Read and Evaluate Applications Using the Document Reader
Faculty Search users can read and annotate application materials using our built-in viewer.
Materials from multiple applicants can be loaded into the viewer, allowing users to scroll through and evaluate applications without leaving the browser window.
Users can also make annotations on application materials, download the annotations they make, and if enabled, can leave comments, add labels, and rate applicants from the viewer.
The instructions below are for accessing the viewer from the Applications page of a position. Accessing the viewer from here allows evaluators to load multiple applications into the viewer at once. Note that evaluators can also access the viewer from the profile page of an individual applicant and read one application at a time.
