Attention! Any profile that needs changes that includes information from eSIS, name, office location, and e-mail can only be changed by HR, and phone numbers can be updated by the individual. (Make directory changes.)
Profile pages are viewed by visitors using the Directory and People Search.
A profile page is generated automatically upon completion of the hiring process and entry of information in HRS.
Images are uploaded into CommonSpot by the campus photographer. Employees should schedule an appointment for a profile photo. You may upload your own image, but be sure to follow the size guidelines (200x300).
Biographical information, work history, pastimes, etc., can be authored by any CommonSpot author but must be approved by the campus Web team after the page is submitted. The changes will not be visible until the page has been approved.
The FacultyStaff subsite has a page for each employee but subsite lists will only display 300, so you need to locate the page using one of three ways: Quick Find, Reports, or Tools.

Once you have found the page you want to edit, click "View" and select "Work on this Page (All Changes)."
Click the gear, then click "Data."
