The contact supplement is a great way to display employee biographies. It's more limited than an employee record widget for homepages, but is still quite useful. The nice thing about the contact widget is that if you have a contact / employee under two different offices, you only need to create ONE contact supplement. It can be shared on all pages.

As with all supplements, please be sure to put your office name at the beginning of the title, with a 'pipe' separating it from the title you give your supplement. For example, the web services office would name a widget like this: Web Services | Quick Links. Only the words 'Quick Links' will appear on your page.
