Heads up: Interfolio’s new look enters ByCommittee

ByCommittee Faculty Search | ByCommittee Promotion & Tenure | Releases

In the coming week, our updates to Interfolio’s overall look and feel will continue in ByCommittee with a cohesive set of new colors, styles, fonts, and visual cues. It’s going to make the whole online platform easier on the eyes. But don’t worry—everything you could do before, you’ll still be able to do. 

In a nutshell, you’ll see the new look when:

  • navigating around ByCommittee
  • generating reports and managing users or units
  • viewing lists of positions and applicants in ByCommittee Faculty Search

Navigating Around ByCommittee

In both ByCommittee Faculty Search and ByCommittee Promotion & Tenure, we’ve shifted the upper right buttons for the “Administration,” “Reports,” and “Users” pages into a horizontal bar at the top.

Tabbed Views (Generating Reports, Managing Users/Units)

On a handful of pages in both ByCommittee Faculty Search and ByCommittee Promotion & Tenure, we have reorganized information into a tabbed appearance.

You’ll find this tabbed view on the following pages:

  • Users and Units (ByCommittee Faculty Search)
  • Users, Units, and Committees (ByCommittee Promotion & Tenure)

Approval (Viewing the “Positions” List)

In ByCommittee Faculty Search, on the list of positions, we’ve color-coded positions that require approval within the system with a lighter green.
