Managing people on your LAS Drupal site

A quick guide to updating your directory on LAS Framework sites.

Adding new people to the directory

When adding new people to your site, all you need are three items: their netid, their role in the department, and the source for their data.  The steps below will help you import new people to your site.
  1. Login as a Directory Editor
  2. Using the black and white bars at the top of your site, navigate to Manage -> People and click the Directory Import tab.
  3. Choose the primary role for this person (Faculty, Grad Student, etc).  Additional roles can be added later.
  4. Choose the directory source for this person.
      • Illinois Experts - this will be for tenure system faculty or anyone who has a public profile on Illinois Experts.
      • Campus Directory - this option can be used for all other full-time employees not in Illinois Experts.
      • None - this will be used for all students, whose information can not be pulled from central sources.
  5. Enter netids - list one netid or @illinois.edu email address per line
  6. Click the Import button
