Advanced Searches Now AvailableSept. 16, 2004
ITS-Internet Services is pleased to announce the release of new Advanced Search functionality in the Online Directory, www.baylor.edu/directory. These advanced functions are offered as a replacement for the current Whitepages online system. The Advanced Searches, available to logged-in faculty and staff only, are virtually identical to what has until now been offered only through the Whitepages online application. By including them in the new online directory, Baylor will have a single, integrated and improved tool to replace the older applications whose technology platform has become outdated and hard to maintain.
For a short period of time, both the old Whitepages system and the new Advanced Search features of the Online Directory will be available. We encourage all users to test out these new capabilities over the next month and report via the Helpdesk any problems or deficiencies they encounter.
The Advanced Searches are divided into two groups: faculty/staff, and students, with each group containing four search options. Please note that, as with the standard search, information returned in the advanced searches is governed by the individual's information release settings. As an example, a search for all students whose permanent address is in Houston, TX will not necessarily return a complete list of those students; rather, it will return all students from Houston with release settings set to allow the information to be displayed to the user, based on the user's access level.
