Add faculty/staff ‘Office Location’ to directory listing (contact page).
Due to potentially inconsistent entry of this field values, the ideal location is end of the line after phone numbers.
Students have come into the IKBSAS Dean’s office to ask the office number for faculty members. In some instances they have been waiting to speak to a Student Support Assistant for quite some time in our office to find out and office location for a faculty member so that they can speak with them in person. This is causing more students waiting to talk to staff in our office for a minor detail and is frustrating for our assistants and support staff.
The students find the contact directories on the department websites (for example: https://cmps.ok.ubc.ca/about/contact/) however, haven’t realized that the faculty a members name can be clicked on for further details
[Update: Basic proof of concept has been started in dev site. Would need review from UR. Side effect is that it will make directory listings longer overall. -JS/SQ]
[Update 2: Positive feedback from Nov 2019 Webcore meeting. Development to continue. Can proceed to be added to next update of directory plugin.]
[Update 3: Tested in verf and pulled into production Dec 9, 2019. Marked completed. -JS]
