Search for people

You can quickly find contact information for a colleague just by searching for their name or other profile information in Google Cloud Search. A card with their profile information appears at the top of your search results. If your search matches more than one person, you get a list of profile summaries.

To open a person’s full profile, click their name or Show more. The profile information page shows the person's contact information and reporting chain.

Profile card

You can only search for profile information that your organization sets up. If you can't search by job title, phone number, or other profile information, ask your administrator to update user profiles.
