A Signature profile is the instrument Signature uses to share information about you with other applications. Having multiple profiles gives you the flexibility to share different kinds of information about yourself depending on the context in which it will be shown. For example, many of our faculty members fulfill multiple roles at the College. A faculty member might be a care provider but also an educator and a researcher. As such, s/he might appear on a variety of Web pages. The faculty member may want to present different attributes about her/himself depending on the role that is the focus on that page. Using different Signature profiles allows the faculty member to create these different views of her/himself.
