By creating a new contact that has staff member name, position, label, and form of communication either email or/and phone. We use labels to distribute where the contacts display throughout the site.

Headshot photos should be portrait orientation.
The tool is going to crop and resize images for responsive design, so before uploading the headshots, crop out areas with lots of space around the face area such as background or even chest and torso.

The staff member can belong to multiple groups, select all that apply. For example, if someone should be displayed in ‘City Staff’ AND ‘Administration Staff’ you should select both groups. This would also be the case if someone should be displayed in the elected ‘Elected Official’ or ‘Council’ group.
By creating group categories we are able to distribute where the contacts display throughout the site. This is commonly used for lists for specific departments such as ‘Administration Staff’ to list the employees that make up that department. If you have already created a group category please skip to the “Create a contact” or “Display a list of contacts on a web page” section.
