Update Alumni Record


Do-It-Yourself Record Update Process

The process to update your Alumni Data Record on our All Vocational Alumni Website has been greatly improved.  You now have the resources on our website to ADD and UPDATE your own Alumni Data to fix whatever needs to be updated such as address, email, phone, etc. You can literally update any of the database fields with the exception of photo links.  The issue of formatting and linking photos for your record requires site programming by the webmaster.  In case you have inadvertenty added more than one database record for your Alumni Data, you also now have the ability to DELETE the extra outdated data records.

This means every Minneapolis Vocational Alumni, Class Friend or Teacher at Vocational can now enter and edit their own Alumni record and keep it current.


Step One

Locate Your Alumni Database "RECORD" Number.  You find your record number by search ing the database on your last name.  When you find your last name, you will be presented with the contents of the existing Alumni record.  At the bottom of the Alumni record, you will find the RECORD number.  This is the number you need for Step Two.  The following three graphic images illustrate the procee.

Step Three

If you have entered a valid existing record number, you will be taken to your Alumni data record where you can Update your Alumni Database "RECORD."  The three option buttons AFTER you have Updated your database information is to EDIT, EXIT or DELETE.  If you are deleting a duplicate record, you will see the warning message as your mouse hovers over the button.  Deleted records cannot be restored except by going and re-entering your Alumni Data using the ADD Alumni Data Form.  Edited or deleted Alumni records are archived for future reference if needed in a separate archive database.
