User Profile Feeds

The profile, profiletable and profilegrid shortcodes pull information from the University directory and Profile Pages and display it on your page. The information is updated automatically from data entered by the employee and employee records in Workday so website content editors shouldn’t have to edit pages displaying user profile feeds except to add or remove people from the list.

Employee Profile Pages

If profile photos, office locations, phone numbers, or other information are not displaying correctly within the profile feed for individual faculty or staff, the employee may need to make some updates to their user profile.

Every Montclair State University employee has an individual profile page on montclair.edu. The URL for an employee’s profile page is:

http://www.montclair.edu/~employeenetid

Employees are able to make some updates directly to their profile page, however some profile page elements are populated by systems managed by Human Resources, such as WorkDay.

To change your user profile photo, degree information, profile description, specialization description, office hours, add links, or update your resume/cv, visit your individual profile page and login with your NetID and password.

To change your phone number, add/update your phone number within WorkDay. Changes will automatically be displayed within your user profile the following morning.

To change your office location, email your correct location to workday@montclair.edu.

To change your job title, contact your Human Resources representative for assistance.

Profile Grid

The profile grid gives an alternate compact presentation for pages where you have a lot of faculty or staff to list, but you still want to have photos for each person.

This will display three people across on a default page template and four across on an advanced page template.
