There are three types of directory listings / people profiles that you can create in the School of Medicine web system:

  1. Full profile – a profile that is managed on your web site.
  2. External link – for people who already have a profile on another web site (such as Find a Doc).  This option also works well for lab or division web sites who can link to profiles maintained on their department web site. It helps avoid duplicate content and the need to maintain information on multiple web sites.
  3. No link – for people you wish to display in a gallery but who don’t need a full profile.  Administrative personnel are often assigned this type of profile.

Full Profile

  1. In the Dashboard, select Directory > Add New
  2. Title: add the person’s name and degrees (e.g.: Bob Smith, MD)
  3. Body content: fill in whatever profile information you wish to provide.  Common categories often include education, research, specialty areas, certifications, awards, publications, etc.
  4. Under the General Info tab
      1. Display Name: add the person’s name and degrees (e.g.: Bob Smith, MD). Be sure to type the additional variations (reverse, first, last), so the profiles sort correctly on the website.
      2. Override Alphabetical Sort: check this option if the person should have priority placement in gallery view.  This option is often used for department chairs and center directors. It will place them ahead of everyone else in the gallery view. All other profiles will display alphabetically by last name after the prioritized profiles.
      3. Sort Order: allows you to specify the order when multiple profiles have been given priority with the override alphabetical sort option.
      4. Gallery Summary: the information you add to this field will display below the persons name in the gallery view.
  5. Fill in all pertinent information in the Professional Info, Student Info and Resources and Attachments tabs. Click each tab to expand it and see the options.
  6. In the right column of the page
    1. Divisions: If applicable, select any divisions that the person belongs to.
    2. Featured Image: upload a photo of the individual.  Here are some guidelines for profile images.  If no photo is uploaded, a generic old well image will display for the person.
