For organizations using the Enterprise version of Schoology and depending on the settings in place at the school, the Search tool may also display results for other school directories in your organization, your connections, and Schoology users from around the world.

Notes:
  • On the Schoology Android and iOS mobile apps, the school directory can be found under People from the navigation menu. The directory displays users in your organization only and based on the settings in place at your school.
  • If you're using Schoology Basic, all school directories and Schoology users around the world are included in search results.
