With Vitextra Employee Directory you can use SharePoint Search service as well as Azure AD as a data source for the app.
Searching users within User Profiles via Search Service makes it possible to use information from such special fields as Interests, Skills, Office Location, and others to search people not limited to just their name, email, or job title.
On the other hand, Azure AD as a data source for employee directory allows you to hide employees from the search results in case their accounts are disabled.
Employee Directory App can be placed right in Teams Channel to boost productivity by eliminating context switching.
Using Employee Directory in Microsoft Teams allows users to search for people with their mobile devices.
Anyone in your organization with Employee Directory App can see (in nearly real-time) other users' presence status. Employee Directory uses Microsoft Graph to get this information regardless of the data source you use (User Profiles or Azure AD).
Choose the size of the persona card and fields presented. You can select up to four user properties to show up on the persona card as well as the size of the card.
There are two types of layout you can switch between of:
You can set a background color for each section on the SharePoint Modern Page. Employee Directory supports this functionality and automatically changes the theme of the web part according to the selected theme variant.
