SHSU Directory Improvements

Over the last year, we had an increased number of misdirected emails due to multiple people having similar names. We have updated the campus email directory to include additional information to aid in locating the appropriate recipient. The “Title” column is populated with additional descriptors that identify the individual’s primary status with the university (e.g. your assigned title, alumni, student worker, student, etc).

Directory1

The directory is what comes up when you select the “To…” button to display names while drafting an email.

Previously, the title column was blank for non-faculty/staff, which led to the email sometimes being sent to an unintended recipient. For example, there is more than one person in the directory named Kenneth or Kenny Ray. One is a student and the other is the IT Managed Applications Manager. Prior to the update, you would not know which listing was for the appropriate Kenneth Ray.
