“All People” view in SharePoint 2010

One thing we have seemed to have lost is the “All People” link when managing users and groups from SharePoint 2007 in 2010, as shown below from a 2007 site.


However, in SharePoint 2010, this link does not exist… Have no fear however. If you have copy & paste skills, you can get back there. It still exists. Just copy the URL from your 2007 site


And drop the protocol, port, and host sections of the URL out, and use that with the protocol, host, and port of your 2010 site, and you are good to go.


Simple and easy way to get back to that view. Then just add this as a favorite, or, even better yet, create a CustomAction to add it into the toolbar, or site settings page in 2010.

    This does not work for me. Its only bring up the first 50 people of the alphabet.

    No…there’s more than 400 people on the list and it shows part of A and then nothing…there’s no way to even go to the next page of people

    • In that case, go to Site Actions > Edit Page, and then edit the view properties for the web part to show more… all this is, is just a list view web part, looking at the User Information List of the site.
