Search for Contact Person with TYPO3

Our TYPO3 extension for a targeted contact person search is a good example of programming that is tailored to the customer's wishes down to the last detail. There are of course various ready-made extensions for the display of address data. However, the customer's data structure and requirements could only be realized with a new extension. This extension "a7contact" provides the basic functions and the data structure. For additional functions such as a map and a contact form, however, the extension uses already existing extensions.

Specially developed for a housing association, this TYPO3 extension allows different types of data records to be created and linked with each other:

  • for the rental properties of the building cooperative, which are named after the respective street in which they are located
  • for the cities where the objects are located
  • service centers and service offices in whose area of responsibility the objects fall
  • persons who are responsible for the rental objects
  • functions of the responsible persons

The TYPO3 extension a7contact offers a filter function for the contact data records, so that their selection for the respective rental objects can be limited first to the city and then to a street there. The responsible contact persons, usually a customer service representative and a housekeeper, are then displayed with their contact details, service times and photos. The employees can also be contacted via a form. In addition, the service center or service office responsible for the property is shown with contact data and service times and a route planner function is provided (for details see Interesting Options).
