Updating the Profiles of Others

For instructions see Editing the Profiles & Contact Information of Others.

Updating Your Own Profile

Making a change to your own profile is very easy. Log in to backend of the website and look for your name in the far right of the top (black) bar.  As soon as you click on your name, you are brought to your profile page. 

Access your profile by clicking on your name

There you will find several horizontal and vertical table which allow you to edit essential contact information, as well add photos and more in depth information which is used to "feed" a department faculty/staff listing.

To make a change, simply choose the Edit tab. 

And then proceed from there by clicking on any these tabs to make changes:
