Editing profile information in Experts.Illinois from an ATLAS Framework department website

Brief introduction to editing profile information in ATLAS Framework websites

ATLAS Framework websites provide a simple way to maintain a profile page for each faculty and staff member in your department.  The source used for information is either Experts.Illinois (for tenure-program faculty members) or the Campus Directory for all other full-time staff.  These instructions guide you through editing your Illinois Campus Directory information.  If you are not a tenure-program faculty member, follow the Instructions for Campus Directory users.

  2. Click your name to view your profile page. 
  3. Along the right side of the page, you will see a photo and possibly your contact information.
  4. Click the Edit Your Profile button directly beneath this information.

Overriding directory source information

In some cases, the information you want to show on your department website will be different than what is in your campus level profile.  The ATLAS Framework system allows you to override any field with information specific to your department website.
  1. As before, start by going to your profile page on the department website.  This will typically be found by going to your website and looking in the Directory section for the listing page you are under.  Click your name to view your profile page.  
  2. Along the right side of the page, you will see a photo and possibly your contact information.  
  3. Click the Edit Your Profile button directly beneath this information.
  4. You will now be on the Profile Editing screen on your website.
  5. Below the yellow box describing your Directory source you will see a button titled Show All Override Fields.  Clicking this button will expose a number of fields that correspond to the fields shown on your profile page.
  6. Enter the new information you want to show on your department profile only in the fields you want to override.  All other information from your directory source will remain the same.
  7. When finished, click the save changes button to see your new overrides.
  8. Clicking the Edit Your Profile button again will show you the values you used for overrides.  You may remove the overrides by clearing the fields and clicking Save again.
