This is a follow-up to my original post for a quick solution for a adding a web part to the home page that allows for searching for people using first, last or a combination of names. Wildcards are supported on either.
This version has been tweaked to add a select box that also lets a user choose a department to view or search within. You’ll have to hard-code your departments in. A fancier version might use an AJAX call to read from a list or something similar.
To use this, just add a content editor web part to the moss home page and paste the code below into the source view. The form will submit to the default people search results page.
