Editing profile information in Campus Directory 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.  Most of your information will come from campus systems, either Experts.Illinois (for tenure-system 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 a tenure-program faculty member, follow the Instructions for Experts.Illinois users.

Website Profile Screen

  1. 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.  
  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.

Your Profile

Some information in your profile is specific to your department and some comes from campus sources.  Below is a description of fields you will see, though some details will be different from department to department.
  1. Research/Program Areas - These categories are specific to your department and allows us to create connections between your profile and other pages on the site
  2. E-Mail - By default, your official campus email address will be shown.  You can change the address, or blank it here to hide your address on the department website (this will not impact other places your email is shown)
  3. Upload CV - You may upload a CV Document to make it available on your profile page.
  4. Directory Source - You may select the appropriate campus source for your information.  As mentioned above, only tenure-system faculty currently have profiles created in Illinois Experts.

  5. Click the save button near the top after making each change and when finished you may close this tab and return to the department website profile page

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.  
  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.
  5. You will now be on the Profile Editing screen on your website.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.
  8. When finished, click the save changes button to see your new overrides.
  9. 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.
