Send a Message with Attached Files to Any Institutional User and Allow/Request a Response

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

Users can indicate where the response should appear in the case when it is received.

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.
