How to set up a faculty folder on a site

The best way to set up a folder that holds faculty bios and that lets individual faculty have full control over their information

Please see the /history site for a good example of how to do this.

  1. Create a new folder called Faculty
  2. For each faculty member, create a folder named the same as that person's campus email ID, eg. "nguyen"
  3. In the contents tab then the sharing tab for each new faculty member folder, grant can add/edit/view/review roles to that specific faculty member.
  4. In each faculty member folder, create a default page that will be the faculty member's bio.
The advantage of this method is that a faculty member has full control over his/her bio page and can use his/her folder to contain any content he/she would like.  This method also does not require that all faculty members have full edit permission on every other faculty member's folder.
