Who's Who - help
Internal and public version
In the Who's Who, a strict distinction is made between the internet version, which is visible to all users, and the intranet version, which requires logging in.
If you click "Who's who" at the top of the screen, you will be taken to the internet version of the Who's Who directory, recognizable by the blue internet banner:
Under the blue banner to the right, you will find "intranet version". If you click this, you will be taken to the intranet version of the Who's Who directory, recognizable by the orange intranet banner:
The intranet version shows more details than the internet version. For more information, see Who's Who – information and modifications.
Dutch and English version
The Who's Who directory is available in English as well as in Dutch. At the top right of the screen (just under the banner), you will find the link "Nederlandse versie". If you click this, you will be taken to the Dutch version of Who’s Who.
