Reproducing the Issue

  1. Go to Company Info;
  2. Click Directory Search;
  3. Do any search;
  4. Select one or many of the results;
  5. Click Export;
  6. See that initially only Full Name is available as a field in Export Search Results, or that there are some missing fields that you need to add.


This happens because, for the fields to appear Directory Search, they should be enabled to everyone on RBP.


To add the fields, you'll need to provide read permission in RBP for all the fields which need to be shown in directory and assign this role to everyone. The permission to the fields is enabled on the "Employee Data" section, as can be seen below:



It is necessary that everyone has this permission role, with target population to everyone for the fields to appear on the export option.
