Filters

  • searchbar:{true | false} (default = "false", which is different from the OfficeRoster widget!)
    This controls the display of the search bar at the top of the widget for all results.
    This should always be used when you have more agents than you have displayed on the initial view.
    This option cannot be combined with the office option.
  • sort:{last | first | random | office} (default = "last")  *only applies to the initial view
    This determines the initial sort on the first load of the Roster. If the search bar is also shown, then, once you select a letter, this sets the sort by last name.
  • limit:nn (default = 20) *only applies to the initial view
    How many profiles to show in the initial view. Once you select a letter, the limit is removed.
  • office:on  *applies to the initial view
    This filter will cause the widget to display the list of offices as the initial view.
    This option cannot be combined with the searchbar option.
    The following two options apply to the MAP view of the offices:

     

    • mappin:{purple | red | blue} (default is purple)
      This filter controls the map pin color.
