Office 365 People Search:Hide default result



Out of the box, People search result webpart shows the list of people as a result.

However, I had a requirement to remove the default people search coming in result webpart when page loads.

with the default query :
- {searchboxquery}contentclass=spspeople -accountname:rapidcircle.in


Spent few hours to find the solution finally got this useful tip from my Search guru MIKAEL SVENSON

To remove the default result need to bind the query with {?<query>}

the {?{searchboxquery}} will remove everything in the query if the {searchboxquery} variable is empty

Hope this small piece of information will save your time.
