Add a New Administrative Unit

Unit Administrators can easily recreate an institution's hierarchy within Interfolio Review, Promotion & Tenure (RPT). The program allows Unit Administrators to create a parent organizational unit and then add lower level organizational units below it. Unit Administrators can add a unit at any point in the organizational hierarchy. This article explains how to add a unit, such as a college, school, or department, to Interfolio RPT.


Unit Administrators can set up Interfolio RPT to exactly reflect the real life organizational hierarchy of their institution by creating organizational units and adding lower organizational units beneath them. For example, a university might be the highest organizational unit, and that unit would in turn contain as many lower units as necessary, such as a colleges, schools, individual departments, divisions within departments, and more. Any structure is possible and can be easily created from within the program.
