Add/Edit Administrative Rights

Institutions can manage administrative rights directly within Faculty Activity Reporting (FAR, Faculty180). Administrative rights can be modified by unit based on the organizational structure of your institution. This article reviews the administrative levels that can be assigned to faculty members and administrators.


Administrative Rights

Administrative Levels

Types Details
None Has access to their own data.
Report Rights Has access to run reports.
Full Admin Rights Has access to some or all setup options, administrative functions, reports, and other users' accounts.

When a user has limited rights they only have access to the faculty member's menu. Evaluation data for the faculty member is restricted.



The following table describes the roles to be given full administrative rights.


If faculty members and administrators are manually added to FAR, administrative rights can be assigned to them when they are added.

Support accounts for these users can be created at the subunit level, and the users can have reporting rights, Full Administrative Rights, or limited rights.
