The webguys and a group of people on campus are working together to come up with stronger, more flexible person records, that will change the way faculty/staff lists and person records work. We will send a note to all Drupal users when that happens. Instructions below should work until then.
Faculty and staff lists are a view showing all people in a department, office, or center.
Because they are views, the lists display information stored in person records. To update information on the list, update the associated person record(s).
To be displayed in a particular view a person must
- have a published "Person" node*
- be defined as "Faculty" or "Staff" in the "Type" field of the Person node
- be assigned to the correct Unit (department, office, etc.) field on the Person node in the "Faculty/Staff" fieldset.
*The location of the person node in the menu has no effect on the view.
The order of people on a Faculty or Staff listing is determined by the "Sort Name" field on the Person node.
Entries should follow a "last name, first name" or "surname, given name" format.
Note: The sort name field is intended to give you flexibility to indicate the proper alphabetization order and easily accomodate different naming conventions, not to override the College's faculty/staff list standards.
In other words, don't use it to sort your lists by first name. If you want a special order for a particular purpose, contact [webguys] for options.
To update data—such as names, positions, class years, etc.—in a faculty or staff list, update the information on the associated person record.
To find the associated person record, click on the person's name in the view.
