Tips for building sites

Update your department profile

Many departmental websites at Western use the directory listing to introduce their faculty and staff within a department. Each of these user profiles can be customized to meet individual and departmental needs. If your department uses a directory on the website to list faculty and staff, you probably have a user profile. What you might not know is that you have the editing powers to update / add information to make your profile more complete.

You don’t need to ask your manager to update quarterly office hours or change office locations. As a user, you can update all profile information yourself. Check out these easy 6-step instructions for updating your directory profile on your department’s Drupal website.

While there may be fields in the instructions that may or may not apply to you or your service, the more information you provide, the more attractive your published profile will be. Questions? Do not hesitate to contact web.help@wwu.edu.
