INTERFACE SUGGESTION: The "People" sidebar menu is superfluous. Either have it link directly to the People Directory OR (better) have a search form with type-ahead Ajax lookup (on username and) Real Name.

The left sidebar is due for an UI overhaul, actually. Soon.

I agree with this, I have linked to our ldap server, when I click on the people sidebar, it's lists too many people automatically, and you have to scroll down hundreds of users to get to the bottom of the screen. A search form with type-ahead Ajax would be excellent.

I agree too. Admittedly, the people directory is coming straight from Plone and we havent done any improvements with it yet. Live People searching is definitely a really useful feature. However, would you rather have a separate search box only for people? or would you prefer the global search to return profiles along with other content?

IMO the later is better, cuz we have a constant endeavor to reduce the number of UI controls / elements on screen in oder to make more intuitive for non technical users.
