Manage Activities in Digital Measures
From the “Activities” page, you are able to input information into five sections: General Information; Career Information, Teaching/Mentoring, Scholarship/Research and Service. Dates are very important on each screen and you will not be able to save a record without entering at least the year in one of the date fields. If you enter a start date and leave the end date blank that will mean the activity is to the “present”.
To access a screen, click on the name of the screen this will then take you to a “Summary Screen” showing your current records. You can take multiple actions depending on the screen you are in:
- To Add a new record, select the “Add New Item” button, always located at the top right.
- To delete a record, select the check box on the right side of the record, and then select the trash can button at the top. You will be prompted with a pop-up window verifying you want to delete the selected record(s).
- To copy a record, select the check box on the right side of the record, and then select the “Duplicate” button. (You cannot copy from one screen to another.)
- The Publications screen allows you to import from a 3rdparty or from a BibTeX file, select the “Import Items” button to import.
You will find the PasteBoard button to be a time‐saving feature. The PasteBoard allows you to copy text from another document, such as your vita in Microsoft Word, and paste it into the PasteBoard. After you have pasted text into the PasteBoard, you can then select text from it, click‐and‐hold on the text you selected and drag the it into a field in the system to have it pasted into the field.
To access the PasteBoard, click the text PasteBoard in the left‐hand menu under Manage Activities. The PasteBoard will appear in the bottom right‐hand corner of your screen and can be dragged anywhere on the screen as needed. Any text in the PasteBoard upon logging out will remain in the PasteBoard for future sessions.
Activity Insight will notify you if you try to navigate away from a screen without saving it. To preserve your changes, select one of the two save buttons (Save or Save + Add Another) at the top of the screen when you are finished working on a particular record. Some screens have significant or required fields where you must enter information before saving.
