Admins and Site builders can also opt to toggle on Directory Filters. 

Directory filters allow attendees to sort the directory based on criteria set by the Admin or Sitebuilder. Filters are created when a multi-choice question is added to the Registration form.

Note: If you do not have any multiple choice questions enabled, no filters will be available. 

To select filters to be available for attendees, hover over the 'Directory Filters' tab and select the pencil icon that appears. 

Then, select from the filters and click 'Save Filters':
