The who's who module enables a listing of people in your organisation. You can either search for people in the who's who or use the built-in A-Z functionality to navigate.
The search feature can look at various aspects of the people data. At the highest level there is a keyword search, but the control can also be used to search departments and other pre-defined taxonomy categories.
You can choose to allow users of the content management system to update their own profiles, which will update the information held about them in the who's who.
Because the data source for the who's who module is the Contensis user database, you can choose to have the data populated by your active directory. Use all information from AD or choose to only synchronise names and let the users update other information themselves.
Many of our customers have either custom or proprietary human resources systems or, in the case of universities, student records systems.
Because Contensis has an open API, it is possible to write tools to synchronise data from any external system into Contensis.
As an example, the European University Institute have a tool which runs daily to synchronise data held within their Oracle database into the Contensis system to populate their who's who.
