When new employees join an organization, it is important to present them to the rest of the company. The template "Welcome To" serves exactly this purpose and introduces new people to company employees.
Each new employee on the page is displayed on a profile card on which you can find a person's name, job title, location, arrival date, and a department in which they will be working.
Welcome to web-part can be also found under Departments – on the Human Resources page.
The section that lists all the employees is a content-search web part, that uses the display of new employee tiles.
If you are a Contributor 👩🌾, you can see how to configure this web part on the page Content search and see all the various actions and displays that come along with it.
The search bar allows us to find necessary people by typing an employee name or any other keyword.
The search bar is a Powell 365 web-part "search-box" which is linked to the search query.
The refiner on the left further facilitates search through different filters that enable us to find people according to their job title, arrival date, department, and so on.
To create this refiner, Powell refinements panel web-part was used. If you are a Contributor 👩🌾, you can see how to configure this web part on the page Refinement Panel.
On the Welcome To page, Contributors
can create a new "welcome to", via the button "new welcome to". If you are a Standard user,
this button will not be visible to you.
This button is a Powell button web-part, that simplifies the user contribution on the Intranet. When you need to create new content, there is no need to go to the SharePoint back-office thanks to the button web part.
If you are a Contributor 👩🌾, go to the page "Create a new welcome to" that will walk you through how to create a new "welcome to" page for a newcomer.
To access more information on each employee, simply click on an employee's name on the profile card.
ex: Click on the name "Mike Brown". A separate page will appear with more detailed information about Mike Brown and his responsibilities.
The middle section displays the employee information and a description of his new job along with his future responsibilities.
This section is a Graph query web part that uses the display of a "New employee Detail". If you are a Contributor 👩🌾, find out more about this web part and how to configure it on the widgets page Graph.
On the left side The section "Recent new employees" is a content-search web part displaying the list of other recent new employees.
If you are a Contributor 👩🌾, check out the page content-search, to see how to configure this web part.
You can go back to the main page via the button "back to all new employees" which is a button web-part mentioned earlier on the page.
