University Councils and Committees
Page tree


It is useful to provide the charge and and information about the scope of this project on the main (or "parent") page as it serves as a reference point for members and others to understand why a group was formed and what it seeks/sought to achieve. 

Page Layout Notes:

From this point, you may wish to insert a Children Display macro which will automatically display sub (or "child") pages as they are created (as displayed below in orange hyperlinks). Examples of common child pages include membership, agendas/minutes, and supplemental resources/materials. Please note that for pages located within one homepage (such as University Councils and Committees), you cannot have multiple pages with the same name (ie, "minutes"), so you will want to specify the page with the affiliated group (ie, "XYZ Committee Minutes," "XYZ Committee Membership," etc.). 

To add a Children Display macro, while in editing mode, find the + sign along the banner at the top of the page and from it, select "other macros" at the bottom of the list. This will bring up a menu with all macros listed in alphabetical order, and you can find Children Display in this list or by typing it into the search bar. 

Once the macro has been added into your draft page, you can edit how it will appear by selecting it and choosing "Edit." One useful feature is called Depth of Descendants, whereby you can choose how many layers of subpages and sub-sub pages you wish to see on the parent page. The default is 1  (just seeing the subpage), but if a subpage has a subpage and you wish to see that up front, you can adjust this to "2" and it will show the different layers! This is helpful if you wish to have, for example, a subpage called  "committee name-minutes and agendas" and sub-subpages for "committee name-minutes" and "committee name-agendas."

Please note that adding the Children Display macro does not create the actual child/subpages; it only allows the ability to see them from the parent page once the pages are created. To create child/subpages, from the page you are on, go to the orange ribbon at the top of the page (to the left of the search bar) and select "Create."
