This page describes for web editors in the School of Pharmacy how people listings are handled in a website built by the Office of Communications.

For a microsite

People listings for a microsite on can be handled like the people listing examples shown on Format tables using stylesheet classes. Let us know at Website and Communications Support which style you prefer and we’ll help you get started.

For all other School of Pharmacy sites

The Office of Communications manages people listings that appear at the following locations:

The School of Pharmacy Web Advisory Committee manages people listings that appear in People sections of our sites. For example:

People listings on these sites appear with all of the following:

  • Pages listing groups of people

  • Each person has his or her own page

People information is shared among these sites. For example, a Department of Pharmaceutical Chemistry faculty member is listed on as well as

Person listing guidelines

  • How to specify titles and admin roles for both faculty and staff members.

  • Faculty members:

    • A headshot photo is required, minimum of 1,000 pixels in width.

    • If a lab website exists, include it in the Miscellaneous Links section—not in the Affiliations section.

    • Do not upload curriculum vitae in PDF format since it is more difficult to make accessible. Instead, ensure that his or her profile is current at UCSF Profiles. This page automatically links to that page.

  • Staff members:

    • A headshot photo is recommended but optional, minimum of 1,000 pixels in width.

Create a person listing

Only department editors and system administrators can create a person listing:

  1. Log in to

  2. Select Content → Add Content → UCSF Person from the dark gray menu bar at the top of the page, then enter that person’s UCSF email address as it is shown in

    If all goes well, that person’s profile page opens for editing. Complete all sections as thoroughly as possible, then select the Save button. The new page should now be available to unauthenticated visitors..

    However, if you encounter an error “LDAP entry does not allow release for [email address],” ask that person to:

    1. Visit
    2. Select the Edit My Record button in the top right corner.
    3. Ensure that privacy settings for record visibility and email address are set to Public rather than UCSF Only or Private.
    4. Select the Save Changes button.

    Wait at least 24 hours after that person changed their record, then try creating the person listing again. If it still does not work, let us know at Website and Communications Support.

Change a person listing

Only department editors and system administrators can change a person listing:

Find, edit, and save the person listing. Your changes are expected to be visible to unauthenticated visitors:

  • On no later than one hour.

  • On department sites or program sites no later than two hours.

Request a manual update to a person listing

Changes to faculty profile data on UCSF Profiles or to person data in the PeopleConnect system are automatically reflected in our website after eight days. If you want our website to reflect the changes sooner, you can submit a request manually:

  1. Wait at least 24 hours since the change in question was made to UCSF Profiles or PeopleConnect.
  2. Log in to, then find the person’s profile page.
  3. Select the horizontal tab called EDS/Profiles Update. After a few seconds, the page reloads, and system messages appear informing you of the results of the request.
