Designate a Person to Upload Letters from Multiple Letter Writers (Proxy)
It is common for institutions and letter services to designate one individual to upload recommendation letters on behalf of multiple letter writers. The individuals uploading the letters are referred to as a proxy. Since the proxy is actually uploading the letters, their name and email will be used as the Recommender when creating and sending a letter request.
Note that when a letter is added to an Interfolio-hosted position or sent as part of a delivery, the receiving institution will only see the title of the letter and the letter itself. The recommender’s name and email address that is listed in Interfolio is private.
