Create and Edit Committee Forms

Unit Administrators in Review, Promotion & Tenure (RPT) can create, edit, delete and duplicate forms and questions for committee members to use within a case, and can assign committee forms to templates and cases. Committee forms are created from the Administration section of RPT.

 

Create Committee Form

1. Navigate to Add Form under Administration

Navigation: Administration > Committee Forms > Add Form

  1. Click Administration under Review, Promotion & Tenure (RPT) on the navigation menu.
    Review, Promotion & Tenure
  2. Click the Committee Forms tab on the left-hand side.
    Committee Forms selected

    This opens a screen from which it is possible to create, edit, duplicate, and delete forms. A Unit Administrator should see committee forms associated with all units to which they have access.

     
  3. Click the Add Form button.

    Sometimes it may be best to edit a form using the Options dropdown on the right. The ability to duplicate a form once it has been created is a powerful and time saving feature. For example, a form can be created at one unit and then duplicated and customized for the purposes of other units.
