Edit Your Profile on Business Website

Last updated: August 17, 2017

Two points to note before you get started:

  • Please DO NOT use Internet Explorer when you edit your profile. Firefox is a great option and so is Google Chrome.
  • In order for your edits to appear on the live website, they must first be approved (see “Submitting your changes for approval” below).

If you have any questions, please contact uobusiness@uoregon.edu.

Step One: Logging in

To begin editing your page, you must first log in. You should have received instructions via email about setting up an account soon after your first day at the University of Oregon. Please contact uobusiness@uoregon.edu if you need those instructions again or have any questions on that process. If you have already set up your account, follow these steps to log in and access your page:

  1. Go to the Intranet access page at https://business.uoregon.edu/log-in (or click on “Log In” at the very bottom of any page on the Lundquist College website). Click the yellow button that says “LOG-IN TO WEBSITE TO EDIT PROFILE.”
     
  2. The following page will appear. Use your Duck ID (the first part of your email address, before the @ sign) and password to log in.


     

  3. After you click “Login,” you will be presented with the website’s dashboard. Navigate away from this page to your faculty profile page (the URL will be http://business.uoregon.edu/faculty/yourfirstname-yourlastname — or click the “Faculty and Staff” at the bottom of any page on the Lundquist College website and search for your name).
     
  4. At the top left-hand corner of your profile page, you will see a link that says “This Page.” Hover your mouse over this link.
     
  5. A drop-down menu will appear. Click the “New Draft” link. This will take you to an editing platform that will allow you to make changes to your profile page.


     

  6. View step two below for further information on making edits to your profile page. View steps three and four at the bottom of this page for information on saving and publishing your information.

Step Two: Editing Your Profile

Use the tabs in the left-hand navigation column to move between the sections of your profile.

IMPORTANT: It is okay to navigate through the tabs without saving. HOWEVER, if you close your browser window before you navigate to the “Save Options” tab and save your work, following the instructions outlined below in step three, your changes will be lost. Be sure to save often if needed.

Basic Info

The first tab you’ll see is the "Basic Info" tab. It includes your:

  • Photo: Please don’t change your photo before contacting the communications office. The Lundquist College maintains certain standards regarding profile photos. If you are a new faculty member, the communications office will contact you with information on an upcoming photo session when one is scheduled. Current faculty are also welcome to inquire about getting updated photos during the next scheduled session. Please contact uobusiness@uoregon.edu for more information.
     
  • First and last name
     
  • Job title: All title changes made will be approved by Connie Brady before being published.
     
  • CV: Use the “Browse” and “Upload” buttons to upload your CV with an updated copy. All CVs must be saved as PDF files. (You will not be able to upload a Word file.) Any CVs uploaded will be automatically renamed in the following format: yourfirstname-yourlastname-cv.pdf. This ensures that your new CV overwrites the old one, eliminating any outdated CVs from our website.

IMPORTANT NOTE ON CVs: Don’t see your updated CV after publishing? This is most commonly a browser cache issue. Please try clearing your browser cache before contacting the communications team.
 

Contact Info

This includes your:

  • Office number
     
  • Phone number
     
  • @uoregon email address
     
  • Social links: Add links to your personal website, LinkedIn page, Facebook page, or Twitter account.
     
    • Use the “Service” drop-down menu to select Website, Facebook, LinkedIn, or Twitter.
       
    • Enter the URL for the service you’re linking to.
       
    • To add another link, click the “Add another item” button and repeat the steps above.

News

This content is generated dynamically, from stories that are published on the Lundquist College website.

Email uobusiness@uoregon.edu with a link to the story and an explanation of your connection to the story, if not obvious from the text.

What about linking to stories that appear on other websites or news sites? Unfortunately, we aren’t able to put stories from outside websites in the News tab of your profile. However, you are welcome to enter this information into the “Bio” section of your “About” page. For example, you could add a sentence like “Professor Smith-Jones shared her opinions about Oregon’s weather in a recent article in the New York Times” and link it to the article in question.

Step Three: Saving Your Edits

At any time during the editing process, you can save your edits without sending them to the communications office for approval. We recommend you do this occasionally as you work, just as you would with any software program, to avoid losing work during a power outage or other event.

  1. Click “Save Options” in the right-hand navigation column of the profile editing page.
     
  2. Write a brief summary of your changes in the “Moderation Notes” box.
     
  3. In the “Moderation State” pulldown, choose “Save as draft.”


     

  4. Click the “Save” button.
     
  5. After your draft is saved, you are taken to a preview of your changes as they will appear on the site. These changes are not yet live on the site. You will be able to tell that this is a draft page by the “Moderation Status” header above the preview.

To return to working on your draft and make more changes at any time, place your cursor over the “This Page” link in the top, left-hand corner of the page. Select the “Edit Draft” option when it appears.

If you are satisfied with your changes, click the yellow “Reject/Publish” button under the “Moderation Status” header and follow the instructions below to submit your changes for approval.

If you are NOT satisfied with your changes, click the yellow “Reject/Publish” button under the “Moderation Status” header and keep working on your draft.


Step Four: Submitting Your Changes for Approval and Publishing

Once you are ready for your changes to be published the site, you must submit the page to the communications office for publishing.

  1. Click “Save Options” in the right-hand navigation column of the profile editing page.
     
  2. Write a brief summary of your changes in the “Moderation Notes” box.
     
  3. In the “Moderation State” pulldown, choose “Save and send for review.”
     
  4. A menu called “Notify” will appear. Choose “aminer.”


     

  5. Click the “Save” button.
     
  6. Your changes have been saved and sent to the communications office for approval.

A NOTE ON COMMUNICATIONS APPROVAL PROCESS: The communications office will try to approve your request within 24 hours. You will receive an automated notification when this occurs. On Fridays, any profiles marked as being in draft are also published.

The communications office will occasionally make small edits before publishing your profile in order to ensure consistency across all faculty profiles. Citations will be in Chicago style.
