You can use a Complementary Source to add additional data points onto your people in the related Directory. Unlike a primary source, complementary sources will not add or remove people, but will instead only append additional data. For example, if you were to store phone numbers in a different system than most basic contact info like name, email, and job title, you would add the phone number data store as a complementary source.
The only data requirement for complementary sources is that it provides the same primary key value as the primary source in order for data to be associated correctly.
