Making and Managing Exceptions for Faculty
It is likely that at some point, individual faculty members may have circumstances that require exceptions to be made in their journey. It is easy to create exceptions in Lifecycle Management that will apply only to a a given user, but will not effect other faculty members of the same rank and/or on the same professional journey.
When someone is added to the program, they are scheduled to go through the ranks and events that are part of their appointment at a particular rank and year. Events can be added or deleted for an individual, and these changes will not effect other users. The most common example would be changes in the timeline of events because of leave, or when users are hired or appointed outside of rank.
Exceptions can be created and managed from the profile of an individual faculty member.
Click the faculty member's name to open their profile
Scroll to the bottom of the profile page to view the faculty member's professional journey
Click the Add Event button to the right of the timeline to add an event to the faculty member's timeline of reviews. This event will be added only to the timeline of the faculty member you are editing, and will become part of the faculty member's individual professional journey.
Click the edit pencil on the event tile to edit an existing event.
In this way you can record an outcome for an event.
This is also where you can create an exception to exempt a faculty member from an upcoming review in their timeline, or reschedule an upcoming event.
Click Cancel Event to deactivate the event in the timeline of the faculty member. The event will still appear in the timeline of the faculty member so you can keep a record of it, and can restore the event at any time.
