Adding an Individual to the System



  1. Begin by navigating to the Add/Update a Person page.


    Click the Campus Community link.

    Step 1
  2. Click the Add/Update a Person link.

    Step 2
  3. Click the Add a New Value tab.

    Step 3
  4. When adding a new person to the database, the system requests a person ID. You can assign IDs in one of two ways:

    Automatically: If you use automatic ID assignment, the system adds IDs sequentially as you add new people. The system maintains the last assigned ID on the Installation Table - Last ID Assigned page.

    Manually: You enter the IDs, using any system that you choose for the organization. With manual entry, you don't need to assign IDs sequentially. Assigning IDs manually is the only way that you can include alphabetical characters in the IDs.


    To avoid maintaining two different sets of IDs, you should either always assign them manually or always let the system assign them. In this example, you will let the system assign the ID.


    Click the Add button.

    Step 4
  5. Use the Biographical Details page to enter an individual's name and other basic biographical data.
