  2. Create organization(s) in the directory. Depending on the hierarchy, add other organizations (they may correspond to units, divisions, departments, etc.). An organization can contain position (e.g Dean, secretary, SEO) that will be connected with person (a physical person).

A person content type can hold one or more positions or be member of one or more organizations. All contact types have optional fields with variety of contact information, including phone, cell phone, fax, email, address, zip code, etc. Such data management is very suitable for universities.

collective.contact.core can be useful for all kinds of organizations, despite their size, number of employees or subdivisions. Created directory is easy to manipulate and can be branched or edited at any time.

collective.contact.core adds new content types, but preserves Plone functionality, especially concerning users’ rights. Every ‘organization’ content type is similar to folder, thus you can specify in the Sharing tab what rights users have . Moreover, default Plone search is very efficient when you want to search for a specific person or position on all the website.

Use collective.contact.core to arrange your organization and contact information.
