Help for Sharing and Receiving Feedback on Dossier Materials
This Interfolio Dossier feature allows users to collect feedback on academic materials and plans for self-presentation of your academic work, research, creative production, teaching, and service to the academic community.
FAQ about Feedback and Sharing
- Comments are restricted to be viewed only between the document owner and also the owner of said comment. You cannot have commenters collaborate.
- If you want to receive feedback on a new version of a document, you must upload it and share that new document with the reviewer.
- Users do not need an Interfolio account to review a document. If the reviewer/commenter does not have an Interfolio account, they must login via the link provided in their email.
- Updating a document (such as a Non-Confidential Letter of Recommendation or a CV) will remove all previous feedback on the old version of the document.

Two Types of Users Who Can Use Sharing and Feedback Feature
1. Dossier Deliver Users
This section is only relevant for users who have paid for their Dossier Deliver account to request, manage, and send their materials and confidential letters.
If you are a Dossier institution user see the section below.
With an active Dossier Deliver account, you can share your Dossier materials (with the exception of the letter of recommendation) and your collections of materials with anyone regardless of whether that person has an Interfolio account.
2. Dossier Institution Users
This section is only relevant for users who have had their account provided directly by an Interfolio client institution.
If you are a Dossier Deliver user who paid for their personal account see the section above.
With your Dossier Institution account you can share individual items and collections of materials stored in your Dossier with other Dossier Institution users at your institution. The person you share with will be able to view those materials online through their browser, within an Interfolio environment, and write comments on them. In order to access the shared document/collection, current Interfolio users will have to sign into their own Dossier account.
You can hold an account of both user types: by having a Dossier Institution AND a Dossier Deliver account.
Document owners can manage their shared materials, including revoking access to individual items and collections and sharing their materials with others by adding to the list of collaborators.
To manage sharing of an item, open the item, and click "Manage Sharing" at the top right of the viewer
This button will only appear on items that are shared. Otherwise, the "Share" button, will appear here.
Click "Revoke access" to take away access from a reviewer/collaborator with whom you have previously shared the item
Click "Undo" to reverse this action and restore a person's access to the item
When managing the sharing of an item that is part of a collection, the document owner must revoke the access to the collection of the reviewer/collaborator whom has access to the item through a shared collection,
This will be noted when you open the "Manage Sharing" window, and will include a link to the shared collection.
