DirectorySpot allows an organization to turn on the "Data Sharing" Feature which allows users to decide if they want to "share" their directory information with other users or "hide" it. If you enable this feature, then the default will be to hide ALL entries for members until each user goes in and clicks "share."
1. First you need to enable "Edit your own data" - Go to Manage Users / Grant Edit Access and follow the instructions. Or see the help desk article for more details on how to do this. This will enable your users to make changes to their records.
2. To enable Data Sharing - Go to Manage Directory / Settings.
3. Click the box to allow users to share or hide their data. The default will be that all records are hidden. You can click the button for "Share all data" if you want to make all data shared but then each person could go in and hide their own data. Click "save".
4. You will get a message that your settings have been updated. If you have hidden all data, then each user will now need to go in and "share" their record. As a user, log in and go to Directory/Search Contacts. Find your own record and double-click to get the edit screens. Here you can click "Share Data" to make your record visible. Or you can make edits and then click "Share Data." All data is either hidden or shared.
