  3. When you are looking at a profiles lisitng page, navigate to and click on the 'Actions' drop down menu on the editing toolbar.
  4. From the 'Actions' drop down, select 'Add remote content'

  6. Paste the link that you have copied into the field, and then click 'Continue'. You will be taken to a new screen that confirms the profile you are adding to your Haiku website remotely, as well as providing you with some options for categorisation.
  7. Using the form, categorise the profile using the available options, so that the profile will appear in the location that you want it to on your website.

You can either wait until the next day to see the publications, as they will be pulled onto your website in the regular nightly synchronisation with Symplectic, or if you require the publications to be pulled into your website immediately, then you can use the 'Sync publications' option from the 'Actions' menu on the edit bar.

      You will then see the publication will return a response, please be aware, if the profile has a large amount of publications associated with it, it may take up to a few minutes to sync.
