Website Redesign

Faculty Pages in Omni CMS


Faculty pages in the legacy CMS system will be migrated to Omni CMS after the rest of the website migrations are complete. However, we know that departments are eager to get their faculty pages in the new format. This tutorial walks through creating a faculty page in Omni CMS manually. 


Creating a Faculty Page

1. Acess Omni CMS: From the top of the page, Go to "Content> Pages". 

          Content> Pages

2. Setup Faculty Folder (Optional): 

  • We recommend setting up a “Faculty” folder for better organization. 
  • Click “+New”

           New Button

  • Click “Create New Folder”. 

            Create a new folder  

  • Label the folder “Faculty”. 

3.  Create a New Faculty Page: 

  • Within the desired folder, click "+NEW". 
  • Choose "New Faculty Detail Page". 
  • Fill the required fields: 
  1. Page Title: Use the faculty's name (e.g., Dr. Jane Smith). 
  2. Filename: Use the format "lastname_firstname" (e.g., smith_jane). 
  • Click “Create”. 

    Insert new page


4. Edit Page with MULTIEDIT: 

  • Click “MULTIEDIT” in the top right. 


  • This feature imports faculty data from PeopleSoft. 
  • Update the following fields: 
  1. “Email”: Input the faculty's email.
  2. “Image”: Choose the faculty's profile picture. 
  3. “Image Description”: Enter the faculty's name (e.g., Dr. Jane Smith).

5. Review, Edit & Publish:

  • Edit the faculty page as needed, just like a normal Omni CMS page. Once satisfied, “Publish” the page.

Override PeopleSoft Faculty Feed

The faculty feed data from PeopleSoft might have inaccuracies. If you find a significant error that should be fixed in PeopleSoft and the web page, contact Human Resources. Some inaccuracies might be due to field character limits. For web profile-only edits, follow the steps below: 

1. Access the Desired Faculty Page 

  • Open the faculty page you wish to modify in Omni CMS 

2. Access MULTIEDIT 

  • Click on the “MULTIEDIT” button (top right).

3. Override Data: 

  • Manually adjust only the field(s) you want to override. 
  • Check the “Override External Faculty Details” option.

            Overide check option 

4. Publishing: Click “Publish” to update the page.
