Configure Profile Form

The Profile Form in Faculty Activity Reporting (FAR, Faculty180) is used by faculty members to input personal data that tends to remain static over time such as contact information, degrees, credentials, and work experience. Faculty members can, generally, update their profile at any time. All profile data can be included on a faculty member's CV, or used in various types of reports.


Customization of this form should be performed at the highest level, such as the university level, and then for the next lower level, colleges, and so on. The data that is collected creates the basis for reporting and other output, such as CVs, institutional reports, accreditation reports, and more.



Institutions can make the following configuration changes to the Profile Form without the assistance of Interfolio:

  • Configure/add custom sections
  • Reorder/hide sections
  • Specify activity classifications
  • Modify section settings
