We recently released a new way to find people directly on Ocean.io! The People search allows you to filter through both companies and people at the same time, saving you time and effort.

There are two ways to find people in Ocean.io.

  1. Find the right companies first, then find the right people within these companies

  2. Go straight to finding the right people, by adding filters to both people and the companies they work in simultaneously

Find the right companies first

Go to the company search, and start looking for the right companies first. Once you have applied the necessary filters at the company level, you're ready for the next step. Select the companies in which you'd like to look for people, and click on the 'Find people' button, as shown below.

If you want to find people within just one particular company, you can also click on the number in the 'People' column that represents the number of contacts we found in this company, or open the tab of the company and click on the 'Find people' button. This is shown in the screenshot below:

You now landed in the People search instead. As you can see, all the rows in the table are now replaced with people instead of companies. Apply further filtering on the left-hand side to find people in the right department, with a particular job title, etc.

Go straight to the people search

The second way to find people is to go straight to the People search. You can switch between the Company and People search with the button at the top, as shown here:

Now that you're in the People search, you can apply almost all of the same filters as in the company search, but in one overview. That way, you're skipping the step to find companies first.

In the example below, we combined a company filter (companies using Shopify) with people filters (department of 'supply chain', with management seniority).

The only filter that is not available in this search is the lookalike filter. If you wish to use the lookalike filter anyway, you will have to revert to the two-step process as shown in the first example in this knowledge base article.
