Read and Evaluate Case Packet Materials Using the Materials Viewer

Interfolio Review, Promotion, & Tenure users can read and annotate case packet materials online using our built-in materials viewer.

Promotion reviews can involve hundreds of pages of packet materials. Our viewer allows committee members to load these materials into their browser, making it convenient to access all materials in one centralized location with no paper involved (unless of course your institution allows downloading and you want to download and print documents).

Committee members can also add annotations to materials in a candidate’s file, and export those annotations in a PDF file for offline access. This makes it easy to highlight the most important parts of a packet and track and revisit thoughts when evaluating materials.  

Select "Cases" from the left hand navigation menu

Click the name of the candidate to open the case page

This displays the list of cases you can review or manage

On the "Case Materials" tab of the case page, click "Read Case" to load all accessible case materials into our document viewer where they can be viewed online

You can also click on the title of a document to open that specific document in the document viewer.
