New Guide: Staff Administration System

The Staff Administration System takes advantage of Drupal's Custom Content Types and the Views Module to provide a simple and flexible system for organizing and displaying staff information on your website. 

A custom content type contains unique fields for storing information about the staff. Custom views are used to display your staff in a variety of ways.

This system has many advantages over simple HTML pages. Content can be created once, stored in one place, but can be displayed in many different ways at the same time. For example, you can create staff lists, contact sheets, individual profiles, RSS feeds.

Staff profiles can be linked to related information on your website.
