What Is It?

Departmental designated Phonebook Contacts can update employee affiliations, titles, and phone numbers for their respective departments by using the PbUpdate application. This application is available only to designated department Phonebook Contacts.

Affiliations provide faculty, staff, students, and external guests with access to necessary services. Faculty, staff, and student affiliations are created as part of the onboarding process. Affiliations expire when the person is no longer associated with the university. External Affiliations need to be created manually.
