How to Update Information on the Online Directory
So, you moved. Maybe you changed offices. Maybe your department moved buildings. It happens, and it’s always a busy time. Maybe you just got a new cellphone number. Whatever your changes were, did you remember to update your information in the online directory? You should; here’s why.
The online directory serves as a portal to find services, departments and people. In order to keep all information current on the online directory, employees can – and are encouraged to – manually change their information through FlashLine.
If you want to know what your directory information looks like currently, just search the directory at the top of FlashLine or www.kent.edu. If your information needs to be updated, these step-by-step directions will walk you through the process.
First, log in to FlashLine and select Employee. After you have selected Employee, click Dashboard.
Under the Top Employee Resources section, select Employee Profile Dashboard. Then select My Profile.
Once you are in My Profile, click on More Personal Information. This will take you to a page with links to everything you can change. Open the link in the section you would like to edit, and when you are finished, click submit.
Employees can update additional titles, nicknames, additional department, five-is-free number, webpage or site, campus building, campus room, campus phone number, fax number, cell number and email type (other than the university email address).
Employees cannot modify name, job title, email address, department or campus. This restricted information can be changed by filling out a request form for Human Resources.
The change of restricted information form can be found at www.kent.edu/sites/default/files/file/change-of-personal-information.pdf.
