Adding and changing classifications for people

Users cannot add themselves to classifications for their staff type (nor can they add themselves to research themes or other categorisations), so the admin will have to do that. It can be done after they have edited their profiles - until they are added to a staff classification then they won't appear in any list. By default the directory will have three classifications of member, shown in the left navigation at the top level of the directory - these are:

  • Faculty
  • Staff
  • Graduate Students

The names of these classifications can be changed, the classifications can be removed and additional classifications can be added.

Each classification page can contain text, images etc. and from the classification page you can add members of the directory. For instance, here is a an edit view of the 'Graduate students' category in the CEI website

Graduate students category for CEI

If you click on 'add' you will see a list of all members of the directory so you can choose another. If 'Graduate student' is selected in a person's profile as a category, they will automatically appear in this list.
