The People tab at the top navigation allows to to browse or search all employees in your organization. You can filter people by Department, Location, Expertise, or any custom fields your App manager has set up to be filterable.
You can also search the name of any given user to find them. Note the Search box only returns results for user names. So you cannot search for an employee ID or alternate field, for example.
This tab is your Apps Launcher. This will expand to show you your org's most commonly used applications, so you can easily navigate to them directly from the intranet home page. for more on the Apps Launcher, click here.
