Adding People to your site is a great way to feature important individuals in your alumni group on the About Us page. It's also a great way to keep a repository of all past leaders, and keep track of current leaders for your group or your groups alumni association liaison.

To create a person on your site, first click the People button on the left hand side of your site's backend. Once there, you'll see a list of all the people you've currently added to the site. By hovering over a person's name you have the ability to edit or delete that person direct. To add a new person, click the Add New button that appears at the top.

You'll be presented with a series of fields that you can start to fill out, about the person you're looking to create.

Most fields are pretty self-explanatory, and none of them are mandatory, though it should be pointed out that a more complete profile makes for a more interesting person profile on the site.

After you've finished entering in the basics, find the Sub-Groups module, and either select the sub-group that this new person is a part of, or add the sub-group you wish to use to this list.

Groups are helpful for getting your People to appear on the About Us page, something covered here.

The featured image that you choose for the person will be their picture on the About Us page, it's ideal to choose one that is square and at least 100 pixels wide and tall (we have a handy guide on how to resize images here).

Once you're finished, just make sure to click Publish and you're set.

Here is a video that will show you how to add People profiles to your About Page:
