What attributes can be used to search for people?

ahead has a powerful search engine that allows users to easily search for people in their organization. People can be found through a set of attributes, using complete or partial queries (e.g. ‘Barce’ if you search for people in Barcelona). These attributes, which are synched with the company’s Active Directory, are:

  • First name
  • Last name
  • Display name
  • Job title
  • Department
  • City

The results will provide the following information of each person, as long as it’s available in the Active Directory:

  • User principal name
  • Display name
  • Job title
  • Department
  • City
  • Email address
  • Business phone number
  • Mobile phone number
  • Office
