Show in My Penn Details:
If you select the checkbox:

Show as My Search Result
If you choose this option by selecting the radio button, the entry becomes the single piece of information that appears in the brief listing first returned in response to an Online Directory search by authorized Penn users.

Email address:
This column provides information about your email address. If an email entry has been provided from an authoritative source, such as a major campus email server, you may choose whether to display that email address. You may also display up to two additional entries. The length limit for this field is 100 characters.

Note: Only the email information that you choose to display will be searchable, according to the settings you have chosen. For example, if you choose to display an email address only in the Penn view, it will not be located in a search unless someone logs in to access the Penn view.

Comment:
If a white text field appears in this column, you have the option of attaching a comment to your entry in the Online Directory. You may wish to use this feature to direct viewers on how best to contact you:

valcamp@sas.upenn.edu Send Penn-related email here
valerie.campbell@mendelpeas.com Send Mendel project email here

The length limit for this field is 40 characters, including spaces. 

Note:  While the Online Directory can accommodate comments, other campus information sources may not; if information is shared with the Directory from an authoritative source (such as the Registrar's Office or Human Resources), no comments may be added.

Source:

Cancel:
Clicking this button will close the blue information table without making any changes to the Online Directory. This applies only to the active window and will not cancel any other previous changes submitted during this session.
