ByCommittee Faculty Search users can read and annotate application documents using our built-in document viewer.
Application documents from multiple applicants can be loaded into the viewer, allowing uses to scroll through and evaluate multiple applicants without leaving the browser window.
Users can also make annotations on application documents, and if enabled, can leave comments, add labels, and rate applicants from the document viewer.
The instructions below are for accessing the document viewer from the Applications page of a position. This allows evaluators to load multiple applications in to the viewer at once. Evaluators can also use the document viewer from the profile page of an individual applicant.
Select applications to review
On the Applications page, check the box next to "Applicant" at the top of the table to select all applications -or- check the box next to the name of each individual applicant you want to review.
A new row of buttons will appear above the list of applicants
The buttons that display here are determined by your level of permissions in the program.
