>>> Reference Section > Employee Related Web Parts

Underlying List: "User Information":


What is it: This is not a web part, but rather it is the SharePoint list that all employee-related web parts pull data from. By default, SharePoint allows for a contacts list, but much commonly required functionalities are missing. That's why we created a whole set of employee-related web parts that can access the contacts list. This list can be integrated with Microsoft Outlook as well as other applications that support .vcf contact files. If your company has many employees, we recommend linking it to Access to obtain a datasheet view which provides a quick and easy way to enter information. It currently cannot pull data from the Active Directory.
