Creating and Editing Profiles

The Profiles content type is used to create individual pages for staff and faculty in a given department, college, or division. NOTE: If you don't require individual pages, we recommend using a microtemplate for an employee listing.


 

Step 1: Create A New Profile

Follow the same steps as creating other contents by logging in, then click on Shortcuts, Add Content.

On the Profile content creation page, you will notice that the Body field is already pre-populated with a short blurb and an accordion. For faculty, please use the existing headings as this information may be used to populate the FREE database. Feel free to add more sections within the accordion.

Add the name, body content, imagery, and select your Group Audience(s), more details below, then click save.

NOTE: Groups Audience - this field is autocomplete of the different existing Unit and Department content types.

For the first item, associate this profile to the main Group/Unit (such as a College level or Division level).
Add more items if you want this profile to appear in other department/office employee listing.
