CGD Help: Colleague Search
Colleague Search allows you to search for colleague information in CGD; you can also update an existing colleague or add a new one from the search results table.
Enter the LAST name of the colleague of interest.
Go to Colleague Search
- If there is only one colleague with the last name that you
entered, you will go directly to the Colleague Display for that colleague.
- If there is more than one
colleague with the last name that you entered, the program will
present you with a results table of all the colleagues in CGD
with the last name that you entered. Check the list for the name of
interest and click on it to go to the display page for that colleague.
- If you are unsure of the
spelling of the name (eg. Smith vs. Smyth), you may want to use
character (*) in your search. To find both Smith and Smyth, enter Sm*th. This will retrieve all
colleagues with last names that start with Sm and end in th. If
you are not sure whether one of the entries in the results table is
the one you want, click on a likely name to check it; use the Back
button on your browser to return to the Results table if it is not
the one of interest.
From the results table page, you can also edit your existing entry or add a new one:
