Share Case Materials with Committee Members and Request/Allow a Response

Administrators and Committee Managers can share packet materials and other documents with members of any committee involved the workflow of a case, and with individual Interfolio Review, Promotion, & Tenure users at an institution.

Sharing case materials and documents is useful, for instance, for sending committee recommendations to members of a committee assigned to previous steps in the workflow (rather than sending the case back or emailing outside of the system).

Sharing with other Review, Promotion, & Tenure users also means that it is possible to send a portion of a case to a person who should not see the entire case. For example, you can send specific documents to academic leaders, such as the provost, without making that person a Committee Member of one of the committees in the workflow of the case. Because all file sharing is recorded in the case Activity Log, you will always have a record of who, what and when case materials were shared

Admins and Committee Managers can send a message, with documents attached, to committees and Review, Promotion, & Tenure users, and can request that the recipient upload a file in response.

When files are shared with a Committee Member or individual, the recipient will be notified by email and prompted to log in to their Interfolio account to view the shared files.

Important: Users concerned about privacy and confidentiality issues should rest assured that:

  • Only Administrators and Committee Managers of the current case can share files.
  • It is difficult to accidentally share files.
  • As with all activity in the system, the case Activity Log will record and document when files are shared.
  • During the implementation process, Client Success Managers will work with institutions to ensure that faculty and staff receive comprehensive training on Review, Promotion, & Tenure and that institutional policies are well documented and understood.
