Add New Users - Faculty Search
Committee Managers and Administrators can add users to Interfolio Faculty Search. All potential search committee members must be added as Interfolio users before they are able to review applicants.
Users are managed from the Users & Units page
To access Users & Units, click "Manage" on your account dashboard and select "Users & Groups"
-Or- click "User & Group Management" in the right hand navigation bar that appears on most screens in the program
Click the "Add User" button to the right of the Users & Units page
Fill out the "Add User" form with the user's name and email address
You can choose to add an additional message to the new user. Click preview to see how the message will appear in the inbox of the user
Preview and and click "Send" when you are ready
Important: You can resend this invitation email at any time. For more information see the article Resend the Interfolio Faculty Search Invitation Email.
Add the new user to one or more units, and assign them roles in each unit
When a user is added, the "Edit User" window opens where you can add the user to one or more units, and set their role in each unit to which they are added.
By default, new users are added to the program with the role of Evaluator, however, an administrative user can grant any user a role equal to or lesser than their own role in any unit they administer.
For instance, an Administrator in Faculty Search can add a user to the program and assign that user the role of Administrator or Committee Manager for any of the units in their organizational hierarchy. Committee Managers can add a user to the program, and grant that user the role of Committee Manager or Evaluator in any administrative unit for which they serve as a Committee Manager, but cannot add a user and make them an Administrator.
Assign the user to a unit from the dropdown list
Select a role for the user and click "Add"
If necessary, add the user to another unit and assign them a role in the new unit to which they are added
In the example below, the user has been added as an Administrator with EEO access in the College of Dentistry, but they can be added to as many units as necessary and assigned a different role in each.
