People Directory web part settings for modern pages

The People Directory web part provides functionality to quickly lookup users and their contact information. The results are displayed within the web part.

All configuration is done in the web part settings.

To insert the People Directory web part on a modern page, perform the following steps:

1) With the page in edit mode, click the plus icon to see the list of web parts available.

2) Find the ‘People Directory’ web part either by navigation or by searching the list.

Once placed on a page, you can configure the ‘People Directory’ web part by clicking the pencil icon to the left of the web part.

In the settings panel to the right, you configure the web part settings.

Under Design, you configure the styling of the web part frame and title. Title lets you write a custom title for the web part.

In Chrometype, you define whether you want to hide or make visible the title and frame of the web part.

If the chrome type is visual, you can choose whether to display the web part title.

Image lets you upload an image as the background of the web part frame.

Webpart class lets you insert a specific webpart class name.
Webpart border “Shown” makes the webpart border appear on the page.

Webpart padding “Disabled” is default. To add webpart padding, click “Enabled”.

Under Properties, Template lets you select a template for the web part.

Choose the Normal template if your People Directory webpart is inserted on a Modern Page and “Service Menu” only if you configure it for use in the Wizdom Servicemenu.

Set the number of maximum search results users will see per page. 

Advanced provides you with more and advanced options for configuration. As the web part is based on SharePoint search, you can create a SharePoint result source and enter this ID.

This means that the source id determines the exact subset of users you want the web part to display.
