This feature works comparably in both the Classic and Flex UI versions of the UBCMS. In the future, screenshots and language will be updated to reflect Flex UI.

Add the component to the page. There are two tabs: Information and Image.
This component will display the contact and departmental information for one individual. To create a list of personnel, use a series of these components. The component can also be placed in the right sidebar.
Name: Provide the person's full name, in normal order; e.g. 'Jane Doe.' To include their degrees, use standard abbreviations (e.g. PhD) and separate with commas. (This information will be displayed in bold text, and linked if a URL is provided.)
Link: If desired, provide a link to the person's personal website or a profile page elsewhere on your website.
Open links in new window: Select if you wish the above link to open in a new browser tab or window.
Hide photo: Select to over-ride displaying the associated image.
Title: Provide their formal title(s); e.g.'Resource Manager' or 'Director of Archaeological Survey; Adjunct Professor.' (This information will be displayed in italics.)
Department: Provide their department's formal name, if desired. (Your main unit name is implied by the branding on your website and is probably not needed.)
Address: Provide their personal office location, if desired. A complete mailing address, including zip code, is preferred.
Phone: Please use a consistent standard format, including the area code; e.g. '716-645-1234.' Multiple numbers are possible; use a semi-colon to separate them. (This information will be prefixed with Phone: .)
Fax: Please use a consistent standard format, including the area code; e.g. '716-645-1234.' (This information will be prefixed with Fax: , and start on the same line as the phone number.)
Email: Provide ONE email address. It will become a 'mailto:' link when published. (This information will be prefixed with Email: .)
Alt text: Add a description of the image for users who may have difficulty seeing it. Do not include 'Picture of'. (Alt text is required by New York State policy for most images. See webaim.org for tips on writing alt text.)
Optionally provide a personal portrait.
It's recommended that you include photos for every entry or have none, not a mix of both. If a small number do not include photos, you may wish to include a dummy image or silhouette.
For a consistent, professional appearance, we also recommend all of the portraits have a similar style; e.g. full color, similar lighting, facing forward, neutral background, showing head and shoulders only.
This is an experimental Flex UI feature which will be made available to all users Fall 2021
