Faculty List from Faculty Database Tool (Staff Directory)

The Faculty List from Faculty Database tool can be used to display a staff directory on your school’s website.  This tool pulls the directory information from the Users Database.  When a new user is added, they can automatically be displayed in the staff directory.  

Within the Users Database, groups can be created and faculty/staff can be assigned to them. Each faculty member can belong to any number of groups. This allows him or her to maintain a single website and yet appear in multiple areas on the school website.  A few sample groups are; elementary staff, high school teachers, and bus drivers just to name a few. You are able to display all staff members on a page or any grouping of your total staff.  When displaying staff, you can include (or leave out) the following:

  • Staff pictures, phone extensions, email accounts, titles, etc.
  • Faculty web page links
  • A staff search utility
