Example: How do I show business phones on faculty directories?

  1.  Start from the Portal Admin homepage and click on the "Faculty & Staff Directory Type" link in the Directories section.
  2.  In the directory record, click the Configuration tab in the All tab section.
  3.  In the "Business Phone Display Status" row of the "Faculty/Staff Fields" subtotal header, adjust the numerical value of the "Value" column. The "Value" column can contain one of three options:
    • 0 — hides the field
    • 1 — shows the field when data is present
    • 2 — always shows the field
      • this displays a "--" when there is no value
