People Finder ChannelPosted by in Channels
The My VolState portal provides an advanced version of the “People Finder” you may already be familiar with from the main website. It allows for searches by first name or last name or both. It also allows for partial searches. So if you are not sure about the spelling of a name you can type in the first few letters. Just be warned that may turn up lots of results!
Where Is It?
- Log into the My VolState portal at https://portal.volstate.edu/.
- Click on the “Search” tab.
- The “People Finder” channel is at the top of the left-hand column by default.
How Do I Use It?
Type a full or partial name into either the “First Name” or “Last Name” fields (or both). The more specific you can be, the better your search results. It’s possible to do a search on just part of a name, such as first and last initial. Searching for the initials D. P. currently returns 3 results. Searching for J. S. returns 15.
Search results include a full name, office location, email, and phone number. If you need to search again you click the “Search Again?” link at the bottom of the results page.
If you don’t know the name of the person you need to contact but you know the name of the office or department you can use the “Office and Department Directory”. By default it’s located directly below the People Finder.
