3.2. Updating Your Online Profile

Each School of Business faculty, staff, and Ph.D. student is able to have an online profile on the School of Business website. To request an online profile (People page), email communications@business.uconn.edu.

As of January 14, 2016, the new UC People online profile system has replaced the UUP system where a user must update both their basic and extended profiles. Now the content is all consolidated into a single location which the user may update.

For detailed instructions on how to access and edit your profile, see below.  To add a profile photo to your online profile page, follow the instructions here. To update or add your CV/Resume on your online profile, follow the instructions here.

Logging In

The first step to updating your online profile is logging into the site by clicking "Webmaster Login" at http://www.business.uconn.edu.

The direct link is: http://www.business.uconn.edu/wp-admin.


Updating Profile Page

Every faculty/staff/student that is present on the site has access to edit their people Page.  

To access your people page from the administration panel, you will want to navigate to the "People" option on the left.

After reaching the people section, your name should be the only one listed. Click on your name to edit it.


Editable Information


Profile Fields


You are allowed to edit any content box starting with "First Name" and ending with "URL". All of the sections except for "About" and "File" can be changed with text.


About Section


If you are editing your about section, and are comfortable with HTML, you can edit the information more accurately in the Text Editor, otherwise you will want to edit your page looking at the Visual editor.


Visual Text


Here, page information (if any) will be listed.  You can fix any text that is present, add files, etc. Please do not add profile photos or CVs/Resumes in the about section. To add a profile photo, follow the instructions here. To update or add your CV/Resume, follow the instructions here. Adding media such as recent publications can be done easily in the Visual editor.  You can upload your Media file (.pdf, .docx, .xls, etc.) and link it right on your page from this Visual Editor.  If you simply click "Add Media" right under About, you will be brought to a thumbnail list of all the media files uploaded currently on the site. 



If you click "Upload Files", you can add your new media file.  When it is done uploading, make sure that it is checked off, and that the information corresponding to your file is correct.  If so, click "Insert into post" on the bottom right, and the media file will be linked into your about section (NOTE: This will add the Media file where you were last editing text, so be careful to add your media in the correct location). 



After your media has been added to the site, you can edit the text that appears as the link to your file. Make sure that any photo that you include has the "Alt Text" field filled out, to accommodate site viewers that use screen readers or just has images turned off in their browser.


If you have trouble with adding media correctly, or need help cropping a photo, please feel free to contact communications@business.uconn.edu for assistance.


When you are done editing the page, click the blue "Update" button on the top right. 


IF YOU FEEL AS IF YOU HAVE MESSED SOMETHING UP / BROKEN THE PAGE – don't worry, all is not lost.  On the page itself, there is an option to see and restore previous versions of the page.  You can restore your page back to its original state here.




Do Not Edit

Several options are available to you, but should not be edited as it may create broken functionality and unexpected behavior and inaccurate information. 


Do not edit the permalink section; doing so can cause changes to the page URL.

You also don't want to touch the "Attributes" panel either.


Please do not add your profile to any groups without prior approval from the Office of Communication at communications@business.uconn.edu as there is a process to ensure consistency and accuracy of this information. As tags are not used by the School of Business, please do not add any tags.

 Status, Visibility, Published On

Changing the Status, Visibility, and Published On sections can change some of the functionality of the page if altered, so it is best to stay away from these. Additionally, do not touch the "Move to Trash" link.
