Learn more about system names.
Display Name: Enter the text that will be used to create the button/link in the left navigation.
Keep this text short -- one to three words if possible. Use upper-case and lower-case letters and spaces to make it a readable link.
Examples: “Program Information” or “About Us”
Include Folder Contents in Nav: Select “Yes” if you would like to add a link to the left navigation for this new page.
Include Folder in Breadcrumbs: Select “Yes” if you would like to add the title of this page to the breadcrumbs on the new page.
Folder or Page is Password Protected: If the page needs to be password protected (requires login with Willamette credentials), contact firstname.lastname@example.org.
Selecting “Yes” in this field does NOT password protect the page, it just puts a lock icon in the left navigation.
