An overview of the Staff Portal

The Staff Portal is a new web-based service aimed at staff with information provided by staff. It is based around building Communities which are groups of staff who wish to share, publish or receive information eg Research.

The Staff Portal contains a number of different information sections. These are:

University information

This section gives access to University wide Community information.

Your Communities

This section displays your Community information for your job and for any Communities your have subscribed to. There is also a link to a page which displays all the Communities in the University. There are two communities of special interest to UPC staff:

Search the Intranet

This allows you to search for people and documents on the Staff Portal.

There will also be a Latest News section that will be used to display the latest news from around the University.

Directory information

This section allows you to update/check and display your Personal details eg name, title etc.
You can also update your Personal Professional Pages. This enables staff to enter information about their research areas,
professional membership, teaching interests, journals published etc.

There is a Staff Portal toolbar across the top that allows you to access the following tools and information:

  • Outlook Web Access - Access your Outlook email, calendar, contacts etc.
  • Admin - Access online tools to update your Personal details eg contact number
  • Intranet Tools - This section allows you to join/leave a Community and also manage information if you are an Community Author or Community Owner
  • Extranet - This provides a link to the University Extranet site
