Currently have some questions about searching an internal directory
of 20,000+ people.

There's an opposing thought that an advanced search is required
Upfront for searching by a particular first name, last name, company
We don't have capacity to build both. Also, testing search
functionality is *not* possible until the very end of release which
naturally limits any actions to be taken based on results of user
While I've been observing here for a while, I don't recall any
discussions on best practices for approaching people search and
curious if anyone has some direction and thinking here?
