The person can be searched for by his/her first name, last name, maiden name, personal identification number, and user name (log-in name). The users with special access rights are also allowed to search some other databases - an option only available to a few for privacy reasons.

    If you are looking for people on IS from outside of it (https://is.muni.cz/lide), it is only the pages of the students who have allowed the System to make them publicly available and the current employees' ones that are displayed to you.

Provided you want your page to remain accessible to the people outside the System even after you stop working for the school, please click on the option 'I want my page, including the information listed in my Profile tab, to remain publicly accessible even after I stop working for the school.' the path to which is as follows:

    Personal Administration People Change the People application settings Personal Page display mode

    You can find the information on your current settings at the bottom of your Personal Page. These settings also affect the way your Personal Page is displayed at www.muni.cz.

  • 6.I do not like my photograph. I do not want it to be displayed on my personal page. What shall I do?
    You can disable the photograph mode using the following path:

    Personal Administration People .. edit my personal data Select my photograph mode

    However, provided you find something amiss with your photograph, you should have a new one taken since disabling the photograph mode will prevent you from seeing the other IS users' photographs.
    What you should realize, though, is that even if you disable the mode, your photograph will still be displayed to the Office for Studies staff and teachers teaching the courses you have enrolled in for identification purposes.

  • 7.When and where can I have myself photographed?
    You can have yourself photographed every Tuesday and Thursday. For further information, go to https://it.muni.cz/sluzby/fotografovani-osob.

  • 8.Is it possible to upload into the System a photograph I have sent to its administrators?
    Yes, it is, but only in special cases. However, this exception must be approved by the manager of Institute of Computer Science.

    For contact information, please go to https://it.muni.cz/sluzby/fotografovani-osob

  • 9.I cannot see the other IS users' photographs. What is the problem?
    Please make sure you have the photograph mode enabled. To do so, use the following path:

    Personal Administration People .. select photograph mode

    Another cause of the problem may be the fact that your photograph is not stored in the System yet. If this is the case, have yourself photographed as soon as possible, please.

  • 10.Is there any way of protecting my photograph against possible misuse?
    Yes, you can have a watermark of your personal identification number printed on your photograph. Provided you wish to enable the watermark mode, do so in the section the path to which is as follows:

    Personal Administration People .. select photograph mode

    Nevertheless, the likelihood of your photograph being misused is comparatively low since the System administrators constantly monitor the numbers of photographs displayed to individual users. Provided one of them has a large number of photographs displayed, his/her access to them is denied.

  • 11.Are there any rules governing the use of photographs displayed by the Information System?
    The IS users can, after logging into the System, browse other users' photographs. These should be utilized merely for identification purposes inside the System. Any other use of these, their distribution outside the System, and their batch downloading are strictly prohibited.

    The Information System hosts tools that keep track of the numbers of photographs displayed to individual users. Provided it detects a massive download or display of photographs by someone - an indicator of their possible misuse, it will disable the culprit's access to them.

    Violating the aforementioned rules may lead to blocking the violator's access to the IS photographs and make him/her subject to disciplinary proceedings.

  • 12.I would like to make the record of my study results accessible via my Personal Page. What am I supposed to do?
    Under each of your programmes of studies you can find a link to a form enabling you to activate this option and specify which users your study results should be displayed to. Once you change the settings, remember to save them.

  • 14.My Personal Page shows wrong workload, position, office, or telephone information. What am I supposed to do?
    This kind of information is administered via inet.muni.cz. You can apply for a change in it using its Personal Data section.

  • 15.What can I use the My Student section for?
    This section facilitates teachers' and supervisors' work by allowing them to enter their Teacher's Notebook directly from a selected student's Personal Page. Provided you are a teacher, this page lists all of your courses the student is currently enrolled in or was enrolled in in the past. Each of these has a link enabling you to enter its Teacher's Notebook or a section containing detailed information on the student. Provided you are a supervisor, you are also provided with an option to enter the Supervisor section.

      [1] a link available in the Teaching tab to Teacher's Notebook applications

      A tip: Provided you often use Teacher's Notebook applications, you might want to be able to access it using the following shortcut: Each IS page displays your personal identification number (učo) in its upper right-hand corner. This number, when clicked on, takes you to your Personal Page, where you can have the tab titled Teaching displayed by default. As this tab lists all your courses, using the path described above, you can reach a certain course-related application from any IS page in only two clicks.
      To specify the tab you want the System to display by default, please go to the People section and click on 'Change the People application settings'.
