This combination of fields allows multiple points of contact for an individual with the ability to provide a custom label for each (e.g. separate contact information for home, work, lab, etc.).
A short biography or description should be provided as it will be used on teaser displays and the default for SEO meta descriptions.
You can create relationships to taxonomy terms. Commonly used to organize and classify content behind the scenes.
You can reference existing (autocomplete) or create new tags by typing comma-separate terms.
Additionally, to view existing tags, go to /admin/structure/taxonomy/manage/tags/overview.
You can select Hide on lists if you don’t wish to display the particular person people displays throughout the website. This is helpful if an article author is added to the website that should not otherwise be displayed on the website.
Sticky at top of lists can be used to place an individual above other people on name ordered lists.
