FACULTY180 Homepage, Navigation Bar, and User Menu
The content in this knowledge base is based upon the standard FACULTY180 environment. Your institution may have made changes to configure the FACULTY180 environment to meet your institution's needs; therefore, the screens in your FACULTY180 environment may differ slightly from the knowledge base. For more information, please contact your FACULTY180 administrator.
If you were a Faculty180 users before release you will notice substantial differences. You may find our document on the Spring 2018 changes useful in familiarizing yourself with all differences.

The Interfolio Institutional Homepage and Navigation Bar
If the image below is not what you see after signing in, you may be at your Interfolio Dossier. You should select your name in the top-right corner and select the desired Institutional Account.
After logging in, and choosing an institutional account, users will see the page that's displayed below. The navigation bar options will vary depending on their permissions and Interfolio products used by the institution. The Interfolio homepage for institutions is the central place for faculty members within interfolio, no matter what product they use.
Relevant action items will be displayed organized in the tables below (more later).
The institutional announcements tool, institutional help, and institutional FAQ have been moved to their own page on the Announcement's & Help Page. There users can access all Faculty180 resources provided by their institution.
The Action Item section displays a list of tasks that need to be performed, such as completing an input form or an evaluation and accepting a co-authored work. In addition, messages that have been generated and sent to you by administrators at your institution also display here. To view the details related to a task or message, simply click the item.
Messages can be deleted by clicking the Delete (X) icon (As of March 30, 2018, this feature has been temporarily removed, and we be re-added to the homepage at a later date).
How action items are organized
- Priority Items: When a user has more than 5 action items, we will present a separate set of Priority Items at the top of the page. Priority Items will be displayed in order first by Due Date, and then by Priority.
- Assigned Items: All action items for a user will appear in the Additional Assigned Items list. The default sort order for this list will be by the date the item was last updated. Users can sort by Due Date and Item (alpha). In addition, for users with larger sets of action items, they are able to search by keyword. The search will comb through all fields in the "Item" column. When a user has less than 5 action items, the Additional Assigned Items section will not appear.
Interfolio User Menu
Only relevant options will be displayed.
Branding Settings are only available to level 1, Institutional Administrators at an institution.
Interfolio Dossier will only be available to those who have:
- A personal Dossier account associated with the same e-mail address that is associated with the institutional Interfolio (Faculty180, Review, Promotion, & Tenure, or Faculty Search) account.
- A Dossier Institution account provided by their institution.
If a user has multiple administrative privileges, they will have another option to change their permission sets. This will ONLY be available from a Faculty180 specific page, similar to Quicklinks. It also is accessible via the Tools section of the Administrator page in the Admin section of the navigation bar.
