CHSSWeb provides a number of ways to sort the people affliated with a website. Using tabs at the top of the list page, viewers can sort the people on the list page so they see all people, all faculty, all full-time faculty, and so on. (Click on image to left to see example.) For the sort to work correctly, the categories in each person's bio need to be set correctly.
In the Edit Person window, Banner Information box, there are five settings that affect how people appear in different sort options. Two of these are updated each night from Banner data. The other three are imported from Banner initially but are not updated by subsequent data imports and can be changed by any user who can edit the person's bio.
Updated each night from Banner data:
Imported from Banner when the person is first imported, but maintained by editors of the site:
How the Settings Change Where People Appear
Together, the settings determine whether the person's bio appears on a particular sort within the People Application.
The publishing controls determine whether a person appears on any of the sites with which they are associated. To appear on one or more sites within the system, a person must have a status of "published." People with a status of "draft" do not appear on any sites, though they will still appear in the dashboard.
The following table describes the effect of the settings on the sorting options. The leftmost column contains the sort names. The other columns describe the settings. For instance, a person with a Classification of faculty, an Appointment of instructional, a Job Status of full-time and a Tenure Status of tenure track will appear on the All People sort, the All Faculty sort, the Full-time Faculty sort and the Tenure-line Faculty sort.
