Configure Faculty Account Access

Faculty can now select other Faculty Activity Reporting (FAR, Faculty180) users to be a proxy (delegate) user on their account, allowing proxy users to access the CV information and reports for the faculty accounts they are assigned to.


A proxy is similar to emulating another FAR user, but with the following limitations:

  • A proxy user does not have access to the Administration section tab or administrator functions, even if the faculty member for the account they are assigned to has this access.
  • A proxy user does not have access to the evaluations functionality and cannot access dashboard entries related to evaluations.
  • Proxy access expires on a date selected by the faculty member.

The Access Settings feature must be activated for the institution by Interfolio. To activate this feature, please submit a support ticket.
