Connect with your users
Profile pages provide a snapshot of individuals, offices, departments, and other groups on campus. The focus of a Profile is contact information so users can connect with the subject of the profile. Profile pages and Profile Lists are ideal to use as your site's contact page.
Profiles can include any of the following:
- Picture and/or cover image
- Brief summary / Bio
- Social media links
- Email addresses
- Phone numbers
- Fax numbers
- Website link
- Degree abbreviations
- Research Area(s)
Profiles can also include sections of supplementary content that appear below the snapshot. A profile of a researcher, for example, might include supplementary content about the focus of their research. A profile of an office might include supplementary content about the services provided by that office.
Create a Profile
Select New > Specialty pages > Profile from the top menu in Cascade.
Profiles can be saved anywhere in your site. They can be organized into their own folders or live side-by-side with other pages. It all depends on how you want to use them.
Profile Lists allow you to create lists of profiles based on defined criteria. Combine Profiles and Profile Lists to create a searchable directory of individuals and/or offices.
