Profiles

Once a page has been added, this is the older of the two tools that can be used to add, organize and maintain staff profiles.  In addition to this tool, the Faculty List from Faculty Database tool can be used to display a staff directory on your school’s website.  This newer tool pulls the directory information from the Users Database.  When a new user is added, they can automatically be displayed in the staff directory.  See the help manual for the Faculty List from the Faculty Database tool, or the Users Database for details on setting up the tool.

There are many other creative uses for the Profiles tool.  For example it could be used on a library page to list and describe the books that would be featured in a "Battle of the Books" contest or any place you would like to display pictures with a description and possibly an email link in a table format.
