This articles covers information and instructions for Faculty Search Administrators using the "Position Settings" tab in Faculty Search Administration to set up custom position types and control permissions for using comments and tags in the program, as well as setting a specific person who will be emailed when changes are made to the details of a position, such as the description, start date, or status.
Setting Up Comments and Tags:
Position Change Emails:
Position Categories: From the "Position Settings" tab of the Administration page, users can create positions in any of four categories:
Position Types: We provide you with default position types within each respective category, but you can customize these position types by editing the defaults or adding new position types within each category.
For instance, within the position category of "Faculty," a user may create the position types of "Full Time Faculty," and "Part Time Faculty," and within the category of Staff, a user may create the position types of "Administrative Staff," and "Academic Staff," and so on.
See the table and image below for examples.
Note: Two position types cannot have the same name, even if they have different categories.
