School: Organizational Structure

The organizational structure outlines the unit hierarchy within the institution and is a key component to data management in Faculty180. This article will cover how administrators with the necessary permissions can setup and manage the organizational structure.

Before setting up the organizational structure, the unit designations and academic terms must be set up in the Details screen.

If there is a change to your institution's organizational structure, reach out to Interfolio support to assist with making the necessary changes.
