Like the current StanfordWho, the updated StanfordWho lets you add a link on a Stanford webpage that goes directly to a person's StanfordWho listing. You can use this option to avoid displaying static contact information on a webpage, where it can go out of date or be a target of spamming. With the updated StanfordWho, you can also link from a Stanford webpage to the results of a search term such as the name of a department.
When the updated public view is launched on June 21, any current links from a Stanford webpage to a person's listing will go to the updated StanfordWho public view home page. To change these webpage links so that they go directly to a person's StanfordWho listing or to a search term result, follow the instructions on this page.
How to link to a person's StanfordWho listing
You can customize a URL to link directly to a person's listing after June 21. If a user who has not authenticated into the Stanford network clicks on this URL, they will go to the person's public view listing. An authenticated user who clicks this URL will go to the person's more detailed Stanford and Affiliates view listing. In some cases, the authenticated user will first be directed to the public view, where they can click the Log in button to reach the Stanford and Affiliates view.
Use the following URL to link to a person's StanfordWho listing:
- To link via a SUNet ID:
- https://stanford.rimeto.io/profile/[SUNet ID]@stanford.edu
- Example: https://firstname.lastname@example.org
- To link via an email alias:
- Example: https://stanford.rimeto.io/profile/John.Doe@stanford.edu
