PRO on Your Faculty Webpage

Did you know that by activating PRO to pull to your faculty webpage, you can have direct editorial control over the contents of your page?

Content that you edit in PRO will appear on your webpage after a 12 hour delay, giving you direct control over the information available on your page. Please see below for guidelines on what PRO can put on your webpage and how to maintain and edit those records in PRO, or click here for a quick guide. If you have not already activated your webpage to pull from PRO, contact your department's website administrator to have that feature set up.

Website Administrators: Please click here to find more information on how to activate PRO in CMS.
 

What will appear on my webpage?
  • Campus contact information (office number, telephone number, email address, etc.)
  • Biographical information (teaching and research statements, web biography, research key words)
  • Selected publications with current publication status of either Accepted or Published with the option to link to a comprehensive list of all publications in your records
  • Creative works
  • Contracts/grants
  • Presentations
  • Awards and honors
  • All educational history and/or highest degree earned (with or without the year included)

Every category, with the exception of campus contact information, is optional, meaning you do not have to include every category on your webpage. Confer with your website administrator if you wish to have only some of these fields activated or see below on how to activate certain records (i.e. in Publications, Creative Works, etc.) yourself in PRO.

How do I edit that information in PRO?
To edit contact and biographical information, go to the Personal Information, Teaching/Research Statements, BIO screen in the General Information section in PRO. For more information on how to edit these specific fields in PRO for your webpage, click here.

To pull selected Publications, Creative Works, Contracts/Grants, Presentations, and Awards and Honors to your webpage, go to the specific record in PRO, then select "Yes" under "Display on web page?". Changes in PRO will be visible on your webpage within 12 hours. 


PLEASE NOTE If you do not select any records in a category, your webpage will not generate a tab for that category. For example, if you have not selected any entries under "Presentations", your webpage will not include a Presentations section.

What will my page look like?

Contact information (including your name and faculty title) pulled from PRO will appear at the top of your webpage. All other information from PRO (Bio, Publications, Creative Works, etc.) will appear as tabbed content in the body of your webpage. Each tab corresponds to the category PRO pulls from, i.e. Bio for Bio, Presentations for Presentations, etc. If you do not have content for a tab selected, that tab will not appear on your website. Please see the example below - the sections circled in red come from PRO.

For a more detailed breakdown of what fields in PRO correspond to information on a webpage, please see the PRO-to-CMS guide (PDF).


How can I be sure PRO is pulling the information I want?

You can run a Web Page Information Report using Run Reports or Rapid Reports just as you would generate any other report. Once you've clicked on either Run Reports or Rapid Reports, select "Web Page Information Report" from the Report dropdown menu, choose the widest date range possible, then click "Run Report".

The report generated will clearly show what appears on your webpage and where it comes from in PRO. You can use this report to review any changes you've made in PRO before they go live on your webpage (remember changes in PRO will show up on your webpage after a 12 hour delay).

What on my webpage doesn't come from PRO?
Personal webpage links (such as academic.edu or sites.google links), CV files, and your photo do not come from PRO. To add or update these items on your webpage, please contact your department's website administrator.
