Editing Your Directory Profile: Short Instructions
Things you can add/edit on your directory profile include:
Name, E-mail, Phone, Street Address
These are automatically imported from the UNC database. You must change them in your UNC directory by going to https://my.unc.edu and clicking on Update Personal Information.
Once you have made your changes there, the School directory will automatically change within 24 hours to reflect your updates.
You can also manually add additional e-mail addresses, phone numbers, and street addresses. See the instructions in the Everything Else section below.
Your default job title comes directly from the UNC database and is the HR-assigned title. You cannot change this, but you can hide it. To hide the default title, contact John Zhu (firstname.lastname@example.org) or David Etchison (email@example.com). You can also manually add a title that better reflects your responsibilities at the School (e.g.: “Graduate Studies Coordinator” instead of the HR-assigned “Administrative Assistant” title). To do that, see instructions in the Everything Else section below.
Degrees and photo
Log in to the School site with your Onyen and go to your directory profile page.
To change/add your degrees and your photo, click on the Edit button. You will see fields prompting you to enter your degrees abbreviations (up to two) and to upload a photo. The photo will scale automatically to fit in the gray banner. Click Save at the bottom of the editing screen to save your changes.
NOTE: When you click Edit on your profile page, you will see fields for your name. DO NOT CHANGE YOUR NAME IN THESE FIELDS. Whatever changes you make to those fields will be wiped out when the School directory makes its daily link-up with the UNC database to get the latest data. You must change your name through the UNC directory by going to https://my.unc.edu.
Research Interests/Job Duties
Log in to the School site with your Onyen and go to your directory profile page. Click on the Edit button. In the Summary field, type in your research interests or job duties as one paragraph. You can apply bold or italics using HTML tags such as <b></b> or <i></i>.
NOTE: The information you enter in this field will appear only in the division/office directories, not in your individual directory profile.
To add any of the other items on the list, go to your School directory profile page, click the Add New button, and select the item type from the dropdown menu. Fill out the information on the ensuing editing screen, and click Save at the bottom of the page. The information will be added to the appropriate predetermined space on the page.
By default, these items are set to Private upon being added, which means the only way one can see it is if they are logged in to the site and have the appropriate permissions. Since this is public-facing information, we obviously don't want to leave it like that. So after you've added an item, make sure to click on "State: Private" and change it to Publish. This will make the item visible to the public.
To edit any of the other items in the list above, go to your School directory profile page, and click the Content button. This will show you a list view of all the items in your profile. Click on the item you wish to edit, then click the Edit button, make your changes, and click Save.
NOTE: For publications, grants, and presentations, you can either add each one as a Publication, Grant, or Presentation item, which can be time-consuming if you are adding a lot of entries. A quicker option is to add a Page and title it Publications, Grants, or Presentations. This will allow you to simply cut and paste your entire list. If you only want to post a few entries, consider using the Publications, Grants, or Presentations items. If you have a big list of publications, grants, or presentations to add, you most likely want to use the Page item.
