Can SharePoint Search People by Department and include Sub-Departments?

  • My organization has Departments with Sub-Departments.

  • I have created terms in the term store:

For example:

  1. Training Department
    • Training Sub-Department A
    • Training Sub-Department B
    • Training Sub-Department C

I created a page using the term "Training Department". On that page I added a search result webpart. The query is for people with Department: {Term.IDWithChildren}.

This method works for documents, but not people. Anyone know why?
