Search for people

You can quickly find contact information for a colleague just by searching for their name 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 see a card with profile summaries. To see a person’s full profile, click their name. If you search for a manager, you also see a list of the people who report to them.
