Administration Settings Page in Interfolio Faculty Search
From the "Administration" page of Faculty Search, Administrators can control settings for their assigned unit(s), and Committee Managers can control settings and permissions for the positions they manage.
Depending on their administrative privileges, from the "Administration" page, users can:
- Create and edit position and application statuses
- Create message templates to send to applicants when the status of a position or application changes
- Create and and manage EEO statements
- Create and manage application forms (including EEO forms)
- Set communication settings to enable or disable comments and tags
The tabs that appear on the "Administation" page are determined by your level of access in the program. Not all tabs listed below will appear for all users.
The name of the unit or position you are viewing is displayed in the "Settings for" dropdown.
Any changes you make to the settings on the "Administration" page will be applied to the unit or position listed here.
Click the drop-down if you need to view and control settings for a different unit or position.
From the "Statuses" tab of the Administration page, you can create and manage:
- Position Statuses: Labels that describe the current state of the selection process, for example, “Accepting Applications”
- Application Statuses: Labels that describe the current state of the applicant in the review process, for example, “Longlist” or “No Further Consideration”
From the "Message Templates" tab you can create and manage message templates to send customized messages to applicants when the status of a position or application changes. You can set the conditions when the message will be sent, and you can edit and confirm messages before sending them.
See here for more information on how to set up applicant notification message templates.
From the "Position Settings" tab, Administrators can crate positions in any of four categories, and organize positions by editing the default types or creating custom position types within those categories.
To learn more, read about Using Custom Position Types.
From this tab users can set whether or not reviewers can comment and assign tags to applications. Administrators can require approval for new positions, set who to notify when a position changes, and set the sender name and "reply-to" address for email messages.

Disposition codes are short descriptions for why applicants did not make it to the next step of the hiring process. Learn more about disposition codes and see examples.
Interfolio provides a public link to a list of all the published positions available at your institution. You can use this link to advertise the positions available on your institutional website or other places where you provide a list of available positions. Positions set as Private will not be made available via this link.
From this tab, users can also activate an RSS feed listing their positions feed. Once activated, a URL for the RSS will become available.
