Directory Configuration

These instructions are for Site Managers only. The directory only includes College of Engineering personnel from OSU Human Resources data. Engineering Web Services cannot make changes to this information. Please contact your HR representative if a change is required. 

1. Choose the Configuration tab from the administrator menu.

3. The first section permits the selection of departments, units, or centers. Click on the name of the selection to add it to the right-side box. To deselect, click the name of the selection to return it to the left-side box.

4. The Select People section allows you to add anyone in the college to your site. For instance, if your department is BME and you would like to include a person from CBE you can search for them by name or name.number. Search for the name of the person and choose add and they will be added to the list of people. To remove, select remove.

5. Under Other Options, you can exclude people by entering their name.number. By default the directory does not include GRA's, GTA's, GAA's, or Fellows. You have the option to include them by these check boxes.
