When uploading a photo, I am receiving a message saying that the file size is too large. Why?
The max size for photos in the Directory is 300k. If you need assistance shrinking the file size of your photo, please see the instructions here: www2.cortland.edu/offices/publications/big/photography/index.dot#resizing-your-image
I do not show up in the online directory. Why?
The directory is impacted by payroll. Many employees — such as adjunct faculty or others whose contracts are based per semester or academic year — become inactive in the directory during non-teaching times. If this applies to you, your name automatically will appear in the directory again once your period of obligation resumes.
My last name has changed, but I am unable to change it in the directory. How do I change my last name?
The online directory always uses the last name provided by the Human Resources Office. If you have had a legal name change you must notify the Human Resources Office at 607-753-2302 or email@example.com of the change and then it will be automatically updated in the online directory.
My profile strength is low. How can I increase it?
Your profile strength directly relates to searchable information you've provided about yourself in the directory. The more data you add about yourself, the more easily searchable you are. Populate all email address fields, phone numbers and additional information to increase your profile strength.

I am a faculty member and would like to include my publications, personal website, degrees, awards, etc. How can I include these on my profile?
You can always include these in the additional information section.
I do not want a certain field to be visible to students, but I don't have an option to change this. Why?
There are some fields such as name, primary department and primary title that are required by the university to be visible to everyone.
How can emeriti or retirees edit their directory information?
Emeriti and employees who retired in 2010 or later may log into myRedDragon and navigate to the Faculty/Staff tab. Once there, select the "Edit/Update Your Directory Information" link located under the “About Me” section. Individuals who retired before 2010 will not have access to myRedDragon, since it was introduced after their retirement date. Those individuals should contact Human Resources at 607-753-2302 or email@example.com so their directory entry may be updated manually.
I have a suggestion for improvements to the online directory. Who do I talk to about it?
You can submit any suggestions or feedback on our feedback form, and we will get back to you as soon as possible.
