Best way to implement a 'featured employee' scroller?


Recommended Posts

Good morning everyone!

First post here. I recently started with a new company in a sales/marketing capacity and I'm making some improvements and adding some content to our website, but I'm still very much getting acquainted with Squarespace. 

I'm currently trying to implement a scroller/carousel at the bottom of the Our Team page (not published yet). What I'm envisioning is having our leadership team photos and bios static, but then doing a "Featured Employee" section below it that scrolls through 4-5 employees each week. I've got the placeholders for the leadership team in place, but can't figure out the best way to have a scrolling section that includes a small picture and 3-4 lines of information to the right of it for each non-leadership employee. Ideally, I'd like to to have one image and bio presented at a time, with a carousel that spans the bottom of the page. 

I've tried just making it an image carousel by creating an image including the photo and the bio, but I still can't get only one to show up at a time, they appear blurry, and they end up all clustering or showing 5 across and basically all shifting left then right at the intervals I set the transition to. I've included an example of this with this post to give you an idea of what I'm talking about.

I've considered/messed around with doing a summary carousel, but it seems the only way that would work is if I make a dedicated page for each employee to then showcase in the carousel. I suppose I can do that, but I'd prefer it be a last resort because that could end up being time consuming and cluttering things.

Anyone know of a decent way to create a carousel that features both an image and text together, one at a time?

Wow, this is exactly what I'm looking for! That was crazy fast. Thank you so much!

Quick question about it, is buying a business license necessary if operating a website for a business, or is it meant if for those operating a business that does work on different sites? If I'm only managing the one site for a company, is it fine to just get a standard license? Trying to figure out if this is similar to stock photo licensing where type of usage (personal vs promotional) matters, or if it's literally just the amount of times you can implement it.
