- Find last names that sound like my search term
- This option takes what you have entered in the search box, and treats it as a phonetic representation of a last name, searching for people whose last name contains the same sounds. This option does not search first names or full names—only last names.
- Search within...
- Allows you to select a population to narrow your search results. If you are searching for a popular first name, for example, limiting the population searched can help to reduce the results to fewer than the maximum of 100.
Results are grouped in sections by the type of match, and ranked according to the accuracy of the match:
- SUNet ID — a single, exact match
- Email — exact matches (usually no more than 2 or 3) on the user-name portion of the address
- Phone — rarely finds more than one match; very rarely combined with any other search type
- Last name
- First name
- Full name
Only the first 100 listings will be displayed for each search type. This effectively limits only the more common first name ("Jennifer") and last name ("Li") searches. If your search results in more than 100 matches, try adding more letters of the name, or limiting the search to a specific population (in "more search options").
