Getting from point A to point B isn’t the same for everyone. In fact, the journey is just as important as the destination! Each day, we see examples of our clients using Activity Insight in different ways to reach their objectives. These stories inspired our 2018 User Group theme, Routes to Success. Continue reading “User Group 2018: Routes to Success”
Louisiana State University (LSU), the University of Texas at Arlington (UTA) and the University of Northern Colorado (UNCO) are among the universities who began using Workflow for Activity Insight when it became available in July. LSU’s rollout began with sabbatical requests. UTA is rolling out Workflow to its School of Business, which already uses Activity Insight, ahead of a campus-wide rollout of Activity Insight and Workflow. UNCO, which had used Activity Insight on campus for several years, dove straight into tenure and promotion. Each shared stories of early Workflow success in a panel discussion at our recent User Group.
Here are excerpts of the conversation between Joslyn Krismer, Director of Academic Operations at UTA; Nikki McNamara, Assistant Director of Human Resources Information Systems at LSU, and Mark Smith, Associate Dean, College of Natural & Health Sciences at UNCO, moderated by Kate Kaczmarczik, Digital Measures Product Marketing Manager.

People who attend User Group tell us that they really value learning from their peers in higher education—and they love being the first to learn about what’s on the horizon at Digital Measures. This year’s attendees have several chances to get our roadmap story and learn about Activity Insight, Workflow and what’s ahead for 2018.
DM Download with Matt Bartel
Every year, Digital Measures CEO and Founder Matt Bartel shares his look at the current state of higher education and his vision for the company . He’ll discuss the opportunities that Digital Measures sees to provide universities with tools that allow you to effectively and accurately share your stories of individual and university accomplishment and impact.
It’s been an exciting year of development and new releases at DM. In “Our 2017 Roadmap Story,” Product Management team lead Ella Ozier will share the new features and capabilities we’ve developed since User Group 2016, and how that impacts our colleagues Professor Harry Brown and Activity Insight Administrator Naiobi Richards at the fictional (but very relatable!) Your University. You will also meet a new Workflow Administrator at YourU.

A new mug is joining our mug wall! We are pleased to announce that the University of Maryland (UMD) has joined the rapidly growing list of 150+ university-wide clients that leverage Activity Insight to capture and report on faculty activities and accomplishments.

We recently released the new Workflow Module for managing university processes within Activity Insight. For the past year, we collaborated with more than 25 partner clients to expand our previous capabilities to make the Workflow Module even more powerful.
Activity Insight simplifies collecting information from faculty and building reports. Our Workflow Module brings the same efficiency to annual faculty reviews, promotion and tenure, sabbatical requests and more.
With easy-to-use tools, you can now make your university’s processes paperless and predictable. Materials get into the right hands—and only the right hands—at the right time, automated reminders ensure tasks are completed on schedule, and status updates empower faculty and administrators to track progress, all in one secure system. And it’s seamlessly integrated within Activity Insight so you can fully leverage your faculty’s accomplishments in the processes you digitize. You’ll never have to ask faculty to input the same information twice.
Collaboration with clients drives everything we do at Digital Measures. Thank you to our partner universities: your enthusiasm and feedback during our product development process made the evolution of our new Workflow Module possible.
Workflow makes Activity Insight a truly one-stop shop for gathering, reporting and evaluating faculty qualifications, accomplishments and impact. We use this blog to share clients’ success, so watch in the weeks ahead for stories of improving key university processes with Workflow.
The right faculty activity reporting solution makes collecting and reporting information on faculty accomplishments and impacts vastly more efficient. In fact, Activity Insight’s promise is “Capture data once, use it infinitely.” So instead of digging through file cabinets and ring binders for the same information—again—faculty enter data once, building a body of information tailored to your university’s known reporting requirements. And that data can be queried, so if the media or a legislator call looking for a particular bit of information, it’s just a few clicks away. Now, you can multiply the efficiencies of faculty activity reporting by digitizing your processes with the new Workflow Module for Activity Insight. Continue reading “Multiply FAR Efficiencies With Workflow”
If you’ve ever made an online purchase, you’ve experienced the benefits of a digital workflow. After a small amount of account setup, you add items to a virtual cart, make payment and receive updates right up to the time your order arrives on your doorstep—a great leap in efficiency and convenience compared to the old system of filling out a catalog order form or calling an 800 number. Best of all, once you complete the initial setup, you can make purchases again and again without re-entering anything—just select your items and click “order now.” Wouldn’t it be great if faculty annual reviews and promotion and tenure could be as easy and efficient? Now they can, with the Workflow Module for Activity Insight. Continue reading “Embrace the Benefits of Digital Workflow”
