I created a new page in BigTree in the wrong location. How do I move it?

Unfortunately you can't move a page. You'll have to archive it & delete it and then create the page in the correct spot.

The address/URL to the page I just created is really long. How do I fix it?

  • Edit the page in question in the BigTree admin screen.
  • Click on the SEO tab
  • Edit the text on the URL Route line.
  • (Please note: do not use spaces or special characters in your new URL. Use a dash or an underscore if you need to place space between words.)

The Faculty/Staff List of my Interdisciplinary Department doesn't list one of our faculty/staff members.

Email Web Services with the faculty/staff's full name, e-mail address and what interdisciplinary department they should be listed on. We'll add them and let you know when the work has been completed.

My room, phone, title, or department isn't correct in the faculty/staff directory.

Contact Human Resources to have this updated.
