Cascade

Contacts

Description

The contacts widget is used to display a listing of your departments faculty and staff.

It will show a list of all people, and clicking on more info will show a detail view of the specific person. The detail view allows for listing basic contact information, social media information, education, office location and hours, and a series of other person and professional information. It is recommended that the contact's image be set to 169px x 131px and that you store the contact picture in the images folder in the contact widget folder. The widget works by compiling the information in the Person items into the xmldata file and the view>all will format and display the information properly.

How-to

To create a new Contacts widget you must first select the parent folder (We recommend adding it to contacts in the widgets folder). Then head to the "New" dropdown menu in the upper left and select Widgets>>Contacts. This will create a new Contacts widget in the selected parent folder. Select your new Contacts widget page and select "edit", you may now configure your new widget.

Images

If you would like to upload contact pictures, we recommend you put them in the contacts>>images folder.

People

To create a new person item open the "New" dropdown menu and select Widgets>>Contacts>>Person. See the Form Fields section to see what each field corresponds to.

Views

You have the choice of choosing which view for the widget you would like to display on a page. Currently the All view is the only view available which lists all person items in a list view with a more detailed view if the "Full Profile" button is selected.
