I love it, only problem with it could be something like a new employee and linking them through to the printer. That may have to be created by the admin but after that off it goes!

I had already visited the Simile Project before reading this page. One of those joys of the web. Open source software which surprises the user with the results. Great example to use, as far as I'm concerned.

One concern might be the privacy of employees' personal information–especially if editing is open to all users. This is a different issue from vandalism. Adding “John Doe is a jerk” is clearly malevolent, but adding something such as marital status or age could be done with no ill intent, but could still be illegal.

Although Chad's concern strikes me as valid, the current examples above appear pretty safe to me. Anything beyond should be made clear is voluntary disclosure by the employee, such as marital status or age or certain preferences. If in doubt, check with legal counsel competent for your area.

I have found software for corporate directory automatical creation. It can generate corporate directory from org chart, HR database (such as SAP, Oracle, LDAP, etc) and excel file. Directory can be exported to Word, PowerPoint and PDF.
Free trial desktop version can be downloaded there: http://live.sf.orgplus.com/crm.web.forms/web/eval/WebEval-us.aspx <sup></sup>
