People List Panes, commonly referred to as faculty/staff lists or directories, are panes that display a curated list of College community members associated with a given department, organization, or group.

The individuals included in a People List Panes can be managed by users who have attended Introductory Drupal training session, with additional editing options available for those who have attended an Advanced Drupal training session.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why doesn't our new faculty/staff member show up as an option in the Add People list?

Drupal syncs user information on a nightly basis, if your new hire recently had an account created, it's possible that it won't appear in the system until the following night. If the account fails to show up after a day please contact web-update@swarthmore.edu.

I've noticed that some individuals have additional information listed along with their contact information (website link, interests, office hours etc.). How do I add this information?

If you would like to include additional information with your People List entry, visit the User Contact Information and Profiles documentation. If you're attempting to adjust the listing of another user, please see the Editing the Profiles & Contact Information of Others (note that this requires advanced editing privileges).
