Adding and Managing Case Materials

Administrators and Committee Managers in Interfolio Review, Promotion & Tenure can add materials to a case, including candidate documents, committee documents, and external evaluations. It is possible to upload most popular document formats, as well as links to videos and web pages.

Administrators and Committee Managers may also set permissions for viewing and downloading case materials, and set the packet section in which materials will appear on the case page.

It is also possible for Administrators and Committee Managers to share packet materials with Committee Members or candidates. Note that external evaluations cannot be shared with the candidate.

This article explains how to add and manage materials from the case page.

Adding materials:

On the "Case Materials" tab of the case page, find the section where you want to add materials and click "Add File" to the right of the page

To add a document to a section, click "Add File"
Upload document files:

Click to browse and upload files, or drag and drop.

We accept .pdf, .doc, .docx, .xls, .xlsx, .txt, .ppt, .pptx, and .html files. You can also link to videos and web pages.

Note that you can now include files from a previous review of the candidate.

Enter a name for the document and a description of the kind or category, select your file, and click "Save"  
Uploading files from a previous review:

RPT administrators setting up a case for a faculty member can access and add documents from a previous review for that same faculty member.

If there are previous cases associated with the candidate, the admin will see a “Previous Reviews” tab and have the option to add a file from a previous case.

RPT administrators searching for previous reviews will not see cases for which they are recused.

After selecting a previous case:

  • The admin sees all file names from that previous review for inclusion in the upcoming review listed as:
    • Artifact Name
    • Section
  • The admin can search the list of applicant media from the previous packet by name or the packet section name.
  • The admin can then select and copy one or more applicant files from the previous packet to the current packet requirement.
  • The admin has an option to select all documents listed.

RPT Administrator selecting documents from a previous review for a future review will not see External Evaluations / candidate attachments as available artifacts.

Candidate Side: If the candidate has been notified of their case, when an RPT Admin or CM adds a new artifact to the candidate requirement section, they will get an alert notice that tells them the file will be visible to the candidate and asks them to confirm they want it added. If user selects yes, then the file will be added to the packet.

Add and move materials to a Candidate Requirement Section (adding required documents on behalf of candidate):
Administrators can add required documents on behalf of candidate:

An administrator can upload a document as a fulfillment to a requirement on behalf of a candidate. These documents are added to the candidate’s dossier.

Once a document is moved or added to the Candidate Documents section on the candidate packet, it cannot be moved out of that section.

The name of the person who added each document displays on the case page of a candidate:

We now display the name of the individual responsible for adding an artifact to a packet on the case page of a candidate.

Each entry displays the name, date: Month, Date Year (e.g. Nov 13, 2018)

Note: We have moved this information from the document edit window and placed it beside the document on the case page of the candidate.

Committee managers and administrators can use drag-n-drop to move candidate required documents:
  • User can use drag-n-drop functionality to rearrange packet media
  • User can move one or more fulfillments (required documents) from one requirement to another
  • User can reorder fulfillments within the same requirement
  • User can move one or more packet attachments from one internal section to another
  • User can reorder packet attachments within the same internal section
Administrators (and applicants) can reassign an uploaded document that satisfies a requirement, to satisfy another requirement in the same packet:

Administrators can move fulfillment from one required document to another in the same packet. Fulfillment can only be moved to and from required document.

Applicant can also move fulfillment from one required document to another, and fulfillments can only be moved to and from required document.

Admin or CM can move internal section document to another internal section:

Admin or CM can move packet section document from one internal section to another.
