Make Annotations on Application Documents

Committee members can add annotations to individual documents when viewing application documents in the document viewer. Annotations can be made anywhere in any document.

The annotations created here are private, personal notes about an application, similar to attaching sticky notes or marking up a document with comments. Such annotations come in handy if you are a committee member reviewing a large number of applications and need to remember your thoughts about each applicant.

Unlike comments, which can be viewed by other committee members, these annotations are visible only to the evaluator who created them. Only in extreme cases (such as a lawsuit that demands discovery of all private documents) are annotations "discoverable."  

Annotations have their own tab in the document viewer, making them easy to quickly find on the page.

Navigate to the Applications page for the position you are evaluating:

Select "View Positions" on your Faculty Search Account Dashboard

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.

Select applications to review

Click "Read" to load selected applications into the document viewer

Selecting names in the list opens a new set of buttons on the page. The buttons that open here are determined by the actions your user role can perform in the program. Committee Managers and Administrators will see a few more buttons than Evaluators.

Click "Read" to load selected applications into the document viewer

All selected applications will be loaded into the viewer for you to review one at a time
