  • Limit To:Limit To Screen Shot
    These check-boxes allow you to restrict your search (typed into the Search Box) to a contacts position Role or Title, their given or family Names, and their Telephone numbers.
  • Search by Role or Title:
    Searching for a contact with a particular Role within the university is simple. Just start typing any part of their role or title you know into the search box. You can continue to search for more than one word in their title to refine your search.

    To search by a contacts Given or Preferred names only, type a comma first and then start typing the name you are looking for. UC Directory will display a contacts Preferred name first, if it exists.
  • Search by Family Name:

  • Search for both Family and Given names:

  • Search for a Telephone (always enabled):
    Locate any contact by typing in the search box the full telephone number or the four-digit extension number. You cannot disable searching for a telephone number.
Advanced Searching
  • Advanced Search Mode:Advanced Search Screen Shot
    Advanced Search provides the same level of search control as 'Basic Search' and can be accessed by clicking on the 'Change to Advanced Search Mode' button on the tab-bar. Advanced Search includes all of the functionality of Basic Search, with the addition of the following enhancements.
  • Search In:Search In Screen Shot
    Allows you to locate contacts within a particular organisational unit. Select a Division from one of the Portfolios to show the members within it, refine this further by selecting a Division or alternatively type in your search terms to limit the results further.

    Please Note: UC Directory internally refers to the ORGPlus CLEVEL codes as follows:

    1. Organisation (this is UC)
    2. Portfolio (eg. Vice Chancellor or Chief Operating Officer)
    3. Division (equates to Academic Faculty or Business Unit)
    4. Department (equates to Academic Discipline or Program)

    These unofficial names are only common labels that apply to both the Academic and General sides of the organisation regardless of future changes to our naming scheme.
  • Limit To:Limit To Screen Shot
    As with 'Basic Search' this allows you to restrict your search results to those contacts that meet the conditions you select. With the addition of Location you can limit your search results to a building.
