Adding Co-Author 'Role' to Scholarly Contributions and Displaying it on the Vita
Adding the "Role" field to the Co-Authors Section
If you would like to add this field functionality to your instance of Faculty180, than please have your institutional administrator submit a ticket to email@example.com.
For the Scholarly Contributions Activity sub-types, Book, Chapters, Journal Publication, etc.) that have authors and potentially, editor roles, than we recommend that the column for ‘Role’ be added and configured to the co-author table.
Below are two images to demonstrate the difference before and after the change has been added.

How to Display Role Information on the Vita
If the citation is one that identifies the ‘Editor’, then that notation will pull from the ‘Role’ column appropriately.
Otherwise, the notation on the vita template will have ‘counts’. The number of (whatever is in the drop down as options).
To show role counts on the Vita
- Roles must be added to subtypes
- You must have permissions to access the vita template
Currently, there is no report that lists the number of users in this ‘role’ type specific to an activity or as a whole.
