The People Website was developed by the Web and Digital Communications and Marketing workgroup within the Department of University Communications. For assistance, browse the common questions below. For further assistance, submit a notification, e-mail us at firstname.lastname@example.org, or call 305-284-1600.
Who can edit my profile?
Basic information on your profile such as honorifics (Mr. Mrs. Ms., Dr., etc), first and last name, phone number, e-mail address, position title, and location all come from Workday and HR data. Changing the information in Workday will update the information that appears in the People Website automatically.
People information in Workday is pushed to the People Website multiple times per week. If you need updates from Workday published immediately, use our notification form, e-mail email@example.com or call 305-284-1600.
What "people" are included on the People Web site? Are students? Alums? How about vendors and contract employees?
All full-time faculty, staff, and administrators are included on the People Website. Students are not included unless they are also full-time employees. However, in certain circumstances, additional profiles can be added to the People site in cases where consultants, vendors, volunteers, or other people should be added. E-mail firstname.lastname@example.org for assistance.
If I leave the University, does my profile listing disappear automatically? What if my title changes, or if I move to a new position at the University?
The People Website only displays current UM employees as per Workday Human Resources data. Once the Human Resources data is updated to indicate that an employee has moved to a new position or is no longer with the University, the profile information will reflect these changes. The Website checks the HR data and refreshes profiles regularly multiple times per week.
I work at UM but don't see my profile when I search for it. What if someone is missing in the directory?
Under certain circumstances, individuals can be added to the People site in cases where consultants, vendors, volunteers, or other people should be added. E-mail email@example.com for assistance.
By default, all profiles are available to be searched since the Website functions as a University directory. Under special circumstances, a profile can be hidden from the directory. Coordinate that with your designated People Profile Manager.
Can I edit my own profile and add my own advanced information?
Certain basic information can be edited directly in Workday. Advanced profile content, however, is managed via designated People Profile Managers. Work with them to determine the best method for updating your profile page.
