There isn’t a built-in function to specifically do this but, depending on the requirements, you may be able to build something using a Blog Collection, with one post per contact. A search bar, linked only to this blog, could then be used to search for matching posts (contacts).

Thank you Paul2009

What are my options then? How would I go about doing this. Is there an zapier integration that I can use that will allow me to create a searchable directory list?

Thanks

Hello Paul2009OK, so its really phone directory lookup (similar to 411.ca) that will have search bar and then a visitor can either lookup either by name or some category such as department. The search should return a specific result such as name,phone number and email address if searching someone specific by name or if the search is by department then it should return a list of people in that department with all the particular mentioned above.Thank you again

Hi Buck, this might be a bit late for you but there is a directory tool called Community Box that allows you to create searchable listings: https://www.communitybox.co/squarespace I'm not sure it's exactly what you're looking for but you can have people in categories and then search and sort by name, categories or location. It's free for up to 25 entries if you wanted to have a play around. 

Full disclosure, I was involved with making this tool but we created it because I'm a Squarespace designer and was frustrated due to the lack of directory options.

Hello 

this question is for thewheelexists I’ve looked at the community box and I like how it’s set up. However I don’t have a membership site. I just wanted to have a directory on my website. In terms of functionality is that possible? 
 

my thanks in advance,

Katty

Hi Ionna, I'm looking for a directory solution too. Can you share why you don't like community box? Appreciate it.

We are a non-profit and don't want to pay in perpetuity. We would prefer either an open source tool or to pay outright.

Hey @racheljcox I'm one of the Community Box co-founders and we are currently working on adding more template and layout options for the directory, as we appreciate the grid and popup option doesn't work for everyone! But that will take a few months. There is an option to create a custom layout for Community Box if you have an idea of the design you want, but there is a one-off fee for this. We can also help with CSS customisations (if you just want to make the popup bigger for example) so feel free to reach out via the live chat or book a 1:1 call from the home page
