 How to filter and sort articles

By default the Person Finder shows all users that are not deleted, ordered by the creation date. You can search, filter and order the users in various ways to find a specific person:


  • Search for a specific person using keywords from its title


  • To view a user of just one type, make a selection from the type dropdown e.g. "Users" or "Non-User Account"
  • To view deleted, select Deleted as the status
  • Select ‘1st initial’ to narrow the parameters 


  • For most recent user created, order by Date Created and Descending
  • For users listed alphabetically, order by attribute (first or last name) and Ascending
