The new Manual will walk you through the details of how the FCS Staff Directory works and will give you insights into Best Practices.

So what can I do with this thing?

How to get around

The new mobile version of the FCS Staff Directory works almost the same on the desktop, on a cell phone, or on a pad or laptop. If you have a touch screen device, you should be able to “touch” your way around the pages, search for a name or worker number, make a call or send an email.

To make getting around The Directory easier, you have a number of options:

The Logo

The FCS Staff Directory logo

Always use the logo at the top-left of EVERY page to return to the home screen.


Google Search Bar

You can search this Directory using our Google Search Bar. Your results will always be based on information within our Directory, NOT from the Internet.

For example: if you search for Medina, you will just get every Medina listed within our pages, but not every Medina on the Internet.

Search for Medina

The results to your search will appear just beneath the search box. You can then click on any of the pages listed to visit that page.

Search results window

For best SEARCH results, use a short search string; a name (last or first – whichever is more unique) or unit number.

Unit Numbers are the ideal search string.

Our search is restricted to the pages in our directory, but when a name appears in more than one page (such as a Manager’s name), the results will present a list of the various pages in which that name is included.

Warning: In some cases it may take a day or two for recent changes and updates to show up in a SEARCH, though I’ve only come across that quirk once. That means that if a page is updated on a Monday, the Search may not reflect this change until Wednesday, or later.

The Local Nav Bar

This is the Nav Bar that appears directly above the Global Nav at the bottom of the page. It includes section-specific Navigation choices, so that, for example, the local nav choices for the Family Services Section are: FSU, FSU Bilingual, CDU and Sub-Acute.

The Local Nav Bar always appears in the color which represents its section: the Program Development Section Nav Bar will have a light violet/purple, the Early Intervention Section will have a light yellow color, and so on.

The page you’re currently viewing will always appear in bold, and will never be clickable.

The Global Nav Bar

The very bottom Nav Bar features links to the major FCS Sections: Program Development, Early Intervention, Family Services, Southeast Health Services and Permanency.

The Section MENU pages

Every section’s MENU Page looks and works exactly the same, except for the different colors and number of available sub-sections (units).

These are the easiest to use and hardest working pages on the directory. Just make a choice.


The List Pages

The actual “data pages,” which contain staff info, all feature a similar look and functionality. Only the section colors are different.

A Directory Map

A top-view of the organization scheme used. You should be able to bookmark the page or pages you use the most so that you can re-open them when you need to.

Regarding Resources

The FCS Staff Resources section of the directory is now contained in its own PDF file (fcsResources.pdf) which retains the feel and look of the printable version. This is still available for your use, but it is recommended that you use it on a desktop or on a larger-screen device.

You can find a link to this document on the front page of this app, and on the front page of the SFHSA public web site:

Our Colors

These are the section colors used in the new FCS Staff Directory. They match those used in the PDF version, but have been adjusted to better suit our screens and printers. Included are the RGB and Hex color codes.

The colors can work as backgrounds in Microsoft Word, Publisher, PowerPoint, etc., to expand the color-branding effect. If you have any questions about how to implement these colors in your documents send me an email and I’ll get you started.
