We are using SharePoint 2013 and have setup the user profile sync with AD.
Is there a way to create a phone book in SharePoint?
I have found an OOTB solution. I am following this article.
I have created an enterprise search site collection
Enabled the people search page layout so we can create a people search results page. This can be done by navigating to the Site Settings > Look and Feel | Page layouts and site templates page and selecting ‘(Welcome Page) Search People’ in the Page Layouts section.
The next step is to navigate to the pages library and select New Document > Page from the ribbon.
On the create page screen select the Search People page layout to create a page that contains the people search results web parts.
The standard search result web part does not show any results unless a query is specified. To get all people to show up by default we need to modify the query used by the People Search Core Results web part. This can be done by clicking the ‘Change Query’ button in the web part properties and adding a property filter that returns all people. To do this we can select the property ‘contentclass’ and enter the manual value ‘spspeople’.
The above step does not show up any users. Any idea what I am missing?
