What is the people directory?
The people directory is an overview page of all Confluence users.
Here you can find all users, mark them as favorites and navigate to their profiles. Furthermore, use the search to find the right person.
Since Linchpin User Profiles 2.21, it's also possible to filter the people directory. The filters that can be applied are based on profile fields like languages or department etc.
Two overview options
Inside the people directory, there are two main overview pages.
You can find them in the left sidebar, in the discover section.
The "All People" overview is the default one. Here you can see all users within your Confluence instance.
People with Personal Spaces
Here you can view all users who set-up a personal space.
In the right upper corner of the people directory, there is a button called Invite Users.
It allows you to invite anyone (via e-mail or sign-up link) to join your Confluence system.
Click on the Invite Users button. It will take you to the correct page inside the Confluence administration.
Here, you can find an invitation link. Send this link to any colleague. If they open it, they can sign up to your Confluence.
Click on the Reset button to reset the invitation link. If you do so, a new link will be generated and the old link won't work anymore.
Further down below you can find an e-mail contact form.
Here, inside the Message text field, you can enter the invitation message. Above, inside the Email To field, you can enter one or many e-mail addresses to invite others to your Confluence.
If you enter multiple e-mails, please separate them via commas.
NEW IN 2.21
Since version 2.21, the people directory includes a filter option.
Click on the Additional filters button to open the filter function.
Here you can filter all users by profile fields.
You can, for example, display only users from Washington who speak French. Or only your colleagues working in Canada. And so on.
To access this feature, navigate to Confluence administration → Linchpin User Profiles → People directory.
Here, you can see two tabs: Filter & List view

You can enter either one or several superiors.
Then, click on the Save button.
Congratulations! The people directory will feature an Org Chart now.
To view the Org Chart, navigate to the people directory. Click on the Org Chart button located in the sidebar on the left side.
If you entered more than one superior, you will see tabs for every respective superior, labeled with their names. Each tab features the Org Chart of the respective superior.
Who are superiors?
Superiors are users who are the top. Those users don't have any superiors above them. They lead their respective teams/departments.
Tile layout / Table layout
You can switch between two layout options when using the people directory.
The tile layout can be activated via the tile button .
This layout will display contacts as tiles. Besides the user's name and avatar picture, their profile header sub-line will be displayed, too. For more details, refer to our Subline in Profile header documentation.
The tile layout also features a favorite button - click on the star shaped button to add a user to your favorite contacts.
The table layout can be activated via the table button .
This layout features a more detailed profile view, including more information about each user. Furthermore, you can define which information is displayed in this view.
The table layout always displays information taken from the profile header.
To change what is displayed within the profile header and thus also the table layout of the people directory, navigate to Confluence administration → Linchpin → User Profiles → Profile editor.
Click on the Edit button in the dark grey profile header area. Here, select what fields are displayed within the profile header and the table layout of people directory.
