Description

Hi there - wondering if it would be possible to put some additional information on the group member list page, e.g. college, title, academic interests? In large groups such as Digital Humanities Initiative people are very unlikely to click to visit all the individual member pages. So this would really help group members get to know one another. Thanks!

Are others happy with the proposed additions?
- College
- Title
- Academic Interests

A few thoughts:
1) Should this only apply on the group members list, or to all member directories?
2) Some people's Academic Interests can be longish. OK to truncate?
3) More info can be good but too much is worse than not enough.

Should this only apply on the group members list, or to all member directories?

Some people's Academic Interests can be longish. OK to truncate?

Yes, as long as it's clear that we've cut off the description (ie., we'll need something like [...] or a link with "more"

More info can be good but too much is worse than not enough.

Good point and something to keep in mind here.

Hi - thanks so much for working on this! The title field looks like it could potentially be a longish one too and might need to be trunc'd if people get carried away there. The goal would be to provide just enough info to let members identify people they might be interested in - they can always click through for more.

I am interpreting "I think it would be useful on all group directories." as "I think it would be useful on all member directories.", as my question was about member directories outside of groups. Please correct me if I'm wrong.

#6 Updated by Matt Gold about 8 years ago

Right. I think the info should be on all group AND all member directories. Do you agree?

Hi there, thanks so much! I'm happy to take a look, if you'd like - but would need the link (and access permissions?) for cdev...
