Configure Upload Form

The Upload Form in Faculty Activity Reporting (FAR, Faculty180) is used by administrators to upload institutional data, such as faculty courses and faculty classifications. The Upload Form is then used to Upload data.


When to use the Upload Form

When uploading data to Interfolio FAR, the Upload Form must be used if the indirect method of data transfer is being utilized. Once the Upload Form is configured, the Upload Data feature will be used to upload an institution's data.
