Profile Updates

All LSA People (faculty, staff and students) can now update their own profile content. They do not need access to the AEM author system, nor will they be required to take any training.

  4. If the user identity was successfully verified, the profile edit form will be presented. and you may make changes. If this is not your record, you will get a message saying you are not authorized to edit this information.
