Add a New Administrative Unit

Administrators can easily recreate an institution's hierarchy within Interfolio Promotion & Tenure. The program allows Administrators to create a parent organizational unit and then add lower level organizational units below it. Administrators can add a unit at any point in the organizational hierarchy. This article explains how to add a unit, such as a college, school, or department, to Interfolio Promotion & Tenure.

Administrators can set up Interfolio RPT to exactly reflect the real-life organizational hierarchy of their institution by creating organizational units and adding lower organizational units beneath them. For example, a university might be the highest organizational unit, and that unit would in turn contain as many lower units as necessary, such as a colleges, schools, individual departments, divisions within departments, etc. Any structure is possible and can be easily created from within the program.

Select "Users and Groups" under the Review, Promotion & Tenure section of the left hand navigation menu

On your Promotion & Tenure dashboard, click "Manage," and select "Users and Groups" from the dropdown menu

Click the "Units" tab
