Crashed while activating. Had to delete the folder via ftp to be able to get back to the site.

We’ve designed and developed this plugin for a higher education institution with a considerable number of faculty, staff and students. However, it can also be used in research institutes, k-12 schools with little customization. Highly recommended for organizations wanting pro grade presentation of human assets.
