Configure Legacy Vitas - Faculty

Legacy Vitas in Faculty Activity Reporting (FAR, Faculty180) are used by faculty members to generate their CVs. The standard CV is the default Vita template. By default, a CV displays all sections that have been created by the institution, and the activities within each section. Additional Vita templates can be configured for multiple unit levels and can be built hierarchically, beginning with the highest institutional level and then for subunits (colleges, departments, and more). This article explains how to construct a Vita using Legacy Vitas.

 

Legacy Vitas Options

The following options are available for vitas:

  • Allow automatic display of new activities on vita: Specify if new activities will automatically display on vita.
  • Show Photo on Vita: Specify if photo will display on  vita. To select a photo, click Profile on the Faculty menu, then click Personal Information.
  • Show Empty Sections: Specify if sections that do not contain any data should display on vita.
  • Hide Vita Name: Specify if the vita name should display on the vita.
  • Hide Attachments on Vita: Specify if links to attachments should be visible or hidden.

Biosketches are similar to vitas. However, some sections are required to be included in a biosketch and cannot be changed, as this could make the biosketch out of compliance with the granting agency's guidelines. Within a section, faculty members can select which items to display in the selected biosketch. In addition, date ranges for biosketches are typically locked to comply with the granting agency's guidelines.
