Read and Evaluate Case Packet Materials Using the Materials Viewer

ByCommittee Promotion & Tenure users can read and annotate case packet materials online using our built-in materials viewer.

Promotion reviews can involve hundreds of pages of packet materials. Our viewer allows committee members to load these materials into their browser, making it convenient to access all materials in one centralized location with no paper involved (unless of course your institution allows downloading and you want to download and print documents).

Committee members can also add annotations to materials in a candidate’s file, and export those annotations in a PDF file for offline access. This makes it easy to highlight the most important parts of a packet and track and revisit thoughts when evaluating materials.
