The Candidate Experience of an Interfolio Review, Promotion & Tenure Review
We have created a secure, user friendly interface tha allows candidates to quickly and easily assemble a packet of materials in support of their candidacy and submit these materials online where they can be accessed by the committees, offices, or individuals hearing the candidate's case.
When administrative users create an RPT case for a candidate, they are also creating the page where the candidate will go to assemble their review packet. The page lists the required documents, materias, and forms, as well as due dates and instructions for assembling the candidate's packet.
The following article explains the candidate's experience of a Interfolio Review, Promotion, & Tenure review.
When a case is created for a candidate, they will receive an email notifying them that a review has been initiated on their behalf, and prompting them to log in and begin working on their packet of materials to be submitted via Review, Promotion, & Tenure.
Accessing their packet
Once logged in, the candidate will select "Your packets" from the screen to left
The Candidate Packet Overview
The candidate will see an "Overview" page listing the required materials and forms you will need to add to your packet.
The candidate will click "Edit Packet" to begin work on their packet
The candidate can click "View Packet Instructions" in the upper right corner of the page to view any instructions provided by your institution for assembling your packet
Their packet will likely be divided into sections, each with a list of materials to upload in order to complete each section.
If a due date has been set, the candidate will also see the due date for each section. Each section of the packet can be submitted once all requirements for the section have been met.
Note that individual packet sections can have unique due dates.
If enabled by an administrator, the candidate may also be able to add sections to the packet. If this feature is enabled, they will see an "Add Section" button.
Satisfying Application Requirements
Candidates will see each packet section with the application requirements listed below them. The packet section will be labeled "Incomplete" until all required documents or forms have been submitted for the packet section.
When a requirement is completed, a check mark will appear next to the requirement. Sections are also marked off as they are completed.
Form requirements are marked "View" and will be marked off as the candidate completes them.
Review and Submit Packet
Candidates click "Review and Submit" when they are ready to submit their packet, or a portion of it.
If a packet has sections with separate due dates, the candidate can submit each section individually once all required materials are uploaded for the section.
After clicking "Review and Submit," the candidate is presented with a list of completed sections and can choose which sections to submit.
The candidate can click "Preview" to see how the packet sections they are submitting will look upon submission.
