Create an Application on Behalf of an Applicant
This article explains how Committee Managers and Administrators can create an application on behalf of an applicant in Interfolio Faculty Search.
Select the positions page from the navigation bar
Find the position you are working on and click the title to open the list of applicants for the position
Fill out the "Add New Application" form and click "Add"
The applicant's name now appears in the list of applications
Applicants will receive a standard email after being added
Administrators and Commitee Managers CANNOT fill out forms (EEO or Custom) on behalf of applicants.
Applicants must be notified to complete any form responses, and to do so the application must allow for updates. For more information on how to accomplish this, reference our resources on Messaging Applicants and Creating a Position Status.
Click the applicant's name to open the Applicant Profile page
Scroll down to the "Documents" section and click "Add File"
You can drag & drop or browse to upload document files
Give the document title, and identify the type (cover letter, C.V., etc)
If the file satisfies a requirement, indicate which requirement it satisfies
Click "Add" to upload the document
You can also upload links to Vimeo or Youtube videos and use those to satisfy document requirements of the application.
Select the "Video" tab, give the video a title, add the url of a Youtube or Vimeo video, and add a description
If the video satisfies a requirement, indicate which requirement it satisfies
The video will be added to the application materials
Evaluators can view the video in the materials reader
You can also add links to webpages and use those to satisfy document requirements of the application.
Select the "Webpage" tab, give the webpage a title, add the url and a description of the page
If the webpage satisfies a requirement, indicate which requirement it satisfies
A link to the page will be added to the application materials, and will display to evaluators when they open the materials reader
The link will display in the materials reader
Note: Clicking the link will open the webpage in a new browser tab.
