Building, Department and Title that you would like to view.
  • Label Overrides – Allows for customization of column header / labels. For example, some clients only have phone extensions listed in the phone number column and want that column label to display as 'Extension' instead of the default 'Phone'. 
  • Group – Select how to group the data that will be displayed.  For example, a primary grouping by building will display the building address followed by a listing of all the people that work in that building.  Use a secondary group in order to achieve a group-within-a-group organization.
  • Sort – Select what field you would like to order the staff.  Selecting to sort by Name sorts the staff by their last name.  If a sort order of Building, Department or Title is selected, then the sort order will follow the order specified in the Sort Order Rank in Configuration.  See Staff Directory Configuration for how to change this sort order.
  • Listing Type – Toggles between the Row and Column listing types. Row listings are commonly used for sidebars or other narrow-width display areas. Column listings are often used for full page staff listings. Depending which type of listing is being used, different data fields are enabled for display.
