This tutorial will help you get you acquainted with the features of Acuweb™Profile -- one of ten browser-based apps in our fifth generation suite of tools that make it easier than ever for you to effectively manage and display membership or professional profile information on your website, without the need for any prior web-tech knowledge.
Profile provides an easy way for you to organize, format and display professional and career data for your staff or membership. This information can be used to generate online biographies or resumes, which are especially useful in professional services organizations, where staff qualifications are an essential part of marketing the organization's services.
Any time you select an Acuweb 'app' , the options for that app will appear in the blue sub-nav bar immediately below the main navigation. This method of navigating among your Acuweb apps is consistent across all of your site's tools. You can always click on the name of the app, in the main navigation bar, to return to the starting list-view.
When you choose Acuweb™Profile, you're first presented with a listing of the profile groups that you've established for your site, along with a button at the top that gives you the option of creating a new profile group. (more on creating a profile group here)
In our example, this site has two lists -- one list of attorneys, and a second for general staff. Clicking the 'edit' button for any of these groups allows you to manage the behavior of that profile list.
The four panels within the edit screen give you control over the appearance and functionality of this profile group…
… including where logged-in members will be taken when they've logged in, and where they'll be directed to edit their profiles online, should you wish to give them that option.
The public display settings allow you to manage the appearance of each profile; for example, whether to include email contact info, or offer a particular kind of downloadable pdf of each person's resume.
There is also a panel that allows you to decide in what order you wish to display data fields for public display of your staff or member data; and how you wish to display public search options, if at all.
Back on the Profiles navigation bar, the blue 'locations' tab allows you to set up master location data, if your organization has multiple offices …
… so that you only need to update such location information in one place -- convenient of your company relocates an office, and you don't want to have to edit the professional resumes of all employees at that location.
On the image panel you can add an image of the employee your profiling, simply select their image on your desktop and save changes.
The blue 'expertise' tab allows you to set up any number of professional areas, departments or divisions, to which you can assign each staff person or member. Clicking the 'edit' button for any area of expertise . . .
. . . Brings you to an easy-to-use editing window, where a description of each area of expertise can be entered.
Now that we've talked about the various functional controls of Profile, let's take a look at how Profile does a great job of formatting and displaying all that information.
Here, you can see Profiles output in an actual Acuweb website for a law firm. Note that Profile automatically generates this directory, including links (in red) to each attorney's profile; additional links to their social media pages, as applicable; and creates the icon-links to each attorney's email and v-card.
When you click on the attorney's name, you're taken to the Profile page, also formatted and displayed automatically by Acuweb™Profile. Here, practice areas and office information are pulled from the Profile database, as is the detailed profile narrative for this individual, along with any relevant social media icon-links.
Here, for comparison, is Profile handling the same chores on a different Acuweb website; as you can see, the organization and styling of the profile output is vastly different, and is a good example of the versatility and power you'll find in Acuweb™Profile.
