PeopleFinder QuestField

Let QuestFields technology rev up your current static search field in record time. With the PeopleFinder QuestField, you can type in some of a first or last name, or some of each, then choose from results in a drop-down area that appears immediately, while you type. Or type in just enough for the autocomplete to finish with the correct name. Double-clicking a name from the drop down or hitting <Enter> for the autocompleted name takes you directly to the appropriate directory page.

Flexible Result List Layout

The PeopleFinder QuestField comes pre-configured for content channels that return people data. Depending on metadata returned by your server (name, address, job title, phone number, location, email address, etc.), the QuestField dropdown list can display information in various ways.

With no programming required, the PeopleFinder content channel can be configured to return various optional metadata columns.

Below are a few examples of how the standard PeopleFinder QuestField formats metadata in the results list:

  • SMITH, JOHN - Accounting (New York) +1 XXX XXX-XXXX
  • SMITH, JOHN (New York) +1 XXX XXX-XXXX
  • SMITH, JOHN (+1 XXX XXX-XXXX) Software sales
  • SMITH, JOHN - (XXX) XXX-XXXX Accounting

Mobile PeopleFinder

PeopleFinder QuestFields can be used from virtually any desktop browsers and can also be licensed for use on mobile devices. Mobile QuestFields enable your users to quickly and easily look up a colleague, department, student, or staff member while on the road.


A standard PeopleFinder QuestField offers very flexible layout options. However, like any QuestField, the PeopleFinder QuestField can be customized at very low cost to further suit your specific application needs. Customization options include multi-line result lists, various color and font options, and additional icons (such as an icon that integrates the QuestFields into a telephone API). In fact, thanks to its modular architecture and powerful client-side UI technologies, a QuestField can be enhanced with virtually any additional user interface option.

Email Address Handling

If the metadata includes an email address, it is displayed as an email icon appended to the right of the string. When the user clicks on this icon, the user's email application is opened allowing the user to quickly send an email.

If the result string is too long to display both the phone number and the email icon, the email icon automatically becomes transparent, revealing itself only when the user hovers the mouse over it. In this case, the person's phone number and email address are displayed at the bottom of the list.
