SharePoint People Picker

July 12, 2010

Have you ever used SharePoint and wished for a more flexible/powerful “People Picker”?  Well, Optimal IdM has just released a fully customizable People Picker (the Optimal People Picker) for SharePoint that works in conjunction with its Virtual Identity Server for SharePoint product.  This release will be included for free along with VIS for SharePoint, however, a stand-alone version of the Optimal People Picker will be released soon and will work with SharePoint 2010 when using Claims Authentication, but will not require VIS for SharePoint.  Some of the powerful benefits and features include:

  • Ability to search on multiple different attributes (not just the user id), at the same time
  • Configurable list of attributes to return to user
  • Ability to sort results
  • Easy to use interface that includes a paged grid view
  • Ability for administrators to apply various filters on the results based on group memberships (filtering based on RBAC)
  • Ability for administrators to create search templates (for commonly used searches)
  • Ability for administrators to apply different filters for permission searches
