I am creating a SharePoint site and we want to include a people directory which includes everyone from our department (who will be the 'members' of this SharePoint site). Ideally, I want a list to auto-populate itself from this members group so it is dynamically changing as new people join and leave.

We would want the majority of info to be what is stored in office 365 anyway (name, email, picture etc.) but would also want another column or two to include a short bio and list of skillsets etc. 

 

Is this possible at all? And how would I go about doing this if so?

 

I also really like the look of the 'People' web part to have this on our home page, but haven't figured out a way to display this dynamically either (populated from this list, preferably). Is this a pipe dream?

 

Any help is greatly appreciated.
